NVIDIA Jetson TX2: Can you imagine a credit card sized supercomputer which can do all the activities of the Artificial Intelligence? Yes, it’s true. NVIDIA has developed a supercomputer, which is tiny like a credit card. The supercomputer is named Jetson TX2 and can perform all the activities of robots, industrial drones, and Artificial Intelligence cameras.
The NVIDIA Jetson TX2 is built in such a way so that it can fulfill the demands of the technological world. It consumes less power so that it can work for sufficient time. The design is the plan in NVIDIA Pascal. The model is like an AI supercomputer which is as small as a credit card, but it is amazing in performance.
The Jetson TX2 consumes less than 7.5 watts power. It is more energy efficient supercomputer compared to the previous AI supercomputer by NVIDIA. The NVIDIA Jetson TX1 was the previous supercomputer of this company and was available last year for $ 300.
The dimension of NVIDIA Jetson TX2 is 8.6 x 4 centimeters. It operates superior neural networks. It is quicker and reliable for image organizing, routing, and voice recognition. It has HMP Denver and ARM A57 CPUs. The graphic is of 256-core NVIDIA Pascal. The storage capacity is 32GB and 8GB of RAM. It packs a component which produces 4K video at 30 fps or 2K at 60 fps. Overall, it has all the features which a powerful AI supercomputer should have.
The Jetson TX2 contains ports like Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0 and a 2.0 port. Some other specifications are 802.11.Ac WLAN and a Bluetooth service. It includes advanced specifications compared to the NVIDIA Jetson TX1. The additional specifications are given in the below image.
The NVIDIA Jetson TX2 development kit is obtainable in the United States and Europe for $599 (approx. Rs.40,000). This kit is well-elaborated and planned. It is a Linux improved design. It will be launched officially on 14th March 2017.
