VRAM and vCPUs

vCPU: “A vCPU, or virtual CPU, is a unit of processing power that is allocated to a virtual machine (VM) or a piece of software running on a physical server. It is a way of sharing the resources of a physical CPU among multiple VMs in a cloud computing environment or a data center.”

VRAM: “VRAM, or Video RAM, is a type of specialized memory used by the graphics processing unit (GPU) in a computer system.”

When you’re setting up a cloud GPU instance, you’ll need to consider:

  • How much VRAM (GPU Ram) do you require - check this page
  • How many vCPUs do you need
  • How much system ram (non-GPU ram) do you require
