Continued from the previous post.
With the graphs below you can compare calculation time and cost for a fixed amount of calculations in Floating Point Operations (FLOPs***). Use buttons above the graphs to set calculations amount and number of virtual or bare metal machines called “nodes” used for calculations.
Important notice: we assume that a task can be run on multiple computers WITHOUT any slowdown. This means that on N machines the task will finish N times faster. This could be true, for instance, in case of hyperparameters search when you have multiple independant tasks.
Graphs are not scaled when parameters change to make points movements clearly visible. To scale graphs manually use “Autoscale” and “Reset axes” buttons that appear in the top right corner of the graphs when you bring the mouse cursor over it (on tablet devices tap the graph).
