CUDA is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by NVIDIA for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs). With CUDA, developers can dramatically speed up computing applications by harnessing the power of GPUs.

The CUDA Toolkit from NVIDIA provides everything you need to develop GPU-accelerated applications. The CUDA Toolkit includes GPU-accelerated libraries, a compiler, development tools and the CUDA runtime.

The CUDA container images provide an easy-to-use distribution for CUDA supported platforms and architectures.

End User License Agreements

The images are governed by the following NVIDIA End User License Agreements. By pulling and using the CUDA images, you accept the terms and conditions of these licenses. Since the images may include components licensed under open-source licenses such as GPL, the sources for these components are archived here.

For more information on CUDA, including the release notes, programming model, APIs and developer tools, visit the CUDA documentation site.


CUDA Container Support Policy

CUDA image container tags have a lifetime. The tags will be deleted Six Months after the last supported "Tesla Recommended Driver" has gone end-of-life OR a newer update release has been made for the same CUDA version.

Please see CUDA Container Support Policy for more information.

Breaking changes are announced on Gitlab Issue #209.

Cuda Repo Signing Key has Changed!

This may present itself as the following errors.


Reading package lists... Done
W: GPG error:  InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A4B469963BF863CC
W: The repository '  InRelease' is not signed.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.

Multi-arch image manifests are now LIVE for all supported CUDA container image versions

It is now possible to build CUDA container images for all supported architectures using Docker Buildkit in one step. See the example script below.

The deprecated image names nvidia/cuda-arm64 and nvidia/cuda-ppc64le will remain available, but no longer supported.

The following product pages still exist but will no longer be supported:

The following gitlab repositories will be archived:

Deprecated: "latest" tag

The "latest" tag for CUDA, CUDAGL, and OPENGL images has been deprecated on NGC and Docker Hub.

With the removal of the latest tag, the following use case will result in the "manifest unknown" error:

$ docker pull nvidia/cuda
Error response from daemon: manifest for nvidia/cuda:latest not found: manifest unknown: manifest

This is not a bug.

Overview of Images

Three flavors of images are provided:

  • base: Includes the CUDA runtime (cudart)
  • runtime: Builds on the base and includes the CUDA math libraries, and NCCL. A runtime image that also includes cuDNN is available.
  • devel: Builds on the runtime and includes headers, development tools for building CUDA images. These images are particularly useful for multi-stage builds.

The Dockerfiles for the images are open-source and licensed under 3-clause BSD. For more information see the Supported Tags section below.

NVIDIA Container Toolkit

The NVIDIA Container Toolkit for Docker is required to run CUDA images.

For CUDA 10.0, nvidia-docker2 (v2.1.0) or greater is recommended. It is also recommended to use Docker 19.03.

How to report a problem

Read NVIDIA Container Toolkit Frequently Asked Questions to see if the problem has been encountered before.

After it has been determined the problem is not with the NVIDIA runtime, report an issue at the CUDA Container Image Issue Tracker.

Supported tags

Supported tags are updated to the latest CUDA and cuDNN versions. These tags are also periodically updated to fix CVE vulnerabilities.
