Yes, but I was comparing "spot" prices to my power costs and still twice as much as I pay for my power. Don't forget all those virtualization AWS does has overhead, too. The most ridiculous overpriced AWS stuff is the 9ct / GB outgoing traffic fee.

Back to topic: I have not tried GCP or Azure instead of AWS. However, I have heard that they are less expensive, so it might be worthy to try those platforms for GIMPS.
