Despite being the smallest AI and DL supercomputer in the world, Performance wise Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX is top and energy-efficient Single Board Computers among others. Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX would clock an operational computation of 21 Tera Operations Per Second (TOPS) on a 15W power supply. And at just 10W, the Xavier NX clocks around 14 TOPS. Its ultra-small 70–45mm footprint takes up little space but packs in a 6-core NVIDIA Carmel ARM v8.2 64-bit CPU with a 384-core NVIDIA Volta GPU and 48 Tensor cores.

Key Specifications :

  • CPU: 6-core NVIDIA Carmel 64-bit ARMv8.2 @ 1400MHz* (6MB L2 + 4MB L3)
  • GPU: NVIDIA Volta architecture with 384 NVIDIA CUDA cores and 48 Tensor cores
  • DL Accelerator: 2x Dual NVIDIA Deep Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) engines
  • Vision Accelerator: 7-Way VLIW Vision Processor
  • Memory: 8GB 128-bit LPDDR4x @ 1600MHz | 51.2GB/s
  • Storage: MicroSD support
  • Display: HDMI and Display port
  • AI Performance: 6 TFLOPS (FP16), 21 TOPS (INT8)
  • Storage: MicroSD support

Pros and Cons :

Pros :-

  • Great for robotics
  • AI-capable — handles machine learning, natural language processing, and more
  • Excellent for desktop use
  • Fantastic for high-end retro gaming emulation
  • Great I/O — Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB 3.1, GPIO, HDMI/DisplayPort
  • Up to 21 TOPS of computer power
  • 4K video output
  • Small form factor

Cons :-

  • It is not cheap
  • Larger than Raspberry Pi and its alternatives

NVIDIA Jetson Nano Vs Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX :

NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX is the younger sibling of Jetson Nano and Jetson TX2. Around $400 for the Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX, compared to $100 for the Jetson Nano. For less demanding AI applications, the Jetson Nano should work just fine, but if you need supercomputer capabilities, the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX is a best choice.
