Higher CPU count virtual environments planned?

Hiya! I couldn’t find any information laying around in the existing GitHub actions documentation about higher CPU instances being available. I was wondering if anyone knew of plans to offer build agents with higher CPUs in the future? Sadly I have a test suite that takes 35 minutes to run in GitHub Actions because it’s highly parallel, and 2 CPUs doesn’t scale well.

This is a paid org plan, so I’d be more than happy to consider higher cost instances if available.

Yes, we’ll have more compute options available in the future.  Our first offering here will be the ability to provide self-hosted runners, so you can bring your own compute needs to GitHub Actions.  We’ll explore additional offerings after that.
