[D] Training NNs with FP16 in Tensorflow

Is there anybody with experience using FP16 in Tensorflow/Keras? Regarding some blogs it is just available using a self-built version of Tensorflow as FP16 requires CUDA 10 [1]. Graphic card benchmark tests show significant improvements [2]. Would you already “rely” on this FP16 possibility? Do we know that it is always better/faster? I hope Tensorflow supports CUDA 10 soon, so no own-built version needs to be used.

What do you think about it?
