There are a wide variety of Paperspace machines available on Gradient. This reference guide provides a list of available machines, prices, and the tier or subscription required to access each resource on Gradient.


Paperspace provides a wide variety of CPU, GPU, and IPU machines to Gradient users. New machine types are added regularly.


Customers using Self-Hosted Gradient can define their own machines. Contact Sales to learn more. Private clusters include a compute premium, which is detailed here. The following list is specific to managed machines.

Machine Autoshutdown

Paperspace allows you to set an autoshutdown time limit on all machine types. This is to prevent unnecessary account charges for long running Gradient processes. The autoshutdown timer can be set between 1 hour and 1 week. You may remove the limit but this should be closely monitored because it can lead to large utilization charges.

When using free-tier machines, the maximum autoshutdown timeout is 6 hours. This ensures we maintain fairness and capacity for the entire Paperspace community.

Free machines tier list

There are certain limits on free machines that assist in keeping the capacity for free notebooks available for all users who want access.

Auto-Shutdown: The maximum auto-shutdown limit for any free-machine is 6 hours

Inactivity: Any notebook that is inactive for 1 hour will auto-shutdown. This is to keep free machine capacity available for the Paperspace community.

Notebook Limit: Only 1 Notebook with a free machine can be running at a given time.

Public: On free subscriptions, notebooks with free machines will always be set to public. Upgrade to Pro/Growth if you would like to set free machines to private.

Note: We are currently offering a limited pool of free machines so your notebook may be Pending in the queue as you wait for a free machine to become available. If you need immediate access to machines, please consider upgrading to a paid machine type.

Free machines types improve with each level of Gradient subscription. This list describes the free machines that are available to each subscription tier.

Note: Free plans do not guarantee capacity and have certain limits.

IPU Machines

Paperspace has partnered with Graphcore to offer Intelligence Processing Units (IPU) which are special accelerators built for machine learning. This is a new experience that is free for Paperspace users to test.

The IPU notebook experience is different than CPU and GPU notebooks in two key ways:

  1. The notebook terminal is avaiable for all users, including those without a subscription
  2. Storage is free for users in this experience up to 10GB. Users can raise this limit by adding a CC.
