Selecting RAM for Deep Learning / Machine Learning

Since RAM doesn’t play an active role in the deep learning computation, the best strategy is to have just enough RAM for your GPUs to perform. If there’s not enough RAM the you’ll find your system ending up disk swapping and slowing down your performance. The rule of thumb is to match RAM size to the largest GPU’s RAM. For example, if you’re using an … Continue reading Selecting RAM for Deep Learning / Machine Learning

Selecting a GPU for Deep Learning

The GPU is the single most critical component when building a system for machine learning. It’s true that deep learning models can be run on a laptop, however the smaller your system the longer it will take to train your models. The first thing to consider is the amount of computation required. Knowing how intensive the task will be illuminates what kind of computational power … Continue reading Selecting a GPU for Deep Learning
