Introducing Amazon EC2 M7a instances (Preview)
AWS announces the preview of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M7a instances. M7a instances are designed to deliver the best x86 performance and price performance within the Amazon EC2 general purpose family, based on SPECint benchmarks. M7a instances are powered by fourth-generation AMD EPYC processors (code named Genoa) with an all-core turbo frequency of up to 3.7GHz. These instances deliver up to 50% greater performance on average compared to M6a instances. M7a instances offer new processor capabilities such as AVX3-512, VNNI, and BFloat16\. They feature Double Data Rate 5 (DDR5) memory, which provides 50% higher memory bandwidth compared to DDR4 memory to enable high-speed access to data in memory. M7a instances are built on the [AWS Nitro System](https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/nitro/) and ideal for applications that benefit from high performance and high throughput such as financial applications, application servers, simulation modeling, gaming, mid-size data stores, application development environments, and caching fleets.
