These images are for customer preview only. Optimizations in these containers will be available officially in the 2.5 release of Intel® Optimizations for TensorFlow*.

3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, code-named Ice Lake, deliver industry-leading, workload-optimized platforms with built-in AI acceleration, providing a seamless performance foundation to help speed data’s transformative impact. Enhanced Intel Deep Learning Boost, with the industry’s first x86 support of Brain Floating Point 16-bit (blfoat16) numeric format and Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI), brings enhanced artificial intelligence inference and training performance, with up to 1.93X more AI training performance and 1.87X more AI inference performance for image classification vs. the prior generation.

Intel® Optimizations for TensorFlow* with Open MPI* and Horovod* is a binary distribution of TensorFlow* with Intel® oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library(Intel® oneDNN) primitives, a popular performance library for deep learning applications. TensorFlow* is a widely-used machine learning framework in the deep learning arena, demanding efficient utilization of computational resources. In order to take full advantage of Intel® architecture and to extract maximum performance, the TensorFlow* framework has been optimized using Intel® oneDNN primitives.

Includes the Python3 interpreter and the following wheel(s) and librarie(s) are pre-installed:
