    Intel® Deep Learning Boost

    New Intel® Deep Learning Boost speeds up dense computations characteristic of various neural networks. Available on all 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (code-named Cascade Lake), Intel Deep Learning Boost provides low-precision integer operations to significantly accelerate performance for deep learning inference applications, including image recognition, object detection, data analytics, and more. This dramatic performance improvement and efficiency is delivered by using a single instruction for int8 convolutions for deep learning inference applications, which required three separate instructions in previous-generation processors. No hardware changes are required to support Intel Deep Learning Boost on 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

    Developers can access the new Intel Deep Learning Boost capabilities to boost performance of int8 data types in deep learning workloads using Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit to streamline deployment of deep learning inference.
