Optimizing deep learning model performance is computationally expensive, so I was pleased to discover that there are TensorFlow builds which are optimized for CPU systems (like my MacBook Pro). The benchmarks are impressive, and while this will likely not be the option for everyone, it is worth considering if your cloud setup is primarily using Xeon CPUs rather than GPUs.
