Where to follow/test upcoming CuDNN 8.0.0?

I’ve read here and there that CuDNN 8.0.0 will break redist dlls in smaller chunks for training and inference. This is actually the major concern I have working with CuDNN right now: having to distribute a huge dll just for inference.
I’ve also noticed the v8.0.0 Early Access seems to have been removed from release notes. Is there a dedicated program I would need to apply to in order to test this EA?
Thanks in advance!

cuDNN 8.0.0 (Developer Preview) is right now just part of Jetson 4.4 DP release.

Please stay tuned for cuDNN release announcement for latest updates.

Thanks

Thank you. So I get there is nothing we can beta test short term on windows?

At least I am not aware of any such beta test release.
Will request you to stay tuned for any cuDNN release announcement.

Thanks

@SunilJB Now that 8.0.0 and 8.0.1 have been released, is there an official explanation why the cuda 10.2 release of cudnn8 is linux only? Does Windows users have to upgrade to cuda 11?

Since it’s a preview release, it has limited OS support builds. In order to user preview build on Windows OS you have to use CUDA 11.

Thanks
