Tensorflow was not using GPU

I used this AMI for 40 Hours.
and I found out why my models were very slowly trained :
tensorflow/core/common_runtime/gpu/ 406] Ignoring visible gpu device (device: 0, name: GRID K520, pci bus id: 0000:0 0:03.0, compute capability: 3.0) with Cuda compute capability 3.0. The minimum r equired Cuda capability is 3.5.

I used a GX2 instance for nothing.
Thanks a lot for the time lost

Not great

This AMI did not work as I expected. I found it easier to install Tensorflow for Python from binaries myself, or using the official Docker Tensorflow image. For context I run Tensorflow for Python on MacOS and Ubuntu. It sounds like the AMI works as expected for people using Conda?

Worked out of the box

Really easy to use. I was able to start developing a Keras/Tensorflow model in under 5 minutes. Multi-gpu training worked as expected.

Works very well

Works great. And if you have any trouble with it, there are plenty of resources available. Would recommend to anyone in need of a cloud solution for training deep learning models.

Works perfectly well!

Before I found this AMI I was wasting hours trying to set up a deep learning machine on my own. It was frustrating.
This AMI works perfectly well! There are lots of Anaconda environments prepared. Create a machine, activate the environment of choice. Go! Thanks AWS!

Ubuntu Deep Learning AMI - It works

So lots of dated reviews with these Deep Learning AMI's.

I can confirm as of Mon Nov 2017, this AMI has everything you need to stand up deep learning on a GPU in five minutes. Conda and all the goodies are installed.
