Any help on using setting up the correct GPU on MacBook

My MacBook Pro has a built-in Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M (8GB) GPU. I do understand that the CPU can be used for all other parts leading up to training and that I can use GoogleColab but if it is possible to utilize the GPU on this MacBook Pro that would be awesome. I can’t find solutions about how to get Nvidia GPUs on my this machine. I am wondering if anyone can help!

MacBook Pro (2019)
Processor: 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
Memory: 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

  • Intel UHD Graphics 630 (built in), VRAM(Dynamic,max) =1536 MB
  • AMD Radeon Pro 5500M (PCIe) , VRAM(max) =1536 MB 8GB

You can’t. No Nvidia/Cuda support on modern Macs.

Thank you! Appreciate the response!

see this post concerning the possibilities of using AMD Radeon : Deeplabcut with ATI Radeon GPU - #3 by neuralcoding

tl;dr; it might be possible. However, bear in mind that installing the NVIDIA toolchain to run natively (no docker) is fairly complicated, so trying something even less standard will likely require even more effort.

edit : also CUDA dependence in DLC
