Fly GPUs

Fly.io has GPUs! If you have workloads that would benefit from GPU acceleration, Fly GPU Machines may be for you.

What can I use Fly GPUs for?

Three models of GPU are available: NVIDIA A100 40G PCIe, A100 80G SXM, and L40S.

A100 units are all about the tensor cores, and are positioned for inference, model training, and intensive high-precision computation tasks like scientific simulations. As their names suggest, they have 40GB and 80GB of GPU memory. (A100 datasheet)

The L40S cards are all-rounders; they’ve got tensor cores, RT cores, and NVENC/NVDEC, and have 48GB of GPU RAM. Choose the L40S to accelerate graphics or video workloads, as well as for inference. (L40S datasheet)

Right now each Fly GPU Machine uses a single full GPU. A single GPU is well suited to rendering, encoding/decoding, inference, and a smidgen of fine tuning. Training large models from scratch requires much, much beefier resources.
