As the world's first marketplace for cloud GPU rental, is excited to announce another first: we're expanding our offerings to include AMD support!

With this latest update, we're welcoming both the Radeon and Instinct product lines from AMD to the existing array of NVIDIA machines available for rent on our marketplace. As we widen the range of supported hardware, we can help connect even more customers with the specific GPU compute requirements they're looking for.

Here are the AMD GPUs we have available now.

Now Supporting AMD Instinct and Radeon GPUs

The Instinct line is AMD's brand of data center GPUs, intended to accelerate deep learning, artificial neural network, and high-performance computing tasks, while the Radeon line is aimed at gaming and consumer-grade applications. With both now supported on Vast, this expansion means more versatility and options for all of our users.

Travis Cannell, COO at, highlights the strategic advantage of the update: "We are interested in partnering with managed service providers who have the Instinct line and who want to increase the utilization of their clusters, as well as the Radeon line for as our users have needs for remote gaming, rendering and more."

Ultimately, our platform will now be better equipped to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our user base – from data centers to gamers and everyone in between. Whether you're scaling up operations or just starting out, we're here to support your computing journey.
