NVIDIA's Amazing Single-Board ARM Computer Might Be Delayed

Last month NVIDIA announced a really exciting ARM development board based around their Tegra K1 ARM SoC called the Jetson TK1. This high-end ARM board was supposed to begin shipping this week, but it looks like that might be in question.

NVIDIA's Jetson TK1 ARM development board was supposed to debut this week. The TK1 features a Tegra K1 SoC with four ARM Cortex-A15 CPU cores plus a companion core, NVIDIA Kepler GPU graphics with 192 CUDA cores, 2GB of RAM, 16GV eMMC memory, a Serial ATA connector, USB 3.0 support, and other modern functionality.

I had already put in an order for the Jetson TK1 with overnight shipping the day this single-board computer was announced and then I heard from some NVIDIA ARM contacts using the Phoronix Test Suite that they were also working to get me a board... With the hardware expected to ship this week, I've been checking the various Jetson TK1 retailer sites and following up with my contacts.

Sadly, it looks like the Jetson TK1 might be delayed until mid-May. Micro-Center is now reflecting an availability date for the Jetson TK1 board as 15 May. NewEgg is reflecting a release date for this Tegra K1 board as 16 May.

NVIDIA hasn't officially commented yet on if the Jetson TK1 has been pushed back from April or if this delay is only for new orders, but I'm still following up with contacts and hope to learn more in the next day or two... Stay tuned for updates as I'm very excited to begin benchmarking this Tegra K1 development platform with its competitive four-plus-one Cortex-A15 performance paired with a Kepler GPU.
