Cannot install torch-GPU in my torch installation

Hi I am trying to install new graphic card to PC but struggling to do it

Here is the graphic card NVIDIA Geforce Xp


seems well recognized in the PC

in NVIDIA site it says its compute capability is 6.1
from official (CUDA GPUs - Compute Capability | NVIDIA Developer)

so in the below site, I have downloaded CUDA toolkit 10.0
from official (CUDA Toolkit Archive | NVIDIA Developer)
with compatible Visual Studio 2017

and download cuDNN 7.3.0 to meet CUDA toolkit version
from official
unzip it into CUDA\v10.0

and added following paths in system env variables
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v10.0\bin
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v10.0\extras\CUPTI\libx64
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v10.0\include

then I have checked it on command prompt

then I installed anaconda

and make enviroment for Deep learning setting

conda create --name conda-forge python=3.6
conda activate conda-forge

From offical pytorech site

for torch install CUDA 10.0, the command is

conda install pytorch==1.2.0 torchvision==0.4.0 cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch

I have used that code but got below error message

PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:

  - torchvision==0.4.0
  - pytorch==1.2.0

Current channels:


To search for alternate channels that may provide the conda package you're
looking for, navigate to

and use the search bar at the top of the page.

so I used the below code

conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch

but it only uses CPU only

I have tested it in python environment and rebooted and tested… nothing works…

I am doing this for a day and this driving me so crazy please help me

Neither your locally installed CUDA toolkit nor cuDNN will be used unless you build from source or a custom CUDA extension.
The PyTorch binaries ship with their own CUDA dependencies so try to install a newer release with a newer CUDA runtime by selecting the desired setup from our website.

tried 11.2 but not work…

The current releases do not ship with CUDA 11.2 so it’s unclear what exactly you have installed and what exactly does not work.

My GPU NVIDIA GeForce Tiatan Xp can support cuda version range of CUDA 10.0 ~ 11.2 so I have installed 10.0, 11.2

for 10.0 as the pytorch offical says

# CUDA 10.0
conda install pytorch==1.2.0 torchvision==0.4.0 cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch

so I typed it but got the following message

PackagesNotFoundError: The following packages are not available from current channels:

  • pytorch==1.2.0
  • torchvision==0.4.0

using the below

# CUDA 10.0
conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch

It works but the torch, torchvision only install CPU version not GPU version

same for the CUDA 11.2

That’s not the case and your TitanXP with compute capability 6.1 is still supported in the latest CUDA 12 release. I’m unsure where you have seen this information about the limited support.

Install the latest release as already mentioned and it will work.
