I need a Linux box with OS such as Ubuntu.

I want to run a benchmark that uses many CPUs. I'd like something between 32 and 96. I only need 5 minutes for the benchmark. Before and afterwards I only need a dual core or so.

Which instance do I need for this?

    Your question is answered by the first Google result when searching "AWS instance types". – Spooler Jan 15 '18 at 20:48

In Google cloud platform instances are up to 96 CPU vcores. It is possible to select different architectures, from Sandy Bridge up to Skylake. However if you select a cpu from over 64 cores, the only one possibility is Skylake.

Not all of the arquitectures are present in all of the regions. Here you can find a list of the regions to get to know which architectures are available.
