Up to 30x Inference Throughput Improvement on Intel® Xeon® Platinum 9282 processor with Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost): Tested by Intel as of 2/26/2019. Platform: Dragon rock 2 socket Intel® Xeon® Platinum 9282 processor (56 cores per socket), HT ON, turbo ON, Total Memory 768 GB (24 slots/ 32 GB/ 2933 MHz), BIOS:SE5C620.86B.0D.01.0241.112020180249, CentOS 7 Kernel 3.10.0-957.5.1.el7.x86_64, Deep Learning Framework: Intel® Optimization for Caffe* version: https://github.com/intel/caffe d554cbf1, ICC 2019.2.187, MKL DNN version: v0.17 (commit hash: 830a10059a018cd2634d94195140cf2d8790a75a), model: https://github.com/intel/caffe/blob/master/models/intel_optimized_models/int8/resnet50_int8_full_conv.prototxt, BS=64, No datalayer syntheticData:3x224x224, 56 instance/2 socket, Datatype: INT8 vs Tested by Intel as of July 11th 2017: 2S Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor CPU @ 2.50GHz (28 cores), HT disabled, turbo disabled, scaling governor set to "performance" via intel_pstate driver, 384GB DDR4-2666 ECC RAM. CentOS Linux* release 7.3.1611 (Core), Linux* kernel 3.10.0-514.10.2.el7.x86_64. SSD: Intel® SSD Data Center S3700 Series (800GB, 2.5in SATA 6Gb/s, 25nm, MLC). Performance measured with: Environment variables: KMP_AFFINITY='granularity=fine, compact‘, OMP_NUM_THREADS=56, CPU freq set with CPU Power frequency-set -d 2.5G -u 3.8G -g performance. Caffe: (http://github.com/intel/caffe/), revision f96b759f71b2281835f690af267158b82b150b5c. Inference measured with “caffe time --forward_only” command, training measured with "caffe time" command. For "ConvNet" topologies, synthetic dataset was used. For other topologies, data was stored on local storage and cached in memory before training. Topology specs from https://github.com/intel/caffe/tree/master/models/intel_optimized_models(ResNet-50). Intel® C++ Compiler ver. 17.0.2 20170213, Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) small libraries version 2018.0.20170425. Caffe run with "numactl -l".
