"200% faster means 300% faster"
"2x faster means 3x faster"

because when you say 200% faster or 2x faster, the "than original" is already implied.

it's an english problem, all the graphs and charts in the world can't help you

Is it possible that new engines could use mixed precision and benefit from the GPU like this? I'm pretty well versed in deep learning but know next to nothing when it comes to game engine development.

ok so when you say 2x faster,

2x100=200

is that value equal to 200% faster (300) ?

since 200=/=300.

2x faster means you are multiplying base value to 2. which will never give you 300.

What the problem here actually is -
Quote:
The meaning of faster changes when you shift from calculating percentage to multiplication ( x times of)

with percentage, faster means addition to base value.

with multiplication, it means x times of original.

I'll leave it now, since too much OT. and people really need to learn math. you can't mix-match things when going to multiplication from percentage. just ask your( not you) teacher. he will slap you.

Another classic example of failed math-

This was already explained to you in a previous post:
Quote:
What you and the other dude are saying is that 100 FPS is 1x faster than 100 FPS, which makes absolutely no sense. 100 FPS is 0x faster than 100 FPS (which means not faster at all).

http://www.overclock.net/t/1607470/tt-the-new-titan-x-is-up-to-200-faster-than-the-geforce-gtx-titan-x/20_20#post_25397761

0x faster than 100 FPS = 100 FPS
1x faster than 100 FPS = 200 FPS
2x faster than 100 FPS = 300 FPS

0% faster than 100 FPS = 100 FPS
100% faster than 100 FPS = 200 FPS
200% faster than 100 FPS = 300 FPS

Just convert decimal to a percentage or a percentage to a decimal...

Came for the interpretations of "200% faster"

I am entertained.

PS:
"200% faster" is 3x original.
"200% as fast" is 2x original.
