Following the Graviton2's first official announcement back in December, as well as the preview period that has been going on for several months now, Amazon has today publicly launched new m6g instanced based on their new in-house Arm platform.

We had a more in-depth look into the Graviton2 in our analysis article back in March, and the Amazon silicon and Arm's Neoverse-N1 cores certainly delivered on its promises, showcasing competitive performance both in single-threaded as well as multi-threaded scenarios. Most importantly, on AWS, the m6g instances delivered better cost efficiency compared to competing Intel and AMD-based instances. 

The new m6g instances in Amazon's main global regions, including US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) starting today.

    Intel have been hit by bad news everywhere recently. WIth more and more viable competitors attacking their cash cows, it should be a matter of time they feel serious pain. I believe AMD is already giving them a hard time both in the enterprise and consumer sector. As these big companies start rolling out their own chips, demand for Intel chip will inevitably decline year on year. Reply
