Nvidia Sets Deep Learning Loose with Embeddable GPU

Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) this week unveiled the Jetson TX1, a credit card-sized device that packs a computational wallop for tasks such as machine learning, computer vision, and data analytics. The company envisions customers embedding the diminutive GPU+CPU combo into field devices, such as drones that navigate themselves.The stats on the Jetson TX1 are fairly impressive. It includes a 1 teraflop, 256-core Maxwell-based GPU for processing machine learning tasks, along with a 64-bit ARM A57CPU for less compute-intensive tasks. The Linux-based device also includes 4GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a camera capable of recording 1,400 megapixels per second, 4K video encoding and decoding, and WiFi, Bluetooth, and 1GbE connectivity. Nvidia says the Jetson TX1 is the first embeddable computer designed to process deep neural networks and thereby “learn” about the…
