Whisper.cpp

Whisper.cpp is a port of OpenAI's Whisper model in C/C++. Whisper.cpp is developed by Georgi Gerganov for transcribing WAV audio files to text / speech recognition. Whisper.cpp supports ARM NEON, x86 AVX, and other advanced CPU features.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Whisper.cpp 1.6.2

Model: ggml-base.en - Input: 2016 State of the Union

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 55 public results since 2 June 2024 with the latest data as of 18 June 2024.

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 (Whisper.cpp 1.6.2 - Model: ggml-base.en - Input: 2016 State of the Union) has an average run-time of 20 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.
