Deep Learning Profiler 20.12 Release Notes
DLProf release for 20.12, available in the NVIDIA TensorFlow 1.x, TensorFlow 2.x, and PyTorch NGC containers, and as a Python Wheel on the NVIDIA PY Index.
Release 20.12 is based on NVIDIA CUDA 11.1.1, which requires NVIDIA Driver release 455 or later. However, if you are running on Tesla (for example, T4 or any other Tesla board), you may use NVIDIA driver release 418.xx, 440.30, or 450.xx. The CUDA driver's compatibility package only supports particular drivers. For a complete list of supported drivers, see the CUDA Application Compatibility topic. For more information, see CUDA Compatibility and Upgrades.
