Pytorch Direct ML for non-Nvidia GPUs on Windows

Found this in my social media feed today but haven’t tried it yet:

Theoretically, you’ll be able to use the GPU on Windows with DirectX12 by selecting this backend. This may open up more ways to use Fastai on machines without Nvidia GPUs though Mac users are still SOL unless they dual boot windows.

Hello, I’m new here, this is the only thread discussing fastai on pytorch-directml on the internet.
Did you actually give it a try? I’m just starting the fastai course and I would like to test it locally on my Radeon 5700 XT GPU. This could be the only way to do it but I don’t know the library enough yet to test it myself.

Thanks for sharing this info this is useful keep it up.
