Public preview: Windows GPU support in AKS

Published date: March 18, 2024

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) now supports Windows GPU in public preview. 

This feature allows you to run GPU workloads on Windows nodepools and addresses the needs of those already on Windows, or interested in migrating to AKS with Windows nodes with a requirement for compute intensive resources. Some common GPU workloads include machine learning, video encoding, large simulations, and gaming.

To set up your nodepool, all you need to do is create a new nodepool with a supported GPU SKU. AKS will automatically install the NVIDIA driver and other required components.

This unblocks Windows GPU workloads and greatly reduces the burden on you to manually install the necessary components.
