Adobe embraced NVIDIA® Quadro® GPU acceleration with their Mercury Playback Engine in 2010. Essentially, Adobe redesigned their entire video rendering and playback engine to harness the NVIDIA CUDA parallel processing architecture. The result was a fluid, real-time editing experience for adding additional effects, multiple layers, or ultra-high-resolution content. Now, ten years later, Adobe continues to enhance GPU accelerated features across Adobe Creative Cloud and other essential Adobe applications, and they are committed to bringing RTX™ technology and AI to their vast and vibrant user community, all while leveraging NVIDIA RTX technology.
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!
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.
