CircleCI Ideas

Resource classes favoring higher CPU (not ram)

What:
Resource classes that introduce higher CPU without additional memory, balancing the credits required accordingly.

Why:
Current resource class options all step CPU & RAM in ratio of 1:2.  Some use cases are heavily CPU bound, but not memory bound, and for various architectural limitations of these 3rd testing tools are not capable of leveraging GPU class machines.  Ideally these classes would ahve a ratio of 1:1 or even 2:1 of CPU:Mem

Example Libraries/Tools benefiting:
Visual regression testing tools like https://github.com/americanexpress/jest-image-snapshot have been cited as examples of CPU intensive needs.
