Seems boost mode is no longer available in the cloud shell?

Was trying to follow through the ACE course, then on the cloud shell intro video, I realized that some options like Boost Mode are not available on my cloud console. Probably it’s because it was removed in the free tier or something?

I believe that boost mode does not exist anymore, as the cloud shell’s VM is quite powerful (4 vCPUs & 15GB of memory)

I noticed that as well. There is no boost mode. Where did you find the information about cloud shell VM specs (4 vcpu/16 GB RAM)


I think the only possible way to check VM spec is on the GCP console.

Looks like it is gone. Can anyone confirm this / what has changed here?
