Over at the Nvidia Blog, Will Park writes that the company is now shipping the Jetson TK1 development kit, “the world’s first supercomputer for developing embedded applications and devices.”
Jetson TK1 is built to help you put more power in more places. Order the kit and you’ll get a Jetson TK1 development board, an AC adapter with power cord, a USB cable for flashing, and our quick start guide to help get you running. At Jetson’s core: Tegra K1. Announced earlier this year, Tegra K1 is built around 192 programmable cores that can deliver more than 300 Gigaflops of computing power. These cores are built around the same Kepler architecture used by some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. As a result, all of Tegra K1’s power can be unlocked with CUDA, the same pervasive, easy-to-use parallel processing platform used on Kepler-powered workstations and supercomputers. That means the applications for Tegra K1 are already here. The result: Jetson TK1 is a great development platform for computer vision and CUDA applications for robotics, medicine, security, automotive, and defense applications, among others.
The Jetson TK1 sells for $192, or just $1 for each computing core.
