At just 70 x 45 mm, the new NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX is smaller than a credit card. Yet it delivers server-class AI performance at up to 21 TOPS, while consuming as little as 10 watts of power.

Short for Nano Xavier, the NX is a low-power version of the Xavier SoC that came up tops in the MLPerf Inference benchmarks.

The Jetson Xavier NX can be configured to deliver up to 14 TOPS at 10 W, or 21 TOPS at 15 W. It is powerful enough to run multiple neural networks in parallel, and process data from multiple high-resolution sensors simultaneously.

The NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX runs on the same CUDA-X AI software architecture as all other Jetson processors, and is supported by the NVIDIA JetPack software development kit.

It is pin-compatible with the Jetson Nano, offering up to 15X higher performance than the Jetson TX2 in a smaller form factor.
