Support for hardware acceleration within the WSL development environment appeared in the preliminary version of the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition driver
Yesterday, AMD announced support for a machine-accelerated machine learning (MO) project in Windows 10. This will allow users of AMD-based systems, including software developers and those who study programming, to participate in machine learning projects and improve their skills on the same PC. which they use to solve daily tasks.
AMD announces support for machine learning hardware acceleration project in Windows 10
Previously, the Microsoft DirectML application program interface (API) allowed the use of GPU acceleration only for outputting machine learning data to GPUs supporting DirectX 12, such as AMD Radeon and Radeon Pro. Now, machine learning will be able to use hardware acceleration in Windows 10, and Microsoft expects to integrate DirectML with the most commonly used machine learning tools — libraries and frameworks. Windows Insider Program members already have the opportunity to evaluate this innovation using the TensorFlow package with the DirectML backend and TensorFlow training models.
To support Microsoft’s efforts, AMD has released a preview version of the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition driver that supports hardware acceleration within the WSL development environment. The driver is suitable for AMD Radeon, Radeon Pro cards, Ryzen, and Ryzen PRO processors with integrated Radeon Vega GPUs, as well as Ryzen and Ryzen PRO mobile processors with integrated Radeon Vega GPUs.
