Nvidia Jetson Goes Volta Tensor Core.

Nvidia announces a new Autonomous robot platform Jetson Xavier to feature Volta Tensor Core technology and enhanced Isaac Robotics Software. Developer kits to hit the market in August at $1299/kit. Yet another platform goes Volta.

At the heart of NVIDIA Isaac is Jetson™ Xavier™, the world’s first computer designed specifically for robotics. With more than 9 billion transistors, it delivers over 30 TOPS (trillion operations per second) — more processing capability than a powerful workstation while using a third the energy of a lightbulb.

Jetson Xavier has six kinds of high-performance processors — a Volta Tensor Core GPU, an eight-core ARM64 CPU, dual NVDLA deep learning accelerators, an image processor, a vision processor and a video processor.

It’s an AI computer for autonomous machines, delivering the performance of a GPU workstation in an embedded module under 30W. With multiple operating modes at 10W, 15W, and 30W, Jetson Xavier has greater than 10x the energy efficiency and more than 20x the performance of its predecessor, the Jetson TX2.



Making use of that ARM partnership they announced in March.

Seeding the markets. The robots are coming. Yes Nvidia still has a long runway Flixfool, we’re only getting started.



Well, another technology advance. The brains that NVDA sells for the edge just got better! I think this business in the edge will be bigger than the datacenter business. Hopefully, they will break out the revenue for Jetson in the future earnings calls so we can monitor adoption.
