   Thanks for the explanation. 
   
   Btw, is training in fp16 supposed to be ~2x faster than fp32 for a given 
batch size? Or is this only about reduced memory usage so we can use larger 
batch sizes. I have run the examples you had added for fp16 in image 
classification, and I see maybe +- 10-15% speed changes, nowhere close to 2x 
for a given batch size. Is this normal?
