NVIDIA's Jetson TX2 is an embedded system-on-module (SoM) with dual-core NVIDIA Denver2 + quad-core ARM Cortex-A57, 8GB 128-bit LPDDR4 and integrated 256-core Pascal GPU.

Useful for deploying computer vision and deep learning, Jetson TX2 runs Linux and provides greater than 1TFLOPS of FP16 compute performance in less than 7.5 watts of power.

Jetson TX2 is available as the module, developer kit, and in compatible ecosystem products. See wiki of previous Jetson's here.
