NVIDIA has revealed new Jetson AGX devices, both with 12-core CPUs and Ampere-based GPUs. The pair should offer 200 TOPS of AI performance (INT8) and are compatible with previous Jetson devices.

NVIDIA has unveiled more Jetson single-board computers, both with NVIDIA Ampere GPUs. The Jetson AGX Orin will be available as a Dev Kit and a module, mirroring the availability of its predecessors.

The Jetson AGX Odin relies on a 12-core CPU; all ARM Cortex-A78AE cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. Additionally, NVIDIA has included 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM operating on a 256-bit bus, yielding an effective bandwidth of 204 GB/s. Furthermore, the Jetson AGX Odin has 64 GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage and an M.2 Key M connector for an NVMe SSD.

Another star of the show is Odin's Ampere-based GPU, which has 2,048 CUDA cores, 64 Tensor cores and a 1,000 MHz clock speed. NVIDIA complements this with 2x NVDLA 2.0 DL accelerators, while Odin as a whole offers 200 TOPS of AI performance (INT8).

Jetson AGX Orin devices maintain pin and form-factor compatibility with Xavier, while the module measures 100 x 87 mm, matching previous Jetson modules. As a result, NVIDIA's new module is a drop-in replacement for Xavier ones. NVIDIA is yet to reveal how much its Jetson AGX Orin devices cost, but it has confirmed that they will be available from Q1 2022.
