1.66 TFLOPS performance - Provides up to 33 percent faster single-precision
compute performance compared to the previous generation Radeon Pro GPU.
Research groups study the impact of using single-precision
arithmetic on simulation accuracy with different dynamical cores (Duben and Palmer 2014; Duben et al.
Lindahl and his team also found that they could replace many of the double-precision floating point operations in RELION with single-precision
operations, without sacrificing accuracy.
Unlike TPU v1, which could only handle 8-bit integer operations, Google added support for single-precision
floats in TPU v2 and added 8GB of HBM memory to each TPU to improve performance.
Usage of single-precision
variables yields to saving almost 50% of RAM memory as well as about 30% of processing time.
Radeon Pro Vega delivers 11 teraflops of single-precision
computing power and up to 22 teraflops of half-precision computation performance.
Each Tesla V100 SXM2 provides 16GB of CoWoS HBM2 Stacked Memory and a staggering 125 TeraFLOPS mixed-precision deep learning performance, 15.7 TeraFLOPS single-precision
performance and 7.8 TeraFLOPS double-precision performance with NVIDIA GPU Boost technology.
Apple claims that this allows the new iMac Pro to offer 11 Teraflops of single-precision
Software analysis led to the conclusion that the limit is caused by the resolution of the single-precision
floating-point format used by a 32-bit device and software.
The computations are done in single-precision
In addition, the MapleSim CAD Toolbox has been extended to work with the latest versions of major CAD tools, and the MapleSim Connector now supports single-precision
export of Simulink[R] S-functions.
