Customers can now deploy compute-intensive applications such as machine learning inferencing, multimedia processing, scientific simulations, HPC, and financial modeling that leverage Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) to meet their performance requirements on Amazon Lambda in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.

AVX2 read the allows CPU to perform a higher number of integer and floating-point operations per clock cycle, thus speeding up CPU intensive workloads with parallelizable operations, allowing customers to process data faster, improve throughput, schedule data-intensive jobs, and deliver performant end-user experiences. Starting today, customers can either compile their existing workloads or deploy new ones to target this instruction set at no additional cost.
