Nvidia says its new Jetson board can compete with a Core i7

Jesse Clayton, product manager at Nvidia, said that as well as having better recognition capabilities, robots and drones will also be able avoid collisions using deep learning algorithms and image processing engines on the board. For essential maker-board style expansion and interfacing Nvidia has kitted out the Jetson TX1 board with 3x UART, 3x SPI, 4x I2C, 4x I2S, and GPIOs. NVIDIA foresees the Jetson TX1 being used in drones, autonomous vehicles, security systems, medical devices, and IoT devices coupled with deep neural networks, machine learning, and computer vision software. The huge leap in compute performance should enable even more interesting projects and bring more sophisticated automation and machine learning to smaller and more intelligent devices. Nvidia is providing a software development kit for theTX1, including a debugger, compiler, libraries…
