đź’ˇTensorFlow Tip, use .prefetch

đź’ˇ #TensorFlowTip
Use .prefetch to reduce your step time of training and extracting data

  • overlap the preprocessing and model execution
  • while the model executes training step n the input pipeline is reading the data for n+1 step
  • reduces the idle time for the GPU and CPU

See the speedup with .prefetch in this image.

Try it for yourself:
