As of late 2020, Nvidia have the highest performing consumer GPUs and the best support for GPU compute development. GPU compute development includes both direct GPU programming with Nvidia’s CUDA tools and machine learning applications that use ML frameworks such as Tensorflow and PyTorch. However, Nvidia release their Linux drivers under a proprietary license, rather than open sourcing the drivers and having them included directly in the Linux kernel. There are open source drivers for Nvidia hardware from the Nouveau project, but these don’t support computing use of the GPU. Read more...
