AMD Touts Autodesk Inventor on Amazon EC2 G4ad Instances with AMD CPU and GPUs

AMD boasts new capacity for Radeon ProRender plugin — enables design and visualization for Inventor for Amazon EC2 G4ad instances. Enterprises can utilize and deploy cloud-based and hybrid-cloud workflow models delivering workstation-class, hardware-accelerated raytracing workflows to remote workers via the cloud.


AMD has a new blog post showcasing how designers who work with the latest version of Autodesk Inventor 2021 software can now move to the cloud. The setup involves the new certification of Autodesk Inventor 2021 software running on Amazon’s cloud platform.


Powered by 2nd generation AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD Radeon Pro V520 GPUs, Amazon EC2 G4ad instances accelerate the design and engineering processes, from 2D and 3D CAD drawings to 3D modeling, rendering, animations, and simulation.

Cloud-based and hybrid-cloud workflow models are ever more important in the current pandemic context and more enterprises and small to medium-sized firms are deploying them as part of their IT infrastructure. They help support flexible working conditions and keep remote staff working at optimal capacity.
