Installing tensorflow 2.7

hello there,

i have been experimenting with ML and ANN recently. and it seems that installing Tensorflow through pip is very annoying. so i have two questions in that regard:

  1. it seems that tensorflow and tensorflow-gpu were merged a few years ago, but in anaconda they still seem to be two different packages (on github there is also two packages), so does installing the “tensorflow” package gets me gpu support?
  2. since November tensorflow was updated to 2.7 but it still 2.6 in anaconda, why is that? and is there a way i can get the 2.7?
    thanks in advance.
