NVIDIA Announces World’s Smallest Supercomputer for AI at the Edge – Jetson Xavier NX

by Dhiram Shah

NVIDIA today announced the world’s smallest, most powerful AI supercomputer for robotic and embedded computing devices at the edge – Jetson Xavier NX. With a compact form factor smaller than the size of a credit card, the energy-efficient Jetson Xavier NX module delivers server-class performance up to 21 TOPS for running modern AI workloads, and consumes as little as 10 watts of power. Jetson Xavier NX delivers up to 14 TOPS (at 10W) or 21 TOPS (at 15W), running multiple neural networks in parallel and processing data from multiple high-resolution sensors simultaneously in a Nano form factor (70x45mm).

Jetson Xavier NX opens the door for embedded edge computing devices that demand increased performance but are constrained by size, weight, power budgets or cost. For companies already building embedded machines, Jetson Xavier NX runs on the same CUDA-X AI software architecture as all Jetson offerings, ensuring rapid time to market and low development costs. As part of NVIDIA’s one software architecture approach, Jetson Xavier NX is supported by NVIDIA JetPack software development kit. Priced at $399, the Jetson Xavier NX module will be available in March from NVIDIA’s distribution channels for companies looking to create high-volume production edge systems
