In late March NVIDIA unveiled the Tegra K1 Jetson development board as a very exciting quad-core Cortex-A15 with NVIDIA's fifth companion core while also leveraging a Kepler GPU with 192 CUDA cores, Serial ATA support, USB 3.0 support, and other features. This exciting ARM development board will begin shipping later this month for less than $200 USD.

When writing about the Jetson single-board computer last month, I was super-excited about it and ordered one board myself right away and intend to order several more for Phoronix Linux benchmarking. When the Jetson single-board computer was announced I already was very fond of NVIDIA's Tegra K1 SoC with having checked out some K1 reference designs at GDC 2014. NVIDIA's also been backing open-source support for the Tegra K1 graphics to make things more exciting.

The Jetson board was announced with a $192 MSRP and a pledge to ship in April. Now that it's April, some Phoronix readers who also jumped on this bandwagon may be wondering about more details... Through more sources, I've found out that it's planned for a late April debut. Those who pre-ordered the Jetson will find their boards shipped in about three weeks if they ordered via NewEgg or NVIDIA.com. Everything I've heard from my sources about this Tegra K1 board remain very positive and that it's performing very well. Stay tuned and in three weeks we'll have up some very interesting new ARM benchmarks on Phoronix.
