Building a Deep Learning Developer Box

At Impressive Machines we are eagerly awaiting the release of Nvidia’s GTX 1080 graphics card. This new GPU is benchmarked at around 8 TFLOPs. Inspired by Nvidia’s developer box, we are in the process of putting together our own box for deep learning research. This is a four GPU PC with a six core Intel Core i7, an x99 motherboard, and 32GB RAM. We have been able to reduce the cost compared with purchasing such a box from Nvidia. We are going to be running Linux, cuDNN, and TensorFlow.
