Xilinx U250 Card TOPs can be converted to CPU's FLOPs?

Jump to solution

I'm using Xilinx U250 Card and it's INT8 TOPs (peak) (Trillion Operations Per Second) is 33.3 in data sheet specifications.

It can be converted to CPU's FLOPs(Trillion Floating-point Operations Per Second)?

I wanna conversion/comparison between CPU and FPGA computing power.

Hi @SEOKHYUNRYU ,

Comparing a CPU (or GPU) to an FPGA goes beyond comparing data sheet specifications as an FPGA is capable of being extremely customizable for a specific application.

A good white paper on comparing FPGAs and GPUs is found here (some aspects of this apply to CPUs as well):
https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/white_papers/wp492-compute-intensive-sys.pdf

Another white paper that gives comparisons between FPGAs, GPUs, and CPUs based on specific tasks is found here:

~John
