* All measurements based on comparing GCP 32 vCPU machine type instances between Intel Xeon processor codenamed "Skylake" versus previous generation Intel Xeon processor codenamed "Broadwell." 20% based on SpecINT. 82% based on on High Performance Linpack for 4 node cluster with AVX512. Performance improvements include improvements from use of Math Kernal Library and Intel AVX512.. Performance tests are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions, and may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases. For more information go to ** To help customers experience Skylake, we are offering Skylake VMs without an additional fee until July 30th, 2017. After this date, Skylake VMs will be priced at a 6-10% premium.

Benefits of using Intel's Xeon Scalable Processor (Skylake) on Google Cloud Platform

Faster response times for a wide range of workloads

Google Cloud customers have run millions of hours on Skylake machine types, seeing increased performance for a variety of applications such as 3D rendering, genomic research, HPC, financial risk calculations, scientific visualizations & data analytics.

Choose the best processor for your workload

Leverage the flexibility to choose the best processor for your workload needs with the CPU Platform selector tool. Select a specific Intel CPU platform, and Google Compute Engine will always schedule your machine type to that CPU family or above.

Double the floating point performance

Applications that take advantage of Intel AVX-512 in Skylake can benefit from up to 2X floating point performance in order to handle your most compute-intensive workloads.

Custom Machine Types

Leverage Google’s expertise in workload scheduling through Custom Machine Types. Size your machine types to existing workloads & efficiently schedule jobs and machine types of any size to avoid overpaying.

Per-Second Billing
