This PyTorch release includes the following key features and enhancements.

Known Issues

  • Some mixed-precision models might encounter a crash due to a new FP16 overflow check added in PyTorch. We have an upstream fix submitted with PR 7382 and should be resolved in a future container.
  • There is a minor performance regression with the imagenet sample in /opt/pytorch/examples/imagnet for some network architectures on multi-gpu cases. This regression will be fixed in the next release.
