Jetson TX2 NX: NVIDIA introduces a new single-board computer with a Pascal GPU
NVIDIA has unveiled another Jetson single-board computer, following the release of the Jetson Nano last year. The Jetson TX2 NX succeeds the Jetson Xavier NX, but the newer module is much cheaper than its predecessor. However, it retains the Xavier NX's 260-pin form factor.
The Jetson TX2 comes with a dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 processor, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 MPCore processor and a 256-core Pascal GPU that can reach 1.3 GHz. According to NVIDIA, the Jetson TX2 NX should achieve up to 1.33 TFLOPS of AI performance and is capable of encoding H.264/H.265 in up to 4K/60 FPS at 1x. Additionally, the SBC has 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 16 GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage.
PCIe is available on the 69.6 x 45 mm board, as is Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.1 at 5 Gbps and video output via HDMI or DisplayPort. NVIDIA intends for people to use the Jetson TX2 NX with AI development. As such, the SBC supports NVIDIA's JetPack SDK, Caffe and Tensorflow.
