The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin AI computer delivers 275 trillion operations per second – over 8x the processing power of its predecessor, Jetson AGX Xavier – while maintaining the same palm-sized form factor and pin compatibility and at a similar price. It features an NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, Arm Cortex-A78AE CPUs, next-generation deep learning and vision accelerators, high-speed interfaces, faster memory bandwidth and multimodal sensor support to feed multiple, concurrent AI application pipelines.

“As AI transforms manufacturing, healthcare, retail, transportation, smart cities and other essential sectors of the economy, demand for processing continues to surge,” says Deepu Talla, vice president 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 can leverage the full NVIDIA CUDA-X accelerated computing stack, NVIDIA JetPack SDK, pretrained models from the NVIDIA NGC catalog and the latest frameworks and tools for application development and optimization such as NVIDIA Isaac on Omniverse, NVIDIA Metropolis, and NVIDIA TAO Toolkit. This, says the company, reduces time and cost for production-quality AI deployments, allowing developers to access the largest, most complex models needed to solve robotics and edge AI challenges in 3D perception, natural language understanding, multisensor fusion and more.

The Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit includes a high-performance, power-efficient Jetson AGX Orin module, and can emulate the other Jetson Orin modules. The Jetson AGX Orin developer kit is available now at $1,999. Production modules will be available in the fourth quarter starting at $399.
