Nvidia TITAN X Synthetic Benchmarks Show Up to 200% Speedup with CuDNN
Apparently, Nvidia has started shipping the new Pascal based TITAN X to select reviewers. Some reviewers have thrown the card into testing for the synthetic benchmarks which have leaked out on Chiphell.
Nvidia TITAN X synthetic benchmarks show a very significant performance upgrade, up to 200% speedup in some cases, over the previous gen GeForce GTX TITAN X. That being said, it’s worth mentioning that the new TITAN X uses a newer implementation of CuDNN which means the speedup in not simply from the improved hardware on the card, but the software, as well.
Nvidia TITAN X Synthetic Benchmarks Leaked
Based on the next generation 16nm FinFET Pascal architecture, the Titan X has 16% more cores and a 42% higher clock rate. In other words, we are looking at a raw compute increase of around 66%.
According to Nvidia TITAN X synthetic benchmarks, you can expect a speedup of 74% to 91% on Alexnet, 76% to 200% on OverFeat, 74% to 884% on Inception and 91% to 98% on VGG. This is coupled with better efficiency of course.
