I thought they had a “cpu x or equivalent” kind of language, like rental cars.

Yeah, it depends on what they deem to be equivalent. AWS already offer AMD cores, and they're 10% cheaper compared to Intel cores - https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/amd/

AWS mostly did away with that years ago; AFAIK first-tier cloud providers all promise a specific CPU model. And yes, and AMD vCPU is cheaper than an Intel vCPU.
