Intel® Extension for Transformers Quantized Text Embeddings

Load quantized BGE embedding models generated by Intel® Extension for Transformers (ITREX) and use ITREX Neural Engine, a high-performance NLP backend, to accelerate the inference of models without compromising accuracy.

Refer to our blog of Efficient Natural Language Embedding Models with Intel Extension for Transformers and BGE optimization example for more details.
