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.

Please refer to logfile.

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 [url]Official Drivers | NVIDIA

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.
