RTX 3090 Compatibility


I’ve seen many posts online from last year about this but I’m still to find a solution that works for me.

I get this message: “GeForce RTX 3090 with CUDA capability sm_86 is not compatible with the current PyTorch installation”.

Is there a solution now or a planned release date for a version with compatibility? I’ve tried most answers from other posts with no avail.

Thanks in advance,

You would have to install the PyTorch binaries with the CUDA11 runtime from here or alternatively you could also build form source.


Thanks. It’s working.

You can use ‘lambda stack’ instead of installation pytorch from source.
Fast and easy:

I did so via conda (cudatoolkit=11.3) and yet torch.version.cuda is 10.2.

In that case your install command might either have been wrong or you might have different PyTorch versions installed in the same environment. Create a new virtual environment and reinstall PyTorch with the CUDA 11 runtime.
