For N-series VM specs, storage capacities, and disk details, see GPU Linux VM sizes.
NVIDIA CUDA drivers for NC, NCv2, NCv3, and ND-series VMs (optional for NV-series) are supported only on the Linux distributions listed in the following table.
To take advantage of the GPU capabilities of Azure N-series VMs running Linux, NVIDIA GPU drivers must be installed.
The NVIDIA GPU Driver Extension installs appropriate NVIDIA CUDA or GRID drivers on an N-series VM.
In addition to updating your Windows 7, XP and Vista drivers, the software will also download and update your drivers for external devices such as scanners, printers, cameras, hard drives, DVD, video, graphics, USB, wireless and other hardware devices.
Manual driver setup information is also available for Windows VMs.
For more information, see the CUDA Installation Guide.
To install CUDA drivers, make an SSH connection to each VM.
Note that GPU-Util shows 0% unless you are currently running a GPU workload on the VM.
Your driver version and GPU details may be different from the ones shown.
