NVIDIA has created this project to support newer hardware and improved libraries to NVIDIA GPU users who are using TensorFlow 1.x. With release of TensorFlow 2.0, Google announced that new major releases will not be provided on the TF 1.x branch after the release of TF 1.15 on October 14 2019. NVIDIA is working with Google and the community to improve TensorFlow 2.x by adding support for new hardware and libraries. However, a significant number of NVIDIA GPU users are still using TensorFlow 1.x in their software ecosystem. This release will maintain API compatibility with upstream TensorFlow 1.15 release. This project will be henceforth referred to as nvidia-tensorflow.
