Jetson TX2 4GB Module

NVIDIA has announced the Jetson TX2 4GB module, with the same compute performance of TX2, and the lower price of the TX1 module!

Specs of Jetson TX2 4GB include the following:

  • 1.3 TOPS compute
  • 256-core Pascal integrated GPU
  • Dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 64-bit CPU and quad-core ARM A57 Complex
  • 4GB 128-bit LPDDR4 Memory
  • 16GB eMMC 5.1 Storage

I/O is the same as Jetson TX2, with the exception of wireless which has been removed on Jetson TX2 4GB.
Memory and storage capacity of Jetson TX2 4GB are the same as Jetson TX1.
The Jetson TX2 4GB module will be available starting in June 2019, with volume pricing of $249 in quantities of 1000 units.

To get started today, you can flash the Jetson TX2 4GB Configuration Package to an existing Jetson TX2 devkit, to act as if they were the 4GB variant.
There will not be a developer kit created specifically for the Jetson TX2 4GB module, it will be able to be used interchangeably with the existing devkit.
Like Jetson TX2, Jetson TX2 4GB will be recieving future software upgrades to JetPack-L4T.

Does it include a thermal solution (TTP, Fan) ?

Yes, the module includes the TTP, pre-assembled.

The active fan has always been part of the devkit and not the module SKU.

Although NVIDIA will only be providing the module with TTP, I’ve heard of a couple stories where users have removed it in lieu of their own integrated solutions, however be warned this does void the module’s warranty as the TTP and stiffeners are bonded to the module.

Dear,

Please let me know estimated memory foot print for TX2-4GB?

In my last work with TX2(8GB module), I see almost 4.3 GB of 7.7 GB was used after Ubuntu bring-up(only the ubuntu desktop env.).

I’m curious how much it will be reduced if I apply following configurations for TX2-4GB.

thanks

Hi chjung90, I see closer to 1GB of memory usage after booting to Ubuntu desktop with latest JetPack 3.3 for TX2. The TX2 4GB variant will support the same sw in JetPack, so like TX1 it will be able to fit in the memory footprint effectively for user applications.

Hello,

I want to know how can I apply below configuration to TX2[8GB module] and restore back to original configuration.

Thanks.

Hi serigan, to apply the 4GB Configuration Package to an 8GB module, please follow the directions included in the package to overlay the patch onto L4T on your host PC before flashing that patched L4T to your 8GB module.

To restore your 8GB module to the original configuration, re-flash the module with the vanilla unpatched L4T or JetPack. The changes to the 8GB module are not permanent outside of the currently flashed version of L4T.

Hi,

Does the same version is plan for the Jetson TX2i?

Thanks.

Hi AurelienV, we don’t have plans to make a different variant of Jetson TX2i with the reduced memory capacity.
