NEW Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit 2021.4 Long-Term Support (LTS) RELEASE


Update to the latest Long-Term Support (LTS) release (recommended for developers taking solutions into production) 

  • This new 2021.4 Long-Term Support (LTS) Release provides bug fixes, two years of support and maintenance ensuring application stability while reducing the risks and costs associated with more frequent version upgrades. 
  • New Jupyter Notebooks, demos and support for additional public models to make development easier: 
  • Significant performance improvements on time-to-first-inference latency for both CPU and integrated GPU (iGPU), as a result of doing more initialization work in parallel among other optimizations.
  • FPGA Support is Ending: Intel® is transitioning to the next-generation programmable deep learning solution, Intel® FPGA AI Suite and will support OpenVINO™ toolkit when productized. 
  • 2020.3.2 LTS was the final release to include support for Intel® Vision Accelerator Design with an Intel® Arria® 10 FPGA and the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA.​  
  • Customer inquiries should be directed to your Intel® Programmable Solutions Group account manager or subscribe to get notified with the latest updates.
  • Public preview of new open-source component called OpenVINO™ integration with TensorFlow designed to enable TensorFlow developers to try OpenVINO with minimal code changes. ( 
  • Note: Adopting native OpenVINO API is recommended for highest level of performance, lowest memory footprint and complete hardware control.
