Hi Preethi,


I installed tensorflow in my Windows 10 through conda install -c anaconda tensorflow.  Now how do I make sure that this tensorflow build is using Intel MKL-DNN primitives.  In other words, is there a command inside tensorflow to check this similar to checking if tensorflow is using GPU.




Hi Srinivasan,

Right now the optimized TF 1.9 is available only for Linux OS
