PNY will showcase the latest in GPU acceleration for data science, data visualization and big data analytics with its NVIDIA-powered Data Science Workstation and associated solutions at Converge which runs October 21-23, 2019 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
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.

As a PC enthusiast, I love pitting hardware solutions against each other to determine their relative performance when completing a particular task. This process is also known as “Benchmarking.” Benchmarking results are usually considered the best tool to evaluate the merits of competing systems when making a purchase decision.
In this 3-part blog series, we’ll discuss how to build a system, with an emphasis on benchmarking GPU performance for Deep Learning using Ubuntu 18.04, NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) and TensorFlow.

The Quadro RTX 4000 is already making an impression on the tech community with positive results and projected success. Print and web publications with years of industry involvement such as Develop 3D and Techgage are devoted to providing professionals the technical information they need. They, and others, are committed to their readership and focus on product and workflow enhancements, such as the Quadro RTX 4000, that improve productivity and creativity.
“Compared to previous generations, there’s more than immediately meets the eye with Quadro RTX. The architecture bump from Pascal to Turing in itself represents a big boost in performance (and efficiency), but the addition of Tensor and RT cores helps set RTX apart from the rest of the market." - Rob Williams, Techgage

Excitement and anticipation were everywhere at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2019. GTC’s speaker roster reads like a who’s who in AI and deep learning. The expectation was high for NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang to announce new industry-disruptive technologies during his keynote address. Last year it was the launch of NVIDIA RTX real-time ray tracing technology. This year Jensen took it a step further with the introduction of NVIDIA- RTX-powered Data Science Workstations and expanded NVIDIA RTX Server offerings.
