AWS Deep Learning AMI for Amazon EC2 P3

Just read this and thought of sharing with the community.

We’re pleased to announce a new set of AWS Deep Learning AMIs, which come pre-installed with deep learning frameworks optimized for the NVIDIA Volta V100 GPUs in the new Amazon EC2 P3 instance family.

The new P3 instances are perfect for deep learning, with eight NVIDIA Volta GPUs available in a single p3.16xlarge instance, which is capable of 125 trillion single-precision floating-point operations per second. This dramatically reduces the training time for sophisticated deep learning models, from days to just hours.
