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!
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.

Quadro GV100 with Volta architecture brings unprecedented capabilities in deep learning and simulation to designers, engineers and scientists.
As demand for deep learning continues to gain momentum, it’s already changing the way people work. Driving the next wave of advancement in deep learning-infused workflows is the NVIDIA Volta GPU architecture.
In his keynote address at the GPU Technology Conference 2018 in San Jose, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the new Volta-based Quadro GV100, and described how it transforms the workstation with real-time ray tracing and deep learning.
The Quadro GV100 addresses the growing demands of the world’s largest businesses — in such fields as automotive, architecture, engineering, entertainment and healthcare — to rapidly deploy deep learning-based research and development, accelerate deep learning-enhanced applications, enable photoreal VR and provide secure, anytime, anywhere access.
Bringing unprecedented capabilities in deep learning, rendering and simulation to designers, engineers and scientists, the new products allow professionals to design better products in a completely new way. GPU-accelerated techniques, like generative design, and the ability to conduct complex simulations faster mean businesses can explore more design choices, optimize their designs for performance and cost, and consequently bring ground breaking products to market faster.
