Default GPU cloud service from Lambda Labs

I came across a company called Lambda Labs that recently started offering GPU cloud services: https://lambdalabs.com/service/gpu-cloud

At first glance, the 8-GPU instance seems like a good deal compared to a p3.16xlarge instance on AWS. Both have eight Tesla V100 GPUs and roughly the same amount of memory. However, the former has 96 vCPUs as opposed to 64 on AWS and costs "only" $12 per hour as opposed to $24.48 per hour. Anyone know if it's as good as it looks on paper?

I should note a three-year reserved instance on Amazon EC2 is still cheaper in the long run at around $7.90 per hour. But it's hard to imagine anyone (except maybe Ben Delo) spending $200k just for GIMPS.
