It is internship, wait till you get hired I guess
oscylo9851yWow, cool. I have 1080Ti for local stuff at work. Good enough.
Nanos94821yMy first internship I had to bring my own computer in !
They didn't have any of their own..
Interestingly we had an inspection from higher ups who asked why I was playing games, we'll I'd done all my work in half a day instead of the week they gave me, by re-writing the code to be more efficient.
They did eventually get their own computers, but then forbid anyone to code..
devs31971yAt my old job (where I did ML):
Company: Okay we have a small server in the basement with 128 gb ram. You need a GPU for training, let’s get a 1080Ti.
Receives it after ordering
Company: oh shoot, the GPU is to big for the small server. Anyone at the office who wants a free 1080Ti?
My colleague got it (he had been there longer than me).
Later they talked about buying a new larger server with 2xV100. One of my colleagues there once told me, that at that specific company, money is just something that you spend... Ridiculous
devs31971y- for completeness for the story, they got a 1070 as a temporary measure until they chose to upgrade the entire server
endor64921yWhen your internship is over, you can go away, but your computer will definitely stay. So it makes sense that they can buy stuff that is even more expensive than your intern salary
