Who is it for?

As you can see from the price, this Jetson is targeted towards the professional development crowd. The dev kit can be set up into different configurations to emulate the different Jetson Orin modules that will be available in Q4. Each of these modules have different configurations with regards to the amount of power they consume, the number of CPU cores, and the number of GPU cores. Good stuff!

Check out the official NVIDIA Jetson Orin page for ordering info.

There are now over 1 Million Jetson developers!!!!

Excuses, Excuses …

Normally on a big release like this, NVIDIA provides JetsonHacks with an early production version before the release. However this year there was a little issue. China initiated a lockdown right when the Orin was on its way to JetsonHacks world headquarters. The AGX Orin is now sitting at an airport in Hong Kong waiting. My guess is that if they can convince it to leave the airport bar, it will get on the next plane to its new home. When we get the unit, we’ll go deep dive on it!

We’ll just drop a little info here, and wait for when we get our greedy little mitts on it to get the real info which we will share here.

The Software

The Jetson AGX Orin will run JetPack 5.0, which brings Ubuntu 20.04 with LTS Kernel 5.10. Some of the other highlights include CUDA 11 and new version of cuDNN and TensorRT. This is currently scheduled to be released March 30, 2022. It should run on both Orin and Xavier architectures.

One of the big announcements is that the NSight Tools Suite can now run natively on the Jetson Orin! That means the large number of professional level developer tools, such as the CUDA profiler, can now run natively, no host machine needed!

Jetson Orin Modules

The configuration and pricing for the Jetson Orin Modules has been announced. The modules will begin shipping in Q4, 2022. There are two configurations of both the AGX formats and NX formats.
