WSL 2 GPU Support is Here

WSL 2 GPU Support is Here

Today we are excited to announce the general preview of Docker Desktop support for GPU with Docker in WSL2. There are over one and a half million users of Docker Desktop for Windows today and we saw in our roadmap how excited you all were for us to provide this support.

At Microsoft Build in the first half of the year, Microsoft demonstrated some awesome new capabilities and improvements that were coming to Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 including the ability to share the host machine’s GPU with WSL 2 processes. Then in June Craig Loewen from Microsoft announced that developers working on the Windows insider ring machines could now make use of GPU for the Linux workloads. This support for NVIDIA CUDA enabled developers and data scientists to use their local Windows machines for inner-loop development and experimentation. 

Last week, during the Docker Community All Hands, we announced the availability of a developer preview build of Docker Desktop for WSL 2 supporting GPU for our Developer Preview Program. We already have more than 1,000 who have joined us to help test preview builds of Docker Desktop for Windows (and Mac!). If you’re interested in joining the program for future releases you should do it now!
