Okay, but what exactly changed?

You might have seen the macOS performance increases that we introduced with Gen 2 in June. We wanted to increase the performance of our Linux build environments too. So, in early September, we started to use stronger Linux machines to provide better build performance: we switched to a newer CPU architecture and also increased the memory available:

How do I get this?

Start a new build. 😏

These changes were applied automatically to all builds using any Linux machine type: Standard, Elite, and Elite-XL.

How much extra does this cost?

There is no price increase in any of the plans:

  • Concurrency based users have the same price as before
  • Teams and Velocity customers can use the same Linux machine types for the same credit multipliers:

Can we see some actual numbers?

Sure.

Start a new build or compare your recent build times with one from August (or earlier).

Happy building! 🚀
