Intel Xeon Phi Benchmarks And What Nvidia Has To Say About Them

Intel published some Xeon Phi benchmarks recently and the company claimed that their architecture that consisted of small Atom CPUs was more efficient than GPUs when it came to deep learning. It seems that Nvidia does not agree with these claims and the company has made a post about how these claims are false. Whether the Xeon Phi benchmarks claims hold true or not. One thing is for sure then it comes to deep learning GPUs are the way forwards. CPUs are built for high-precision computation the deep learning requires the exact opposite. This is why GPUs are used for this purpose. There might come a day when GPUs are replaced with something better but today is not that day. Over the course of several years, Nvidia has made GPUs more efficient for…
