8G SOM only show 6.7G memory size on JP5.02


We test found Xavier NX 8G SOM on JP5.02, only 6.7G memory is avaiable. Could you please elaborate Xavier NX memory usage or reserverd? Thanks.

It looks to be necessary for K5.10 and Ubuntu 20.04. Not sure if you need Ubuntu desktop in your use-case. If it is not a must-have, please try to generate minimum rootfs and see it it meets your requirement. Please take a look at

Hi Kayccc

Additional info:
What I mentioned is memory, 8G SOM memory should be about 8G avaiable by ‘free’ command.
the same SOM on JP4.6.2 (Kernel 4.9 and ubuntu 18.04) show memory size is about 7.9G.

However, when run it on JP5.02 (Kernel 5.10 and ubuntu 20.04), which show about 6.7G. Big change, right?

Please check

If Ubuntu 20.04 and K5.10 are not hard requirement in you ruse-case, please use Jetpack 4 release.
