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.
