This latest release includes the following updates:

  • GameLift FleetIQ game server groups can now be configured to manage the AMD instance families C5a, M5a, and R5a. Allowed EC2 instance types, as listed for the GameServerGroup InstanceDefinition (InstanceDefinition - Amazon GameLift Service), now include the following:
    • c5a.large, c5a.xlarge, c5a.2xlarge, c5a.4xlarge, c5a.8xlarge, c5a.12xlarge, c5a.16xlarge, c5a.24xlarge
    • m5a.large, m5a.xlarge, m5a.2xlarge, m5a.4xlarge, m5a.8xlarge, m5a.12xlarge, m5a.16xlarge, m5a.24xlarge
