GTC Silicon Valley-2019 ID:S9926:Tensor Core Performance: The Ultimate Guide
Learn what's needed to achieve optimal performance on NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs. We'll review the fundamentals of GPU performance, explain how Tensor Core-accelerated operations work, and use this knowledge to infer how to structure and size neural network operations (layers) to achieve ideal performance. We'll also provide a cheat sheet of Tensor Core performance guidelines. The talk aims to provide tools to understand why neural networks perform a certain way on Tensor Core GPUs and to enable changes to network architecture to further improve performance.
