AWS T2 vs T3 Performance
Amazon just came out with the new 3rd generation of burst-able EC2 servers and to keep things short, you should shut down your t2 servers and restart them as t3.
1 Core from an Intel Xeon E5-2676 v3 @ 2.40Ghz (released 2013)
3227 Geekbench Single-Core
3025 Geekbench Multi-Core
15.5 GB/sec Memory Bandwidth
2 Core from an Intel Xeon Undisclosed @ 2.50Ghz
3437 Geekbench Single-Core
4571 Geekbench Multi-Core
9.31 GB/sec Memory Bandwidth
From the looks of it, clock speed is only marginally higher but that isn’t the impressive part. On the t2.micro, it was not unexpected to see the multi-core score lower than the single core, but now that t3.micro has 2 core, its able to get a huge 1,500 boast to its score which will help with multi-threaded processes like webservers.
