Only getting 10EG/s and GPU showing only 1% util in nvidia-smi

Post by Exthenia »

Hey,

I have seen the FAQ section on low GPU utilization but my EG/s seems fairly low and CPU is booking out at 100% all the time I've read this is normal but other people seem to be getting a bit more GPU util than me in nvidia-smi. Is 10EG/s a normal speed for training?

PS: I also can't see anything in the processes relating to faceswap or python

Thanks :)

My Specs:
CPU: i7-10700F CPU @ 2.90GHz
16.0 GB RAM
GPU: GTX 1050ti

nvidia-smi:

The speed is hard to say without knowing the model.

If that Nvidia-SMI screengrab is from when Faceswap is running, then it would suggest your GPU is not being used. Please post the output of (from GUI) help > output system info

My word is final
