Do you have any plans to support GPU

Hi - we are starting to require GPU support for our next release. Any plans from your side to support it in the very near future?

I'm also very interested in this question. Taking into account the popularity of ML and Neural Networks, that are currently use GPU-based computation, this topic will be very actual.

My company can chime in here as well. We need to constantly train and evaluate Deep Neural Networks on 20-50 GPUs in parallel.

I think you'd need dedicated hardware for that ...

  • Nope, I helped set up our office's dev/testing server which runs VM instances much like DO does. However, our server has 4 CUDA compatible GPUs where the VM instances have access to the GPUs inside. If you're interested in how this works, look up IOMMU, and KVM/QEMU or KVM/LibVirt are two common ways of making VMs with nearly native access to GPUs and other PCI bus devices by using IOMMU compatible hardware.
