I have a jetson tx2 with a customized carrier board. We do not need any display service, so I disabled sor in my device tree. But, the reduction of power is not desirable so I want to remove gpu. Because I have not installed any sdkm components on my jetson and I do not have a special code to use gpu.
I have two questions:
1- How much will gpu uninstalling reduce power consumption?
2- how can i do this?
We don’t know the answer because gpu is the key component of any jetson module. So we don’t have a test case that is removing nvgpu module.
nvgpu module is already built as a .ko driver under /lib/modules, if you don’t want to use it, then you can just remove nvgpu.ko file.
Also, need to know that not only display service needs gpu… You better clarifying your usecase before removing nvgpu driver…
