If we sell a product with PyTorch and it's dependencies, do we need to make our code GPL?

Hi! This question is not related to programming. I can’t get any clear answer from anywhere else so I’m trying my luck here.

I’m trying to figure out if we can sell a hardware product with PyTorch and it’s dependencies pre-installed without making our code GPL. Although PyTorch itself is not GPL, some packages PyTorch depends on are under GPL. And since we are selling a proprietary device (instead of a service), we are required to make our code GPL if we are using GPL software. Does anyone know if this is accurate? If so, is there anyway to get around it? How do all the hardware startups deal with this matter?
