I attempted to test the scaling capabilities of an 8K x265 encoding benchmark which I created a few years ago. What I wanted to do was to check how it would behave with 128 or maybe even more vCPUs. Even if the VM would've worked for just a few hours (given the credit and the costs) it would've been fine for me.
Unfortunately, with a 4 vCPU limit, it's utterly useless for my testing purposes. Any desktop or workstation PC can do (much) better than that. :(
