Setup TensorFlow with GPU support on Windows

TensorFlow with GPU support brings higher speed for computation than CPU-only. But, you need some additional settings especially for CUDA. First of all, we need to follow the guideline from https://www.tensorflow.org/install/install_windows. TensorFlow on Windows currently only has Python 3 support, I suggest to use python 3.5.3 or below. Then, install CUDA 8.0 and download cuDNN v6.0.

Then, move the files from cuDNN v6.0 that you already download to the path where you installed CUDA 8.0, like "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v8.0", following the steps as below:

cudnn-8.0-windows10-x64-v6.0\cuda\bin\cudnn64_6.dll ---------------- CUDA\v8.0\bin
cudnn-8.0-windows10-x64-v6.0\cuda\include\cudnn.h ---------------------- CUDA\v8.0\include
cudnn-8.0-windows10-x64-v6.0\cuda\lib\x64\cudnn.lib --------------------- CUDA\v8.0\lib\x64

Don't need to add the folder path of cudnn-8.0-windows10-x64-v6.0 to your %PATH%. Now, we can start to confirm our installation is …
