    The good news: It's open-source
    The bad news: Uses PyTorch (therefore CUDA) and requires an NVIDIA card.

    NVIDIA - fooling the open-source community since 1993

      Sounds like ROCm backend for Pytorch is still not ready. So this is Nvidia only.

          Nvidia eats garbage lol

          AMD sucks

          Intel rocks but sucks too

            AFAIK PyTorch has been running on ROCm/HIP for quite a while now.

              I would be much more impressed if they opensourced their kernel driver for Linux graphics, much like AMD did with AMDGPU, and made it work with nouvou.

                I already know what the nvidia announcement will be.

                Nvidia: MORE Nvidia!! More us! You love us right?

                  Pytorch requires you to explicitly put your tensors on the GPU. The advantage to to such an action is that it speeds up training by ~50x in my experience (3900x vs. 2080). You can't hate on nvidia for developing a highly sophisticated API for parallel linear algebra. Do I wish it was open sourced? Yes. Would that reduce their profits? Absolutely.

                    ..well If I start to read Nvidia and OpenSource in an article it dissappoints me.
                    There are two schemes played by them:

                    1. Nvidia pretends it is foss but it is not if you look at the details.
                    2. the opensource community wants support but it is denied or crippled by Nvidia.
