New instance types across Core 🐣

We've added RTX4000 and RTX5000 instances to CA1 and NY2 regions, as well as multi-GPU instances for Linux, and new low-cost CPU-only instances for Windows!

Introducing RTX4000 and RTX5000 announcement 

We're pleased to announce RTX4000 and RTX5000 instances are now generally available! 

These cards are based on NVIDIA's Turing microarchitecture and are more than 40% faster than their Pascal series counterparts.

Multi-GPU instances now available on Linux! announcement 

You can now access multi-GPU instances across all regions when selecting Linux as your OS!

P5000x2 instances start at $1.56/hr while P6000x2 instances start at $2.20/hr. 


Low-cost Windows instances now available improvement 

We solidified CPU-only offerings for Windows instances and now provide C5 - C10 instances at an affordable hourly rate.

For just $0.08/hr you can run a full Core VM in the cloud!


Other Improvements

  • We improved our backend error monitoring capabilities giving us substantially more insight into performance degradation and remediation
  • We accelerated our equipment purchasing plan to provide new hardware faster to meet demand
  • We re-wrote some business logic around storage capacity to be able to deliver much faster upgrades


More console improvements! 🧘

Last month we introduced a product selector to the console. 

Today we've launched a second phase of console redesign, adding product and team selectors to the top navigation bar and removing the sidebar entirely.

You can now find all entities that used to appear in the sidebar on the horizontal subheading bar.

We hope you enjoy the breathing room. 

Full blogpost here.

New Product Selector Sidebar!

There's a new product selector in the console sidebar! 

That means that you can now clearly delineate your Core and Gradient workspaces and have greater confidence navigating the console.

(There's also a new Paperspace Team & Accounts view to better manage your personal and team account settings.)

Gradient metrics load faster Gradient 

There was an issue where Gradient metrics would take a while to load if the workload had been running for an extended period of time. The new metrics experience is blazing fast!

New desktop app Core 

A new desktop app (v10.0) was launched with a snappier login experience. 

Other improvements and fixes

  • Upgrade button moved to the navigation bar to increase available screen real estate 
  • An API Keys link was added to the user profile icon menu

Utilization Dashboard!

We've released a new utilization dashboard to make it easy to keep track of your monthly spend in Paperspace!

This is an easy way to see how much you're spending on Paperspace month over month. 

To access the new dashboard, just go to Profile > Billing > Utilization.

New console launched!

The console just got much faster. You'll notice up to 40% speed improvements across the app -- from notebooks to machines to settings and everything in between!


Paperspace Now in 4K! πŸ™Œ

The latest version of the Paperspace desktop app is now shipping with 4K support on all Dedicated GPU machines.

All you have to do is plug-in to your 4K-enabled display, check your settings, and go!

Read the blogpost for more information.

Two additional quality of life updates have also been released: the bandwidth adjustment algorithm has been enhanced to improve streaming quality, and key/mouse input capture has been improved to provide a more reliable experience.

You should notice an overall snappier and more responsive streaming experience.

Hotkeys have arrived! 🎁

If you look in the user menu in the console, you should now see a Hotkeys option! This option will reveal a modal with all the new keyboard shortcuts now available for use in the Paperspace console. 

To access the menu, click you user icon in the top left and then the hotkeys button:

These hotkeys cover all the different views available from the Paperspace console -- from Notebooks, to Jobs, to Projects, to Machines, and more!

We hope you enjoy this new super easy way to switch contexts in the Paperspace console.

What’s New πŸš€ in 7.2.5

UX & Performance

The performance of various has been optimized to load faster & the design of a couple modals couple (upgrades, accounts) have been improved.

Billing

There is now an option to receive an email after billing runs each month. Find this under Team->Billing->Recent Invoices.

Core

The native app now supports QUIC by default - the latency experienced
during streaming a virtual desktop is minimized without incurring any
hits to performance

Gradient

Added social profiles, the ability to make notebooks public/shareable to your friends & a free GPU. These features are in closed beta at the moment, reach out to support to have it enabled.
