# torch.Tensor.new_tensor¶

Tensor.new_tensor(data, dtype=None, device=None, requires_grad=False)Tensor

Returns a new Tensor with data as the tensor data. By default, the returned Tensor has the same torch.dtype and torch.device as this tensor.

Warning

new_tensor() always copies data. If you have a Tensor data and want to avoid a copy, use torch.Tensor.requires_grad_() or torch.Tensor.detach(). If you have a numpy array and want to avoid a copy, use torch.from_numpy().

Warning

When data is a tensor x, new_tensor() reads out ‘the data’ from whatever it is passed, and constructs a leaf variable. Therefore tensor.new_tensor(x) is equivalent to x.clone().detach() and tensor.new_tensor(x, requires_grad=True) is equivalent to x.clone().detach().requires_grad_(True). The equivalents using clone() and detach() are recommended.

Parameters

Example:

>>> tensor = torch.ones((2,), dtype=torch.int8)
>>> data = [[0, 1], [2, 3]]
>>> tensor.new_tensor(data)
tensor([[ 0,  1],
[ 2,  3]], dtype=torch.int8)
