AWS CEO Andy Jassy said: "We know that we want to keep pushing that price-performance below on machine learning trading, so we’re going to have to invest in our own chips. You have an unmatched array of instances in AWS, coupled with innovation in chips."

The company added Trainium will offer the most teraflops of any machine learning instance in the cloud.
