Titled “Everything You Need To Know About The NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Performance“, Michael Larabel over at Phoronix has just published a set of benchmarks for the Jetson TX1 Development Kit. If you’re into benchmarks, the article is certainly worth the read.
Simply put, this is the best 64-bit ARM development board one can reasonably buy right now. There aren’t many interesting AArch64 boards out right now, but even still the Jetson TX1 is a mighty powerful beast with its 256-core Maxwell GPU and quad-core Cortex-A57 design.
That said, I am very happy with the Jetson TX1 ARM development board as someone who’s into (non-Android) Linux performance, there are a lot of opportunities for this development board thanks to the powerful Maxwell GPU and Cortex-A57 cores, and this is frankly the most compelling 64-bit ARM development board I’ve seen to date. With an average power consumption of under 10 Watts, there’s many possibilities and is even beefy enough to be a very power efficient Linux desktop if you’re fine with the price. The Tegra X1 SoC also has excellent multimedia capabilities.
