Nvidia aims Jetson TX1 module at serious AI and robotics

Nvidia has launched an AI and robotics oriented “Jetson TX1” module and development kit, based on an Nvidia Tegra X1 SoC running Linux. For its encore to the popular Jetson TK1 hacker and prototyping SBC based on the Cortex-A15 Tegra K1 SoC, Nvidia’s Jetson TX1 has moved to the 64-bit, Cortex-A57 Tegra X1 SoC. Nvidia has also split the product into separately available computer-on-module and COM/carrier development board products. The Jetson TX1 can generate 1 teraflops of performance, drive 4K 60Hz video decode and 4K 30Hz encode, and handle six camera inputs at up to 1400 megapixels per second, says Nvidia. The development kit will open for preorders on Nov. 12 at $599, with shipments beginning within the week, while the module-only product will go on sale in Q1 2016…
