System Requirements

MONAI Version 1.1

Using the MONAI Toolkit Container requires the host system to have the following installed:

The MONAI Toolkit 1.1 is based on the NVIDIA PyTorch container release 23.03. Release 23.03 is based on CUDA 12.1.0, which requires NVIDIA Driver release 530 or later. However, if you are running on a data center GPU (for example, T4 or any other data center GPU), you can use NVIDIA driver release 450.51 (or later R450), 470.57 (or later R470), 510.47 (or later R510), 515.65 (or later R515), 525.85 (or later R525), or 530.30 (or later R530). The CUDA driver’s compatibility package only supports particular drivers. Thus, users should upgrade from all R418, R440, R460, and R520 drivers, which are not forward-compatible with CUDA 12.1.

For a full list of supported software and specific versions that come packaged with the frameworks based on the container image, see the Framework Containers Support Matrix and the NVIDIA Container Toolkit Documentation.

MONAI Toolkit has been validated on V100 and A100 GPUs, but should generally be supported on GPUs such as H100, A100, A40, A30, A10, V100, and more.

The following system configuration is recommended to achieve reasonable training and inference performance with MONAI Toolkit and supported models provided.

  • At least 12GB of GPU RAM and up to 32GB depending on the network or model you use

  • At least 32 GB of RAM - and the more RAM the better

  • At least 50 GB of SSD Disk Space
