Announcing Jetson Orin Nano

We are pleased to announce the Jetson Orin Nano series, rounding out the Jetson Orin family of modules. Jetson Orin Nano modules deliver up to 40 TOPS of AI performance in the smallest Jetson form-factor, with power options between 5W and 15W. This gives you up to 80X the performance of the previous generation Jetson Nano and sets the new standard for entry-level Edge AI.

Jetson Orin Nano 8GB and Jetson Orin Nano 4GB are form-factor and pin-compatible with Jetson Orin NX series modules. They support multiple concurrent AI application pipelines with high-speed IO and an NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, enabling lower-priced consumer, retail analytics, and industrial QA devices to benefit from more complex AI models.

The Jetson Orin Nano modules will be available in January, 2023 starting at $199, and you can start developing for them today with the Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit. Check the “Additional Files” section of the Jetson Linux 35.1 release page for the Orin Nano emulation overlay.

We have set up a new forum for Jetson Orin Nano. For more information about Jetson Orin Nano, see these new documents:

I am trying Orin Agx (15w) and Orin Nano (15w) for running the yolov5 family. I got Instance per second for each:

                             IPS Orin AGX	IPS Orin Nano

yolov5s int8 80.08585203 122.5208746

yolov5xint8 18.50656465 30.93539371
yolov5xfp16 11.57943492 18.20232719

strangely the yolov5 gets better results on Orin Nano.

I wanted to know what is the reason for getting better results on Nano. Also, I checked the power of GPU and also GPU frequency.

Nano Orin GPU frequency is 627.
AGX Orin GPU frequency is 408.

Nano Orin VDD_GPU_SOC-IN_POWER jumps to 9000.
Orin AGX VDD_GPU_SOC-IN_POWER is around 6500.

Is it normal that Orin Nano get better results than AGX orin 15w?
