AWS EC2 T3 vs T2

Amazon EC2 T3 Instances: When to Select Them for Your Workloads | Densify

AWS EC2 T3 instances offer a balance of compute, memory, and network resources, and are designed to provide a baseline level of CPU performance with the ability to burst above that baseline when needed.

T3 instances are unlimited by default, meaning that, while they won’t be throttled, they can rack up additional costs if you run CPU-hungry workloads.

T3 instances are powered by the Nitro system which means that they support network and EBS bursting.
