    What is the explanation behind the significantly slow performance of Movidius Myriad compared to other devices in the Object Detection example?

    The explanation is mislabeling. While the demo says “Myriad”, the computation is really going to the Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS), which is a tiny, low-power USB device for specialty applications. The Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU contains, I’m told, the equivalent of eight NCSs. Machines with Myriad X are coming soon.

    We will be fixing the labels in demos to avoid this confusion.

    That was my first thought, too, that the Movidius device was performance limited (partly) due to the USB bus. Thanks for the clarification.

    Follow up questions:
    – By NCS, you mean the newer NCS2?
    – MyriadX is a single-chip device with 8 NCS-equivalent cores?
    – How many shades (compute units) per core, or what is total CU?
    – Any indication of its power consumption?
