    Phoronix: NVIDIA Jetson Nano: A Feature-Packed Arm Developer Kit For $99 USD

    One of the most interesting announcements out of NVIDIA's 2019 GTC conference is the introduction of the Jetson Nano, NVIDIA's latest Arm developer board featuring a Tegra SoC. This developer board is very different from the past Jetson boards in that it's aiming for a very affordable price point: just $99 USD.

    Not unlike the Odroid N2.

    I'm buying this. I hope that CUDA-X fixes the current ecosystem mess. Even installing TensorRT is painful right now.

    This is a platform to test and run AI stuff. If you don't, there are plenty of more attractive solutions.

    I'd be curious how this compares to Google Coral dev board. And that platform is even more blob-like than nVidia. You have to use an online service to convert your models to tensorflow-lite!

    That said, this year is really interesting for AI. Can't wait for Google's Coral PCIe card which arrives in a few months.

    Hi guys,

    Noob question here: As this is running Linux and uses Arm we should be able to run a Kubernetes cluster?

    Many thanks

    Sorry, I lost track... So how many blobs are we talking here ? Would something work with linux-libre and some FSF-compliant distro on this SOC? I vaguely remember someone claiming they had 100% free software running on some tegra SOC years ago... Maybe someone can start a froronix, which tests hardware with 100% free software and instead of bechmarks (which would be nice too) publishes checklists of whether it boots, display works, network works, etc. Pity it would likely require much more work building the platform support. Well, last time I checked phoronix didn't accept SEPA donations and I payed nothing, so I may not be the best one to propose anyone to spend effort on things...

    Here you go, for example:

    https://www.biostar.com.tw/event/A10N-8800E/

    15W FP4 APU or so called mobile as low powered desktop Mobo plus 2x4GB memory would cost you as this nV SOM, both old but new but still would beat it on anything for desktop scenario

    There is FP5 with 12W to 54W Ryzens also, but for laptops and embedded V1000 serie and not cheap

    I smell like AMD will do something cheap FP5-like for desktop masses this year, so that people could say good bye to Windows 7 more easely

    Or maybe pushing with just cheapest excavators for AM4 would be enough

    Even though Nvidia makes nice products, it just feels like I'm doing a disservice to Linux by buying their products. I'm kind of surprised that as Linux supportive as AMD is that they're not in the Linux SBC market in some form. Since I don't think they can compete in the low powered ARM market, create the slightly higher powered x86 SBC market targeting multi-monitor workstations that mainly do office documents and web browsing as well as all sorts of multimedia applications.

    Well yeah that what VAT usually does for the prices, I'm not sure that includes VAT to this device though. But usually nvidia shop adds VAT for graphics cards. Seems to be now early April for shipping date.
    VAT = value added tax



    Maybe it should be called VRT

    Now M.2 wifi can mean anything, as the M.2 can sport PCIe, SATA and USB.
    I also don't know what you mean with M.2 disk... do you mean SATA or PCIe?
    The sd card is a big meeh. Either armfriendly or odroid emmc modules please... sd cards are for PI's that are not meant to run 24/7 for years and really using the storage.
    By M.2 disk I mean either PCIE or SATA. I'd prefer the former but would have been fine with the latter. I believe the connector is there, but it only leaves room for the wifi module so I don't think any standard m.2 formfactor disk would work there, unless someone builds some kind of connector (if it works at all, that is). I run a Jetson TX2 and I like it a lot. This little board is extremely exciting - I'd love to have built stuff around it - but as you say, these SD cards break as soon as you do anything that hits them regularly 24/7. They're awful.

    Now I guess I could just plug something in via USB3 though but that seems a bit hackish. Bit of a missed opportunity here I would think. Everything else about the product looks great.
