Ubuntu 19.04 will be released soon so I decided to see if CUDA 10.1 could be installed on it. Yes, it can and it seems to work fine. In this post I walk through the install and show that docker and nvidia-docker also work. I ran TensorFlow 2.0- alpha on Ubuntu 19.04 beta.

Argonne chemists use artificial neural networks to read molecular spectra. They enlisted the help of Puget Systems to build them a workstation that could be used to train convolutional neural networks.
During a recent computer component purchase, I learned that purchasing isn't just about acquiring a product. You are creating relationships. Even if they may be micro-relationships, they are relationships all the same. So you just have to determine which type you wish to have.
Depending on the number of GPU-accelerated effects you use, a higher-end GPU can give you a nice performance boost in Premiere Pro. But what will give you the best performance for your dollar? An NVIDIA GeForce RTX video card, or one of AMD's Radeon cards?
Have you tried updating Windows 10 and received an error after a restart? This article will guide you through the process of resolving the Windows update error: 0x80246008
If you are experiencing issues with your system and are unsure of the cause, an easy way to eliminate software culprits is to perform a Diagnostic startup. Many issues can be traced using the Diagnostic startup, this may be one of the most useful steps when troubleshooting a system.
NVIDIA recently made a new type of driver available for their GeForce and Titan series video cards, which is aimed specifically at content creators. These new "Creator Ready" drivers can be selected when downloading drivers from the NVIDIA or GeForce websites, and can also be picked for future driver updates in GeForce Experience. Read on for info on how to find these drivers for your workstations.
Recently, NVIDIA has announced their new "Creator Ready Driver program" which is intended to give the best performance and reliability when working with creative applications. But is the new Creator Ready driver actually faster in Premiere Pro and Photoshop?
In this 45 minute webinar, Matt Bach will go over all the individual parts that go into a workstation, explaining what each does and how Premiere Pro uses them. We will help you separate fact from fiction and make you aware of "marketing buzzwords" that are either misleading or flat-out lies.
Despite how popular SOLIDWORKS is, there is a lot of outdated and simply inaccurate information on the web regarding what video card you should use. This is especially true for SW 2019, because it adds a new mode that changes how the video card is utilized when displaying parts and assemblies. This feature is still in beta, and not yet ready for production use, but we rounded up the full Quadro RTX line of video cards to see how they perform at both 1080p and 4K resolutions.
If you are in production environment where you need maximum reliability or do a heavy amount of noise reduction, there is no replacement for workstation-class cards like those in the NVIDIA Quadro line. But exactly how well do the new Quadro RTX models perform in DaVinci Resolve?
OctaneRender is a GPU-based rendering engine, utilizing the CUDA programming language on NVIDIA-based graphics cards. The upcoming 2019 version is adding support for the dedicated ray-tracing hardware in NVIDIA's RTX series of video cards, and a preview of the OctaneBench tool was released recently to show a sneak peek at what we can expect from this technology. We rounded up the whole GeForce RTX card line - along with the Titan RTX - to see how they compare to each other and how much of a boost RTX tech can provide.

TensorFlow Performance with 1-4 GPUs -- RTX Titan, 2080Ti, 2080, 2070, GTX 1660Ti, 1070, 1080Ti, and Titan V
I have updated my TensorFlow performance testing. This post contains up-to-date versions of all of my testing software and includes results for 1 to 4 RTX and GTX GPU's. It gives a good comparative overview of most of the GPU's that are useful in a workstation intended for machine learning and AI development work.
In 2019, our continued goal is to get out there where our customers are to learn more about them, learn more about their workflow. What better place than the National Association of Broadcasters? NAB is the ultimate event for media, entertainment and technology professionals looking for new and innovative ways to create, manage, and deliver on any platform.
In this video, School of Motion teamed up with Puget Systems and Adobe to develop the ultimate After Effects computer. School of Motion wanted to tackle this subject, but instead of simply figuring out a way to make After Effects run faster the team pondered a far more interesting question, can we build the worlds fastest After Effects computer?
The Radeon VII is a very interesting card for DaVinci Resolve due to its 16GB of VRAM which is twice what you would get from a similarly priced NVIDIA GPU. But is it able to keep up in terms of raw performance?
While After Effects is starting to utilize the GPU more and more, it currently is almost always limited by the performance of your CPU. So while AMD's Radeon VII is an extremely robust card with twice the VRAM as a comparably priced NVIDIA GeForce card, will Ae actually be able to take advantage of its power?
