AWS announces the general availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Trn1 instances. Amazon EC2 Trn1 instances are powered by AWS Trainium chips, which are purpose built for high-performance ML training applications in the cloud. Trn1 instances deliver the highest performance on deep learning (DL) training of popular natural language processing (NLP) models on AWS while offering up to 50% cost savings over comparable GPU-based EC2 instances. You can get started with Trn1 instances by using popular ML frameworks, such as PyTorch and TensorFlow, helping you to lower training costs, reduce training times, iterate faster to build more innovative models, and increase productivity. You can use EC2 Trn1 instances to train natural language processing (NLP), computer vision, and recommender models across a broad set of applications, such as speech recognition, recommendation, fraud detection, image and video classification, and forecasting.
