MAXN Mode on 32GB Orin

I have a 32GB Orin Module. I am able to set it to MAXN mode using the command:

sudo /usr/sbin/nvpmodel -m 0

I can see that it was put in MAXN mode by running jetson_clocks. In looking at the documentation, I see that the max power mode for the 32GB Orin module is the 40W power mode. How does the 32GB module perform in MAXN mode?

Not sure waht do you mean, all information have been describe in the Jetson Orin Nano Series, Jetson Orin NX Series and Jetson AGX Orin Series — Jetson Linux Developer Guide documentation (

@kayccc thank you for pointing me to that document. I am trying to compare some of the output from tegrastats on two different Jetson 32GB Orins.

I currently have both Orins running in MODE_30W.

Regarding power draw, on one Orin I’m seeing:

VDD_GPU_SOC 3357mW/3356mW VDD_CPU_CV 479mW/489mW VIN_SYS_5V0 4677mW/4763mW NC 0mW/0mW VDDQ_VDD2_1V8AO 298mW/302mW NC 0mW/0mW

On the other Orin I’m seeing:

VDD_GPU_SOC 3355mW/3373mW VDD_CPU_CV 958mW/823mW VIN_SYS_5V0 5555mW/5489mW NC 0mW/0mW VDDQ_VDD2_1V8AO 990mW/911mW NC 0mW/0mW

And I’m trying to determine why they are so different (particularly the value for VDD_CPU_CV). Is there any more information on what these numbers mean and what they should be under different power modes?

Power model is just a profile not real power. Detail power consumption depends on use case.

Hi @Trumany, thank you for your response. I’m wondering why when I’m running the same software on both systems I am getting such different numbers. Is there any additional information that can be provided by tegrastats or some other tools to debug this?

Hi, even same software, the process might not be in same step. Maybe you should measure the overall power consumption.
