Pytorch is a powerful, easy-to-use Python library for scientific computing that allows users to easily develop neural network models. It also supports CUDA, which makes it possible to run deep learning models on GPUs. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to install Pytorch with CUDA on Windows 10.
Why Pytorch with CUDA?
Pytorch is an open source machine learning framework that is based on the Torch library. It is used for applications such as natural language processing and computer vision. The main difference between Pytorch and other machine learning frameworks is that it uses a dynamic computational graph. This means that the framework is flexible and can be used for a variety of tasks. Additionally, Pytorch offers support for both CPU and GPU computations. However, in order to use Pytorch with CUDA, you need to have a NVIDIA GPU with CUDA support.
1. Go to the Pytorch download page and select the appropriate version for your system. (https://pytorch.org/get-started/locally/)
2. Install Anaconda following the instructions on their website. We recommend installing the latest version. (https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/#download-section)
3. Select “Create” when prompted to create a new environment. Name your environment “pytorch” and select Python 3.7 as the version you want to use.
4. After your environment has been created, open Anaconda Navigator and select the Environments tab at the left of the screen.
5. Find your “pytorch” environment in the list and click on it to select it.
6. Click the play button to open a command prompt for your environment and type “activate pytorch” into the prompt without quotes to activate it.(You will know it worked if you see (pytorch) before your cursor in the next line.)
7 . In this new command prompt, type “conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=10.1 -c pytorch” again without quotes and press enter.(This will install Pytorch with CUDA support.)
Setting up Pytorch with CUDA
Pytorch is a powerful, yet easy to use framework for Deep Learning. It abstracts away a lot of the difficult details necessary for processing and training data. One of its main features is the ability to use CUDA to speed up computations.
This guide will show you how to install Pytorch with CUDA on Windows 10 in just a few steps.
Before we get started, you’ll need to make sure you have a few things:
-A compatible NVIDIA GPU (currently, only Pascal architecture GPUs are supported)
-The latest version of NVIDIA’s CUDA Toolkit
-The Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3
-An up-to-date version of pip
Testing your installation
Now that you have Pytorch and CUDA setup on your Windows 10 machine, the next step is to verify that everything is working properly. To test your installation, open up a new Anaconda prompt window and type the following command:
You should see something like this:
Python 3.6.5 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, Apr 26 2018, 08:42:37)
[GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Clang 4.0.1 (tags/RELEASE_401/final)] on darwin
Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
Installing Pytorch with CUDA on Windows 10 is a two-step process. The first step is to install the CUDA Toolkit, and the second step is to install Pytorch.
The CUDA Toolkit can be installed from the NVIDIA website. Be sure to select the version that matches your Windows version (32-bit or 64-bit). Once you have downloaded and installed the toolkit, you need to add the “CUDA_PATH” environment variable to your system. This can be done by opening the Control Panel, going to System, and then selecting “Advanced system settings”. On the Advanced tab, click on “Environment Variables” and then add a new variable called “CUDA_PATH” with the value of the path to your CUDA installation (e.g., C:Program FilesNVIDIA GPU Computing ToolkitCUDAv8.0).
The second step is to install Pytorch. This can be done using pip:
pip install torch
If you have a CUDA-capable GPU, you can also use pip to install Pytorch with CUDA support:
pip install torch – no-binary :all:
