Intel Arc GPUs use for Machine/Deep learning

I need complete steps to enable the extended GPU (Intel Arc A370) on the HP Spectra x360 laptop.

Currently, I'm executing the Deep learning models, that need GPU but the Intel Arc is not switching on while executing the algorithms. Please someone help me to set up GPUs for Deep learning algorithms execution.

Hello vishwanathchar

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Please answer the following:

·      Are you developing a tool or using an existing one? Please share the name and if possible, the official website.

·      Have you tried both OEM driver and Intel driver?

In order to use Arc GPU for machine learning, you must run your notebook with Keras in WSL 2.0 and setup it correctly by installing latest Windows drivers AND also correct Ubuntu packages from Intel AND also install correct variant of ITEX (Intel Extension for Keras) to your venv. Also because you have both Intel Xe and Arc in one computer, the name of device Xe might be gpu and Arc is xpu, so make sure you use xpu, othervise you might be training on that Xe card.

 

Install Intel Arc packages and drivers in Ubuntu:

https://github.com/intel/intel-extension-for-tensorflow/blob/main/docs/install/experimental/install_for_arc_gpu.md

 

More information and links here:

https://github.com/intel/intel-extension-for-tensorflow

 

Then try to train a large enough model to see wich device is utilized, as there is a problem that Arc GPUs are as slow as CPU for small models and only with large models it is faster compared to CPU. Also try to set keras device to xpu instead of gpu.

Hello,

Thank you for your patience. I apologize for the late response. 

Despite trying all possible methods to set up the links shared in the previous solution, I am still unable to do so. 

My opinion is that the Intel Graphics card may not support any Machine Learning projects, and even if it does, it may not be easy to set the GPU for AI projects.

It would be much appreciated if anyone could assist me with setting up GPUs for machine learning if there is any easy way to do this.
