Azure Virtual Machines - New Dv3 and Ev3 VM sizes
Published date: 21 July, 2017
We are excited to announce the general availability of our new Dv3 virtual machine sizes. We are also changing the naming for the high memory D sizes (D11-D14) to become the Ev3 family. These new sizes introduce Hyper-Threading Technology running on the Intel® Broadwell E5-2673 v4 2.3GHz processor and the Intel® Haswell 2.4 GHz E5-2673 v3. The shift from physical cores to virtual CPUs (vCPU) is a key architectural change which will enable us to unlock the full potential of the latest processors to support even larger virtual machine sizes. By unlocking more power from the underlying hardware, we can harness better performance and efficiency, resulting in cost savings which we are passing on to our customers. These new Hyper-Threaded sizes will be priced up to 28% lower than the previous Dv2 sizes.
