Availability of the the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit was announced today at NVIDIA GTC. The platform is the world’s most powerful, compact, and energy-efficient AI supercomputer for advanced robotics, autonomous machines, and next-generation embedded and edge computing.

Jetson AGX Orin delivers up to 275 trillion operations per second (TOPS). It gives customers more than 8X the processing power of its predecessor Jetson AGX Xavier, while maintaining the same small form factor and pin compatibility. It features an NVIDIA Ampere Architecture GPU, Arm Cortex-A78AE CPU, next-generation deep learning and vision accelerators, high-speed interfaces, faster memory bandwidth, and multimodal sensor support to feed multiple, concurrent AI application pipelines.

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit is perfect for prototyping advanced AI-powered robots and edge AI applications for manufacturing, logistics, retail, agriculture, healthcare, and more.

“As AI transforms manufacturing, healthcare, retail, transportation, smart cities, and other essential sectors of the economy, demand for processing continues to surge,” said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of embedded and edge computing at NVIDIA. “A million developers and more than 6,000 companies have already turned to Jetson. The availability of Jetson AGX Orin will supercharge the efforts of the entire industry as it builds the next generation of robotics and edge AI products.”

Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit features:

  • Up to 275 TOPS and 8X the performance of the last generation, plus high-speed interface support for multiple sensors.
  • An NVIDIA Ampere Architecture GPU and 12-core Arm Cortex-A78AE 64-bit CPU, together with next-generation deep learning and vision accelerators.
  • High-speed I/O, 204.8GB/s of memory bandwidth, and 32GB of DRAM capable of feeding multiple concurrent AI application pipelines.

The Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit has the computing capability of more than eight Jetson AGX Xavier systems. It integrates the latest NVIDIA GPU technology with the world’s most advanced deep learning software stack, delivering the flexibility to create sophisticated AI solutions now and well into the future. The developer kit can emulate all the production Jetson AGX Orin and Orin NX modules, set for release later in 2022.

Customers using the Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit can leverage the full NVIDIA CUDA-X accelerated computing stack. This suite includes pretrained models from the NVIDIA NGC catalog and the latest NVIDIA application frameworks and tools for application development and optimization, such as Isaac, Metropolis, TAO, and Omniverse.

These tools reduce time and cost for production-quality AI deployments. Developers can access the largest, most complex models needed to solve robotics and edge AI challenges in 3D perception, natural language understanding, multisensor fusion, and more.

Developer kit pricing and availability

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit is available now at $1,999. Production Jetson Orin modules will be available later in 2022 starting at $399.
