NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Linux Benchmarks

While most people buying a Jetson TX2 will be loading it up with CUDA workloads, I was also curious about the pure CPU performance of the TX2 given its use of Denver 2 CPU cores paired with four Cortex-A57 CPU cores.

The FFTW performance was nearly doubled in going from the TX1 to TX2.

With the OpenMP-using John The Ripper crypto workload, the TX2 was only a little bit faster than the TX1.

While the C-Ray multi-threaded ray-tracer saw much better performance out of the TX2.

For FLAC audio encoding as a single single-threaded test-case, the Jetson TX2 still came out ahead of the TX1.

The Jetson TX2 is also looking good with the Redis server performance compared to the TX1.

These are the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 benchmark results I was able to finish in time for this morning's launch. Stay tuned for more Jetson TX2 raw Linux performance benchmarks as well as more power consumption and performance-per-Watt tests in future articles, including a broader Linux CPU/GPU performance comparison. If any Phoronix readers have any specialized test requests for the TX2, feel free to share them in the forums. So far the Jetson TX2 is looking great for those in need of a high-end ARM 64-bit SoC with powerful graphics/compute capabilities.
