Google Cloud Unveils Performance of T2D VMs with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC Processors
Today, Google Cloud announced new performance metrics of its T2D instances, the first in a family of virtual machines (VMs) for the Google Compute Platform unveiled in June. T2D VMs, powered exclusively by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, take advantage of the high-performance “Zen 3” cores which show strong performance in high-performance computing applications. In this case, tests using an AMD EPYC 7B13 processor showed:
- T2D VMs deliver, on average, 52% higher performance for 16 vCPU VMs and 47% higher performance for 32 vCPU VMs, when compared to general-purpose VMs from other leading public cloud vendors, across a variety of tests including image processing, database, video codec, compile time, compression and cryptography.
AMD continues to see momentum in Google Cloud adoption of EPYC with the recently announced preview of Google Cloud N2D VMs powered by AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors, which deliver on average over 30% better price-performance compared to previous generation EPYC processors.
I’ve included several case studies below of AMD-Google Cloud VMs for reference.
- N2D: FullStory, the leader in digital experience intelligence and #1048 on Inc’s 5000 fastest growing private companies, drove 29% query performance gains on average.
- N2D: Lytics, a leading customer data platform, saw a 13% reduction in costs and 14-20% better performance.
