How does this compare price wise with t2 instances?

It specifies how cheap the t3s can be but not the difference between t2 and t3.

You can find pricing details at https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/on-demand/

Pricing varies from region to region, on-demand vs. reserved instance, etc.

The general answer is they are cheaper than the same sized t2 version.

The blog post mentions this:

> If the instance runs at higher CPU utilization for a prolonged period, there will be an additional charge of $0.05 per vCPU-hour.

But that (rather important detail) seems to have been omitted from the pricing page?

Farther down the page it talks about T2 Unlimited pricing, which is the same thing here. It does look like it needs to be updated to include details for T3 as well, however.

I'll submit some feedback to the documentation team about getting that updated.

Will these be available for RDS?

I don't have any insider knowledge on this, so your guess is as good as mine on this one :)

If you have an account manager or solutions architect, they can probably help you connect with the right people to ask for details, though.

An RDS T2 is not an EC2 T2. Just named similar.

Except T3 would imply newer underlying hardware.

Baseline pricing looks about 10% cheaper for workloads that won't trigger lots of bursting. This looks like a good a choice for services that aren't CPU bound.
