Google Cloud and NVIDIA Set New Training Records on MLPerf v0.6 Benchmark

Today the MLPerf effort released results for MLPerf Training v0.6, the second round of results from their machine learning training performance benchmark suite. MLPerf is a consortium of over 40 companies and researchers from leading universities, and the MLPerf benchmark suites are rapidly becoming the industry standard for measuring machine learning performance. “We are creating a common yardstick for training and inference performance,” said Peter Mattson, MLPerf General Chair.

New MLPerf Benchmark Measures Machine Learning Inference Performance

Today a consortium involving over 40 leading companies and university researchers introduced MLPerf Inference v0.5, the first industry standard machine learning benchmark suite for measuring system performance and power efficiency. “Our goal is to create common and relevant metrics to assess new machine learning software frameworks, hardware accelerators, and cloud and edge computing platforms in real-life situations,” said David Kanter, co-chair of the MLPerf inference working group. “The inference benchmarks will establish a level playing field that even the smallest companies can use to compete.”
