Performance for NCS sticks not what I expected NCS 2 slower?

New Contributor I
I have been using the NCS 1 compute stick for some time now. I installed OpenVino version 2018 4.420 on my older i5 Ivy Bride 1.7ghz 6GB DDR3 memory laptop. The Demo Security Barrier Camera with no NCS sticks ran at 29ms ~ 34fps The vehicle detection time was 11.8 ms So I was looking forward to even better performance and much to my shock with one NCS2 and one NCS1 I got ~10 fps. Unbelievable, the CPU only version ran 300% faster. Total time was 95.57ms ~ 10fps The total vehicle detection time was 81.86 ms With just the NCS 1 plugged in the performance was a bit worse 107.28ms ~ 9fps Vehicle detection time was better 78.9ms ~ 12fps With just the NCS 2 plugged in the performance was a bit worse 107.8ms ~ 9fps Vehicle detection time was better 86.29ms ~ 11.7fps Proving newer is not always better? I am totally perplexed by the results. I expected the NCS 2 to outperform the NCS 1 because of the additional shave cores intead the NCS 2 performed worse. Intel any explanations? And why is my OLD i5 cpu performing 800% better with vehicle detection. Is there something wrong with the demo code and MYRIAD?

Look at the videos on youtube, it seem that you are doing somehting wrong. People manage it to run it properly I am waiting for mine and i payed for 2 so i hope you are wrong :)
