Yes, it is as crazy as it sounds, but why not? First, you need to go to Windows features: And enable Windows Subsystem for Linux Then go to Microsoft Store and choose linux you want to run: And then voila, you are running Ubuntu on Windows from command line: So I tested out Wide Open Thoughts and POPC examples python . In first case, GPU could not be found, and in second case graphs did not show up. But based on news, it should be coming [ GUI app support and GPU hardware acceleration ].
NVIDIA was cooking Their new A100 has more cores ( 6912 FP32 CUDA ), more memory (40GB of HBM2 memory) and takes more power than usual GPUs (400W). AMD cooked up new version of Radeon VII called Radeon PRO VII , with same amount of cores (3840), same size of memory (16GB HBM2) and less needed power (down to 250W ). Seems like we are not going to have again 8k cores on one GPU ( old Radeon Pro Duo ) anytime soon. But supposedly, Intel is cooking as well .
