DRIVE Xavier is a board designed for the AI car systems that are used in self-driving and semi-autonomous cars. So the board must support a wide range of sensors plus the artificial intelligence algorithms.
According to the NVIDIA boss, the board should consume only 30 watts of power, which is not much for how many calculations it can make. Also, do not forget that this board will be used especially on electric cars and any watt consumed counts.
The most important features:
- include a deep-learning accelerator
- include a new computer-vision accelerators
- can process 30 trillion operations per second;
- 8-core CPU
- 512-core Volta GPU
- 8K HDR video processor
- support the NVIDIA DRIVE software stack (AI software for autonomous driving)
PS: I’m almost sure that the price will have many zeros.
