Select Environment

Target is a machine that hosts one or several accelerators. Device is a hardware accelerator on which a model is executed. The target can be your local workstation or a remote system. By default, your local target is selected. Learn more about setting up remote targets at the Work with Remote Targets section.


Select a target. This can be your local workstation or a remote target. If you use a remote target, see Register Remote Machine. Select a device from a target or a platform view:

  • Target View

    Use this view when the list with targets is short. Select a target from the list of machines registered in the DL Workbench.

  • Platform View

    Use this view when the list with targets is long. Determine the base platform based on Intel® processors: Core™, Xeon™, or Atom™. Within a platform, choose a combination and an accelerator. To group targets based on a platform, switch to the platform view and select a platform in the Base Platform drop-down list:


Targets with higher processor numbers within one platform go first. To sort from lowest to highest, click the arrow next to the Processor Numbers heading.
