Does the CPU speed matter when training using GPU


I want to know the importance of the CPU speed when training using GPU.
For example, I have a GTX 1070 8GB, but my cpu is i5-4590.
Will my CPU speed negatively impact my GPU speed when I use transformers?
I cannot find any such analysis online. So, just want to ask.


I don’t believe there is a massive effect on cpu speed if you are training on your gpu. A faster cpu might help very slightly bit, but i dont think by a massive amount.
