Accelerate Machine Learning with Windows 11 and AMD
With the release of Windows 11, GPU accelerated machine learning (ML) training within the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is now broadly available across all DirectX® 12-capable GPUs from AMD. DirectML is a high-performance, hardware-accelerated DirectX 12 library for machine learning tasks used by data scientists, ML engineers, and developers.
"Microsoft has worked closely with AMD to support GPU-accelerated machine learning training within the Windows Subsystem for Linux, helping drive the democratization of machine learning by enabling the use of AMD hardware to power popular ML training workflows in Windows 11." -- Kam VedBrat, General Manager, Windows AI Platform, Microsoft
TensorFlow is a popular open-source platform for machine learning and is a leading framework for training of machine learning models. Thanks to Microsoft and AMD co-engineering efforts, TensorFlow has been coupled with DirectML to enable high-performance training and inferencing of machine learning models on AMD GPUs in Windows 11. Now a larger set of students and professionals can take advantage of GPU accelerated ML training on the AMD-powered Windows PC they already own.
