To find out if your GPU is installed properly and working run the following command:

munim@dnn:~$ sudo lspci -nnk | grep -i nvidia

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:1c81] (rev a1)
Kernel driver in use: nvidia
Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau, nvidia_375_drm, nvidia_375
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:0fb9] (rev a1)

To confirm that the driver was installed correctly and that your GPU is being recognized, run nvidia-smi. This command is also useful if you want to check performance metrics of the GPU.

munim@dnn:~$ sudo nvidia-smi
