Built a deep learning machine for a friend. Now wishing I had the money to build an identical one for myself.
The unique thing about this one is that he only uses foss so cuda was out so I ended up doing an all amd build.
I have to say this vega56 is not too shabby for $300 and installing everything was much less frustrating than using nvidia.
Wait, you can do deep learning with AMD GPU?
@dpwiz I wrote up some stuff on my plume instance https://blog.ksteimel.duckdns.org/~/BenchmarkingResearchTools/building-an-amd-deep-learning-machine-part-3
