Does Azure data science VM come with any pre-installed tools?

I want to create a DSVM on Azure but how is it different from a normal VM and does it come with any pre-installed tools that can be used for running machine learning related services?

The Data Science Virtual Machine is the easiest way to explore data and do machine learning in the cloud. The Data Science Virtual Machines are pre-configured with the complete operating system, security patches, drivers, and popular data science and development software. You can choose the hardware environment, ranging from lower-cost CPU-centric machines to very powerful machines with multiple GPUs, NVMe storage, and large amounts of memory. For machines with GPUs, all drivers are installed, all machine learning frameworks are version-matched for GPU compatibility, and acceleration is enabled in all application software that supports GPUs.

The list of all ML solutions that are available on a DSVM are available here for reference.
