A Quick Test Of NVIDIA's "Carmel" CPU Performance

Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 25 September 2018. Page 2 of 2. 23 Comments

The 7-Zip multi-threaded compression performance on this Jetson Xavier board was 35% faster than the Jetson TX2.

C-Ray ray-tracing also saw a significant boost in performance with the Jetson Xavier's eight Carmel CPU cores.

There isn't much to share now given the limited time with the hardware remotely, but once receiving the Jetson Xavier Kit from NVIDIA will be plenty more benchmarks... From the initial tests, the eight-core Carmel CPU performance is looking quite good and will be exciting to see how the overall Tegra194 Xavier performs with its Volta GPU and accelerators.

If you want to see how your own Linux CPU performance compares to these ARM board benchmarks, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1809248-RA-XAVIER22283.
