@dakull in articol compara si Xeon Phi cu placile NVidia pentru deep learning, spune de ce placile NVidia sunt mai bune decat Xeon Phi si ca performantele GTX 1060 sunt de 5 ori mai bune decat Amazon GPU Cloud fiind cea mai buna solutie in raportul pret calitate.
Which GPU(s) to Get for Deep Learning: My Experience and Advice for Using GPUs in Deep Learning - and compared to the cloud
The GTX 1060 is the best entry GPU for when you want to try deep learning for the first time, or if you want to occasionally use it for Kaggle competition. Its 6GB memory can be quite limiting, but for many applications it is sufficient. The GTX 1060 is slower than a regular Titan X, but it is comparable in both performance and eBay price of the GTX 980. Overall this is clearly the best bang for the buck you can get. A very solid choice. However, these new Pascal cards have a are not ideal for deep learning with their 6GB or 8GB memory. That memory is quite sufficient for most tasks, for example for Kaggle competitions, most image datasets, deep style and natural language understanding tasks. But for researchers, especially if they work on ImageNet, video data or natural language understanding tasks with huge context data the regular GTX Titan X or GTX Titan X Pascal with 12GB of memory will be better – memory is just too important here. Researchers should definitely go with the new GTX Titan X Pascal due to its better speed. However, the cost difference is quite significant and if you need the memory a GTX Titan X from eBay is a very solid choice. If you already own regular GTX Titan Xs, then you should think again if the additional investment and the hassle with selling the old cards and buying the new is really worth it. I will probably keep my regular GTX Titan Xs. The options are now more limited for people that have very little money for a GPU. GPU instances on Amazon web services are quite expensive and slow now and no longer pose a good option if you have less money. I do not recommend a GTX 970 as it is slow, still rather expensive even if bought in used condition and there are memory problems associated with the card to boot. Instead, try to get the additional money to buy a GTX 1060 which is faster, has a larger memory and has no memory problems.
