Microsoft has announced the availability of GPU Compute on the WSL 2.
WSL allows users to run native Linux command-line tools directly on Windows 10. Short for Windows Subsystem for Linux, WSL runs on over 3.5 million monthly active devices.
According to Microsoft, GPU Compute on WSL has always been the most-requested feature.
The preview of GPU Compute for WSL2 will initially be compatible with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) workflows. Plus, it will allow WSL users to operate Machine Learning training workloads directly on Windows. At this year’s Build 2020 developer conference, Microsoft revealed its plans to make the preview of GPU Compute available within WSL for Windows Insiders.
