NVIDIA Launches Jetson TX2 and Smokes the Raspberry Pi (But There Is a Catch)

Yesterday (03/07/2017) NVIDIA unveiled the Jetson TX2, a pocket sized tiny computer (running Linux) of the size of a Raspberry Pi. According to NVIDIA the Jetson TX2 was mainly designed to help with artificial intelligence (AI) computing around us. Think of it as enabler of robots, drones and other devices that rely on computer vision applications allowing them to recognize objects and navigate around obstacles.

You will be correct to think that with a name like Jetson TX2, there must have been a TX1 model, and you will be right. The new TX2 is an upgrade to the original TX1 and it comes with twice the performance while needing two times less power.

If you compare the Raspberry Pi 3 and the new Jetson TX2, you will find that the Pi3 falls short and cannot compare to the performance of the TX2. That being said, the performance you gain comes at a price that many will opt out of. The Jetson Tx2 is priced at $599 and for that much money you can get your hands on a lot of Raspberry Pi 3’s. Those who live in the United States and Europe are interested in purchasing the TX2 can preorder now and the units will start shipping on March 14. Other regions and parts of the world will get theirs in the coming weeks.
