NVIDIA DIGITS with Caffe - Performance on Pascal multi-GPU

Written on December 23, 2016 by Dr Donald Kinghorn

NVIDIA's Pascal GPU's have twice the computational performance of the last generation. A great use for this compute capability is for training deep neural networks. We have tested NVIDIA DIGITS 4 with Caffe on 1 to 4 Titan X and GTX 1070 cards. Training was for classification of a million image data set from ImageNet. Read on to see how it went.

Install Ubuntu 16.04 or 14.04 and CUDA 8 and 7.5 for NVIDIA Pascal GPU

Written on August 29, 2016 by Dr Donald Kinghorn

You got your new wonderful NVIDIA Pascal GPU ... maybe a GTX 1080, 1070, or Titan X(P) ... And, you want to setup a CUDA environment for some dev work or maybe try some "machine learning" code with your new card. What are you going to do? At the time of this writing CUDA 8 is still in RC and the deb and rpm packages have drivers that don't work with Pascal. I'll walk through the tricks you need to do a manual setup of CUDA 7.5 and 8.0 on top of Ubuntu 16.04 or 14.04 that will work with the new Pascal based GPU's

NVIDIA Titan GPUs (3 generations) - CUDA 8 rc performance on Ubuntu 16.04

Written on August 12, 2016 by Dr Donald Kinghorn

I have a Titan Black, Titan X (Maxwell) and a new Titan X (Pascal) in a system for a quick CUDA performance test. Install is on Ubuntu 16.04 with CUDA 8.0rc. We'll look at nbody from the CUDA samples code and NAMD Molecular Dynamics. It is stunning to see how much the CUDA performance has increased on these wonderful GPU's in just 3 years.
