Written by Slobodan Simic

Tegra K1 based dev-kit with US $192 price tag

During last night keynote's at GTC 2014, Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Haung has announced the new Jetson TK1 developer-kitbased on Tegra K1 SoC.

Described by Jen-Hsun as "the world's tiniest little supercomputer" the Jetson TK1 dev-kit is aimed at embedded systems. With performance of 326 GFLOPs, 192 CUDA Cores and VisionWorks SDK as well as, rather suprisingly affordable US $192 price tag, the new Jetson TK1 dev-kit will give a bit more power to advanced robotics, autonomous cars like the Audi showcased during the keynote, computers attempting to simulate human recognition, as well as medical and other industrial fields.

As noted, the Jetson TK1 dev-kit ships with Nvidia's VisionWorks toolkit which provides set of computer vision and image processing algorithms and offer CUDA-powered capabilites in areas such as robotics, augmented reality, computational photography, human-computer interface and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

In addition to the Tegra K1 SoC, the Jetson TK1 dev-kit also packs 2GB of memory as well as I/O connectors for USB 3.0, HDMI 1.4, Gigabit Ethernet, audio, SATA, miniPCIe and an SD card slot.

The new Jetson TK1 dev-kit is already available for pre-order from Nvidia, Microcenter and Newegg in the US while, according to our info, Zotac will carry it in Europe and Japan distribution is done via Ryoyo Electro Corporation.
