Default After 5,000 Colab GPU attempts.

This started about the new year.
Comparing the first 1,000 you can see there have been a lot more K80s recently.

It doesn't show here but in the last 1,000 attempts 640 were unique; including 380 unique for T4s out of 594.
That tells me either I'm still a ways short of seeing all GPUs colab has ... or they have been replacing them regularly: probably a little of each.

Code:

TYPE:  TOT  UNIQ
ALL:  5000  3658
T4:   4182  2889
P100:  297   281
P4:    145   129
K80:   376   359

ALL:  1000   904
T4:    927   832
P100:   39    39
P4:     27    26
K80:     7     7

Have you seen these before? I used them until just 5 minutes ago.
GPU 0: Tesla K80 (UUID: GPU-1e451911-17ec-e582-a61f-fbbaf862d9b5)

Lately I get almost half K80 and almost half T4....with sporadic P4 and P100

Since one month I only be able to get T4/P4 or sometimes K80 instances (5-6 hours) at free google colab. Are the good times at colab over? Are P100 runtimes still available for other free users?

Count your blessings. Almost all T4 here if getting a gpu; rarely a K80. Usually one gpu session/account/day; gpu sessions often 3.5-4 hr, sometimes ~1.5 hours. CPU-only 6.5-7.1 hours typical.

No P100 for me for several weeks.
And lately very few K80.
About 98% T4.

I find that the CPU gives you 12 hours/session IF you respond to an "are you human" request that appears some random time from 6 hours to 6:40 into the session. If you don't respond to that, your session is killed some time later (rarely lasting longer than 7 hours). If you do respond, the session will generally be killed after the 12 hour mark (for me it's generally a few seconds to about 5 minutes after the 12 hour mark). A new CPU session can be restarted immediately after the last one ends.

If the GPU session is going to last longer than 3 hours, shortly after 3 hours I get an "are you human" request. If I respond to that the session may last longer than 4 hours, and sometimes (very rarely) I've had a much longer GPU session. If I don't respond to the "are you human" prompt, then the session gets killed 3:45 to 3:50 (if it doesn't stop abruptly before that).

Sometimes I get just over an hour on the GPU, but I average around 3 hours.

For a while now I've only been getting T4 and the occasional K80 for GPU.

Sometimes an account can't get a GPU for 7-14 days, then one day it gets the GPU again with a very short session (maybe 65 minutes), and then the sessions get longer again after that it until it's back in with the normal mix of times I get on GPU sessions.
