The Intel NCS 2 is powered by the latest Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU - the first VPU that features a neural compute engine for delivering additional performance. Deep Learning Neural Networks like Caffe, Tensor Flow or MXNet can be integrated with the OpenVINO toolkit on the NCS2. These machine learning frameworks are optimised for the entirely new Deep Neural Network (DNN) inferencing engine, delivering eight times the performance of the previous generation.
With a laptop and the Intel NCS2, developers can have AI and computer vision applications up and running quickly. The Intel NCS2 runs on a standard USB 3.0 port and requires no additional hardware, enabling users to convert and then deploy PC-trained models to a wide range of devices and without internet or cloud connectivity.
