    Well, it > doubles memory bandwidth, but has only 60 CUs (instead of 64) and just runs them at higher clocks. So, unless Michael enables 8-bit or 4-bit options for inferencing, probably don't expect too much. Certainly, no more than about 2x (in memory-bound workloads).

    And it's still no match for Nvidia's Tensor cores (which these benchmarks don't seem to be using).

      Michael has the wrong hardware, if you care about fp64.

      Nvidia's Titan V is rated at 6.14 TFLOPS, while AMD's MI60 is rated at 7.36 TFLOPS. Anything consumer-grade is a toy, by comparison.

        Pretty much, yeah. I think they're bumping some clock speeds a small amount and limiting the fp64 rate vs the pro card.
        It's 1/4th of the MI60, whereas Vega 64 is about half that. So, it'll net you more than 1 TFLOPS of fp64.

        I guess that's something.

          In terms of Machine Learning performance the only framework worth benchmarking and whose results matter is Tensorflow.

          GitHub stats: PlaidML - 1.9k stars, Tensorflow - 121k stars.

          Very few people heard or care about PlaidML.
