PNY Pro Tip #19 – Leverage Quadro Experience to share your work while working from home

Posted by PNY Pro on Thu, May 28, 2020 @ 04:30 PM

Working alongside your peers in an office environment promotes collaboration and catalyzes amazing results, particularly when you’ve focused so deeply on a particular issue or project that you miss other issues or potentially brilliant ideas hidden within your labors.  This is when multiple sets of eyes (and brains) are truly beneficial to your overall success.

Currently many of us are working from home and sharing ideas is a choke point unless you can easily share your screen to promote collaboration, gather inputs, and realize new ideas.  If you’re an NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics card owner, an exciting new tool, the NVIDIA Quadro Experience, is a brilliant new solution to recording and sharing the best ideas originating on your desktop with others under Microsoft Windows 10.

PNY Pro Tip #17 – NVIDIA Quadro GPUs Support up to 32 Displays with Frame Lock

Posted by PNY Pro on Thu, Apr 02, 2020 @ 04:00 PM

Modern GPUs have the ability to connect multiple displays to a single graphics card. Multi-screen environments increase the impact of visual imaging across commercial environments, and enhance enthusiast home gaming environments.

Technologies such as NVIDIA Surround and AMD Eyefinity offer the ability to bind multiple displays together in software to create a massive virtual display.  However, Surround and Eyefinity are both consumer-level technologies, which come with a multitude of limitations and compromises, such as support for only 3 to 6 monitors, which are not suitable for creative professional, interactive digital signage, live events, security, or industrial applications.

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!

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.

PNY Pro Tip #12: Benchmark for Deep Learning using NVIDIA GPU Cloud and Tensorflow (Part 1)

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, May 03, 2019 @ 10:31 AM

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.
