How to run tensorflow-gpu testing for NV 2080 Super card?

Hi All,
At the same platform, the Nvidia 2080 Super card can’t run tensorflow-GPU, but the Nvidia 2080Ti can do.

On the Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I have been successfully established test environment for tensorflow-gpu with NV2080 Super card (install + cudnn-10.0-linux-x64-v7.4.2.24 + Anaconda3-5.2.0-Linux-x86_64 + tensorflow-gpu1.13.1 ),but running “python --num_gpus=1 --batch_size=64 --model=resnet50 --variable_update=independent --local_parameter_device=gpu”, the system occurred error.The model=inception3 / alexnet / vgg16 has the same issue. If insert 2080Ti on this platform, it can successfully running.

I have tried on the Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS, it has the same issue.

You’ll need a newer driver for 2080 Super

The 410.48 driver bundled with


won’t work with 2080 super.

Install the latest driver for 2080 super from

Then run the installer, but select “no” when prompted for driver install.

That setup should work on either card.

Hi Robert,

After installed the latest driver ( under Ubuntu 18.04.1 or Ubuntu 16.04.4, but the tensorflow-gpu still don’t run for 2080 Super.

Test environments as below:

  1. Ubuntu 18.04.1 + + cudnn-10.0-linux-x64-v7.4.2.24 + Anaconda3-5.2.0-Linux-x86_64 + tensorflow-gpu1.13.1

  2. Ubuntu 16.04.4 + + cudnn-10.0-linux-x64-v7.4.2.24 + Anaconda3-5.2.0-Linux-x86_64 + tensorflow-gpu1.13.1

  3. Ubuntu 16.04.4 + + cudnn-9.0-linux-x64-v7 + Anaconda3-5.2.0-Linux-x86_64 + tensorflow-gpu1.14.0

In addition, I have tried to change the NV driver version, but it’s still not valid.(eg: / / / )

The CUDA install in 2080Superlog_18.04.txt looks fine now. You may need to use the latest cudnn version.
