DAIR – GPU Driver Update

On June 8, 2021, we will be updating our infrastructure to a new NVIDIA GPU Driver which requires all instances using these GPU to be updated. Any GPU deployed after June 10, 2021 will get the new drivers during install and does not need to follow this process. 

Ubuntu / CentOS users:

Follow these steps:

  1. Download the new driver (version 450.89-452.87) from this link 
  2. Extract the zip file by using unzip. This can be done in the file browser or via the command line interface (CLI)
