In addition to having all the capabilities of the standard queue, FIFO (First-In-First-Out) queues are designed to enhance messaging between applications when the order of operations and events is critical, or where duplicates can't be tolerated. FIFO queues also provide exactly-once processing but are limited to 300 transactions per second (TPS).

Q: Does Amazon SQS provide first-in-first-out (FIFO) access to messages?
Amazon SQS provides a loose-FIFO capability that attempts to preserve the order of messages. However, we have designed Amazon SQS to be massively scalable using a distributed architecture. Thus, we can't guarantee that you will always receive messages in the exact order you sent them (FIFO).
If your system requires the order of messages to be preserved, place sequencing information in each message so that messages can be ordered when they are received.
而現在則是名正言順的說有提供 FIFO 了：
Q: Does Amazon SQS provide message ordering?
Yes. FIFO (first-in-first-out) queues preserve the exact order in which messages are sent and received. If you use a FIFO queue, you don't have to place sequencing information in your messages. For more information, see FIFO Queue Logic in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide.
Standard queues provide a loose-FIFO capability that attempts to preserve the order of messages. However, because standard queues are designed to be massively scalable using a highly distributed architecture, receiving messages in the exact order they are sent is not guaranteed.
