# With 8 Tesla K40's and a batch size = 256, the following setup achieves
# precision@1 = 73.5% after 100 hours and 100K steps (20 epochs).

On a small hardware set up like yours, it will be difficult to achieve maximum performance. Generally speaking for CNN's, the best performance is with the largest batch sizes possible. This means that for CNN's the training procedure is often limited by the maximum batch size that can fit in GPU memory.
