Pro Tip #14 Benchmark for Deep Learning using NVIDIA GPU Cloud and Tensorflow (Part 3): Software Setup

Posted by PNY Pro on Tue, Jul 23, 2019 @ 01:46 PM

This is going to be a long blog post, but by the end, you will have an Ubuntu environment connected to the NVIDIA GPU Cloud platform, pulling a TensorFlow container and ready to start benchmarking GPU performance. 

Let's split this into four phases:

1) Install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and NVIDIA Graphics Driver
2) Install Docker CE and NVIDIA Docker v 2.0
3) Setup NVIDIA GPU Cloud and pull down GPU optimized docker containers
4) Run the TensorFlow benchmark

It's time to get started!

SCHARLY DESIGNER STUDIO Wins Big with Quadro GPU

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Jul 12, 2019 @ 05:28 PM

Ever wonder who wins the NVIDIA Quadro prizes from PNY and what they create with them?

Lionel Scharly, from SCHARLY DESIGNER STUDIO in New York, recently won the NVIDIA Quadro P4000 in our PNY/ANSYS joint webinar raffle back in May.  We followed up with Lionel to find out how the Quadro P4000 had improved his workflow and affected his Studio. Read his responses to our questions below:

How did you feel when you received notification that you had won the Quadro P4000 in the PNY Webinar Raffle?

It was surprising and came just at the time when we were looking to improve our Architectural Renderings and Virtual Reality solutions.

How NVIDIA Quadro GPUs Make a Difference to Design Workflows

Posted by PNY Pro on Tue, Jul 02, 2019 @ 01:00 PM

As a market leader in technology information for design engineering teams, Digital Engineering’s focus is on cutting-edge editorial content to help design engineering teams discover, evaluate and specify the technologies and processes that shorten the design cycle and enable optimal designs. It is not surprising that in the current June Issue there are three articles featuring NVIDIA Quadro GPUs and how they are making a difference to design workflows.

Supercharge Your SOLIDWORKS Workflow with Quadro RTX 4000

Posted by PNY Pro on Tue, Jun 25, 2019 @ 01:00 PM

Combining ground breaking technologies like real-time ray tracing, AI, advanced shading and simulation, all in in a single slot form factor, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 brings a whole new level of efficiency and productivity for your SOLIDWORKS design workflow.

The rendering performance of Quadro RTX combined with SOLIDWORKS Visualize makes it even easier to import models from SOLIDWORKS and support realistic, physically based materials, lighting and environments — all on a user-friendly interface.

With the Quadro RTX 4000 GPU, SOLIDWORKS 2019 delivers a major graphics performance boost. Taking advantage of real-time ray tracing and AI denoising users can now produce instant photorealistic images with SOLIDWORKS Visualize. Quadro RTX 4000 enables lightning fast view manipulation for large assemblies, dynamic view operations are dramatically faster, and users see full model detail and fewer dropped frames with no stutter or jitter when rotating large models.

Pro Tip #13: Benchmark for Deep Learning using NVIDIA GPU Cloud and Tensorflow (Part 2): Hardware Considerations

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Jun 21, 2019 @ 12:00 PM

In this blog post, I will go over the hardware considerations I used when putting together a system for benchmarking GPU performance for Deep Learning using Ubuntu 18.04, NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) and TensorFlow. Keep in mind that everyone will have different budgets and requirements for their own systems, which can and will result in a wide range of configurations. My particular list should serve only as a reference; your system will likely be different based on your own requirements.

Before we dive into the details, let’s go over what we are seeking to accomplish.  Our goal is to build a system to test the compute performance between different GPUs; therefore the GPU should be the only variable that changes between the different test runs.  To ensure the consistency of our tests, we will remove any potential bottlenecks that will negatively impact GPU performance.
