RealSR-NCNN

RealSR-NCNN is an NCNN neural network implementation of the RealSR project and accelerated using the Vulkan API. RealSR is the Real-World Super Resolution via Kernel Estimation and Noise Injection. NCNN is a high performance neural network inference framework optimized for mobile and other platforms developed by Tencent. This test profile times how long it takes to increase the resolution of a sample image by a scale of 4x with Vulkan.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark realsr-ncnn.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

RealSR-NCNN 20200818

Scale: 4x - TAA: No

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 988 public results since 24 September 2020 with the latest data as of 4 September 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (RealSR-NCNN 20200818 - Scale: 4x - TAA: No) has an average run-time of 3 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
