Measuring inference performance involves many variables and is extremely use-case and application dependent. Below are four parameters for measurements, which are key elements to consider for a successful deep learning inference application:
Measures the number of inferences delivered within a latency threshold (for example, number of Frames Per Second - FPS). When deploying a system with deep learning inference, select the throughput that delivers the best trade-off between latency and power for the price and performance that meets your requirements.
While throughput is important, what is more critical in edge AI deployments is the performance efficiency or performance-per-cost. Application performance in throughput per dollar of system cost is the best measure of value. The value KPI is calculated as “Throughput measured as inferences per second / price of inference engine”. This means for a 2 socket system 2x the price of a CPU is used. Prices are as per date of benchmarking and sources can be found as links in the Hardware Platforms (PDF) description below.
System power is a key consideration from the edge to the data center. When selecting deep learning solutions, power efficiency (throughput/watt) is a critical factor to consider. Intel designs provide excellent power efficiency for running deep learning workloads. The efficiency KPI is calculated as “Throughput measured as inferences per second / TDP of inference engine”. This means for a 2 socket system 2x the power dissipation (TDP) of a CPU is used. TDP-values are as per date of benchmarking and sources can be found as links in the Hardware Platforms (PDF) description below.
This measures the synchronous execution of inference requests and is reported in milliseconds. Each inference request (for example: preprocess, infer, postprocess) is allowed to complete before the next is started. This performance metric is relevant in usage scenarios where a single image input needs to be acted upon as soon as possible. An example would be the healthcare sector where medical personnel only request analysis of a single ultra sound scanning image or in real-time or near real-time applications for example an industrial robot’s response to actions in its environment or obstacle avoidance for autonomous vehicles.

This benchmark setup includes a single machine on which both the benchmark application and the OpenVINO™ installation reside. The presented performance benchmark numbers are based on the release 2022.3 of the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit. The benchmark application loads the OpenVINO™ Runtime and executes inferences on the specified hardware (CPU, GPU or GNA). It measures the time spent on actual inference (excluding any pre or post processing) and then reports on the inferences per second (or Frames Per Second).
Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit performance benchmark numbers are based on release 2022.3.
