In the NVIDIA documentation it is reported that the unit consumes around 500W. We would like to replicate this with our developer kits. Can someone from NVIDIA please provide a script/software used to calculate the 500W benchmark? Thank you!

Hi

This power reference is for thermal design power, PG189 will consume max 1802 = 360w, Xavier will consume max about 432 = 86w, The rest ethernet, switch and other misc will consume about 50w.
We provide nvqual test for GPU stress test, Customer can run some public application for other power test.

Hi,

Is nvqual available for download?

Thanks

We provided nvqual through nvonline, You should have nvidia support sales/PM for DRIVE AGX Pegasus product, Please contact them to enable it for you.

Hi edli1983,

In the manual “NVIDIA DRIVE AGX SYSTEM MECHANICAL INSTALLATION GUIDE”, it says "95A @12V system EDP for configuration 2 SoCs and 2 dGPUs.
This is roughly 1100W (12A * 95V), but about twice as much as the 496W (PG189: 360W + Xavier: 86W + the others: 50W) mentioned above.
Where does this difference come from?

Thanks
