guidance on using multiple PC's simultaneously towards the same project (poor mans render farm)

Post by gotomgo »

I have multiple Windows 10 machines, each with a decent video card. I'd like to have them all working together on the same training session.

ChatGPT recommended a few different options:

  • TensorFlow's Distributed Training

  • PyTorch's Distributed Data Parallel (DDP)

  • Horovod

  • Ray's RaySGD

Was hoping to see if anyone else had experience doing this, or if there was a recommended workflow? Any advice/tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated.

This is not currently implemented in Faceswap, so you would need to go into the code.

It is something I may look at in the future though

My word is final
