Native ODM Windows GPU?

I am running my first test of ODM running natively on Windows. It does not seem to use GPU. Is this normal?

I see:

[INFO] CUDA drivers detected
[WARNING] Cannot use GPU for feature extraction: Cannot initialize CUDA



Sorry for the trouble! Could you please start with giving me a bit more information about your system?

For instance:

  1. Operating System and Version
    eg: Windows 11, MacOS 15.1, Ubuntu Linux 20.04LTS, etc…
  2. Hardware Specifications
    eg: 32GB RAM, i7-6700k, NVIDIA GTX 1050TI OC, 1TB SSD, etc…
  3. WebODM Install Method
    eg: Native installer, Docker, Snap, GitHub download, compiled from source
  4. WebODM/ODM Version
    eg: WebODM v1.9.12 Build 55, ODM v2.8.0, etc…
  5. Procesing Node
    eg: Automatic, Lightning, local (node-odm-1), etc…
  6. Screenshots demonstrating the issue/behavior/error messages

Thanks for the fast reply. Here is the info:

  1. Windows 11
  2. 32 GB RAM, 11th Gen Intel(R) Core™ i7-11800H @ 2.30GHz 2.30 GHz, 1 TB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop 8 GB
  3. Native Windows ODM installer
  4. ODM 2.8.5
  5. sorry not sure about that one
  6. Here’s the start of what I see, copy-pasted from console (still running). In bold is the CUDA/GPU message.

Hmmm… Thanks for this. This matches a number of other recent reports we’ve had from users on builds newer than v1.9.11 Build 58, all on hardware and software that should be appropriate for GPU feature extraction.

With the latest build GPU feature extraction is again working for smaller images :slight_smile: However, I still don’t understand why a 12MB M2P image can’t have its features extracted inside 4GB of GPU memory.
