Local Jupyter Notebook using a Nvidia GeForce GT 750M

Hi everyone,

I’ve just started the course and am u sure if I should use Google Colab or use a local instance of Jupiter Notebook on my 2014 MacBook Pro running MacOS 10.14 (Nvidia GeForce GT 750M).
Is this GPU powerful enough?



I had 940M (4 Gb) on my laptop. It worked fine for smaller networks, ResNet34 didn’t work due to low memory. I would suggest using Google Colab, it has much powerful GPU than your laptop and since you’ll be using a ResNet34 most of the time in the course. Plus getting PyTorch and Fastai to work on older GPUs is kind of hassle at times. Use Colab your models will train way faster plus it’s free.

Thanks Navid! Yes Colab seems to be the way to go. Cheers!
