Benchmarking Amazon's New EC2 "C3" Instance Types
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 20 November 2013. Page 4 of 4. Add A Comment

Overall these new Ivy Bridge backed Amazon EC2 C3 instance types are incredibly powerful and range in price and speed from being slower than a several year old AMD Opteron 2384 quad-core at $0.15 USD per hour to being much faster than a $1000 Core i7 4960X Extreme Edition processor but at a rate of $2.40 USD per hour. To compare your own system(s) performance to the results shared today, install the Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1311209-SO-AMAZONEC351. It's that easy!
