LLM Comparison Through TGI Benchmark Using SaladCloud

LLM comparison benchmark with text generation inference on Salad GPU cloud

In the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Text Generation Inference (TGI) has become a vital toolkit for deploying and serving Large Language Models (LLMs). TGI enables efficient and scalable text generation with popular open-source LLMs, including Llama, Falcon, StarCoder, BLOOM, GPT-NeoX, and Mistral. This SaladCloud benchmark dives deep into this technology, with a LLM comparison […]

YOLOv8 Benchmark: Object Detection on Salad’s GPUs (73% Cheaper Than Azure)


What is YOLOv8? In the fast-evolving world of AI, object detection has made remarkable strides, epitomized by YOLOv8. YOLO (You Only Look Once) is an object detection and image segmentation model launched in 2015 and YOLOv8s is the latest version, developed by Ultralytics. The algorithm is not just about recognizing objects; it’s about doing so […]

Bark Benchmark: Reading 144K Recipes with Text-to-Speech on SaladCloud

BARK Benchmark - Text-to-speech-gpu - SaladCloud

Speech Synthesis with suno-ai/bark When you think of speech synthesis, you might think of a very robotic sounding voice, like this one from 1979. Maybe you think of more modern voice assistants, like Siri or the Google Assistant. While these are certainly improvements over what we had in the 1970s, they still wouldn’t be mistaken […]
