Jetson AGX Orin adds processing horsepower

At GTC 2021, NVIDIA introduced Jetson AGX Orin, which it described as “the world’s smallest, most powerful, and energy-efficient supercomputer for robotics, autonomous machines, medical devices, and other forms of embedded computing at the edge.”

Jetson AGX ORIN is built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture and Arm Cortex-A78AE CPUs and includes deep learning and vision accelerators. It provides six times the processing power and maintains form factor and pin compatibility with its predecessor, Jetson AGX Xavier, said the company. It can conduct 200 trillion operations per second.

The new Jetson computer will enable developers to deploy the largest, most complex models needed to solve edge AI and robotics challenges in natural language understanding, 3D perception, multi-sensor fusion, and more, said NVIDIA.

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin module and developer kit will be available in the first quarter of 2022.
