HOWTO: Use GPU with Tensorflow and PyTorch

GPU Usage on Tensorflow

Environment Setup

To begin, you need to first create and new conda environment or use an already existing one. See HOWTO: Create  Python Environment for more details. In this example we are using python/3.6-conda5.2

Once you have a conda environment created and activated we will now install tensorflow-gpu into the environment (In this example we will be using version 2.4.1 of tensorflow-gpu:

conda install tensorflow-gpu=2.4.1
