NVIDIA Announces Jetson AGX Orin Development Kit with Ampere GPU for $1,999


In November 2021, Nvidia had already presented the Jetson AGX Orin at the Autumn GTC, but at that time it only announced the pure development kit in a configuration up to 200 TOPS.

It should be famous that with Jetson products it is always necessary to distinguish between the complete development kit, which can be used as a stand-alone solution, and so-called production modules, which after development can be used in total robots and comparable products, such as surveillance cameras. assisted by AI or, for example, autonomous transport vehicles in factories.

Orin is a SoC with ARM Cortex-A78 cores and Ampere GPU, which is also used for driving assistance systems.

Jetson AGX Orin Development Kit for $1,999

Until now, Jetson Xavier was the top model in the NVIDIA portfolio, but today this position is occupied by Jetson AGX Orin with 275 TOPS (INT8). This is an even bigger variant than what Nvidia had promised last fall, with up to 200 TOPS. The Jetson AGX Orin development kit can be ordered now from NVIDIA for $1,999 before tax. The development kit offers developers 275 TOPS, a CPU with twelve ARM Cortex-A78, an Ampere GPU with 2,048 CUDA cores and 64 Tensor cores, as well as 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 204.8 GB/s of bandwidth. . As storage for the user, it has 64 GB of eMMC 5.1. The chip also offers various video encoders for 4K and FHD and decoders for 8K, 4K and FHD.

Production modules from 70 to 275 TOPS

The Jetson AGX Orin is the all-in-one solution for developers, while the pure production modules, without a case, are intended for production. They are offered as a large 100×87mm board with the 699-pin Molex Mirror Mezz connector or as a smaller 69.9×45mm 260-pin plug-in card with an Nvidia SO-DIMM connector. The performance and price of these modules range from TOPS 70 to TOPS 275 and $399 to $1,599 before tax, respectively, when a minimum of 1,000 units are purchased. Nvidia plans to distribute the modules in the course of the fourth quarter.

Jetson AGX Orin delivers 275 trillion operations per moment, providing customers with more than 8 times the processing power of its predecessor, Jetson AGX Xavier, while maintaining the same palm-sized form factor and compatibility. of pins, all at a similar price. It features an NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, Arm Cortex-A78AE CPUs, next-generation machine vision and deep learning accelerators, high-speed interfaces, increased reminiscence bandwidth, and multi-modal sensor support to power multiple AI application pipelines. concurrent.

“As AI transforms manufacturing, healthcare, retail, transportation, smart cities, and other fundamental sectors of the economy, the demand for computing continues to rise,” said Deepu Talla, Vice President of Embedded and Edge Computing at NVIDIA . “One million developers and more than 6,000 companies have already turned to Jetson. The availability of Jetson AGX Orin will empower industry-wide efforts to build the next generation of edge AI and robotics products.”
