In June of 2016, Intel launched its latest Xeon Phi Processor, Knights Landing (KNL), which attracted immense attention in the industry. KNL has up to 72 cores, its double-precision floating-point performance is more than 3TFlops while the single-precision is more than 6TFlops, which is seen as a revolutionary product for high-performance computing and deep learning. John Hu believes that KNL's strong performance can adequately meet the demands of structuring deep learning offline training platform. FPGA has an impressive performance per watt, which is five times greater than that of the CPU and is hugely energy-efficient, so it is an ideal choice for structuring the deep learning online identification platform. Therefore, KNL+FPGA is a perfect match for accelerating deep learning applications.
Inspur is a leading global service provider for cloud computing, big data and high-performance computing. Inspur's deep learning solutions have been adopted by Baidu, Alibaba, Qihoo360, IFLYTEK and many other Internet companies, covering 60% of the market. A few months back, Inspur launched a worldwide release on the latest deep learning computing framework, Caffe-MPI, of the KNL platform. Its high performance and scalability are able to meet the needs of the compute-intensive and network-intensive model.
