Why conda cannot install tensorflow gpu properly on Windows?

  conda, nvidia, tensorflow, windows

I was using Linux at work and am used to install tensorflow GPU version via Conda.

The Linux machine has NVIDIA driver, and nvidia-smi runs properly.

The command I use is

conda install python tensorflow-gpu

Magically, conda takes care of everything. It installs cudatoolkit or whatever related tools. Once I run python in that virtual environment, GPU is usable.

Now I switch to work on Windows. The Windows box has NVIDIA driver, and nvidia-smi runs properly. Then I use the same conda command as I used on Linux. conda install is successful but the python in the virtual env does not detect GPU.

How to install tensorflow 2 gpu on windows 10 with conda? says on Windows I must manually install cudnn and Cuda. Why conda on Windows does not take care of it as Linux one does?
