I'm training a model of object detection with Tensorflow object detection API on windows 10 it looks around 3-4 times faster than ubuntu 18.04 and I don't know why I'm using same batch size, same PC and same dataset what could be the problem here ?

I'm using gtx 1050 4gb

the model is SSD mobilnet v2

windows: Step 100 per-step time 0.729s loss=0.841

ubunto: Step 100 per-step time 2.859s loss=0.841
