Review videos : NVIDIA Jetson Nano

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I've finished my review video about the NVIDIA Jetson Nano.
I kept it simple, more videos to come on gameplay and neural network self learning. 
Here's the review video.

I like it a lot. Does Blender great, and works well as light desktop. Loving the graphics drivers and hoping soon the other SBC's can have simular good drivers. 
It is close to being my favorite. If only the cpu had more power...
Here my gathered data.
 

Spoiler

Check power mode        : sudo nvpmodel -q
Set 5W mode             : sudo nvpmodel -m1
Set 10W mode            : sudo nvpmodel -m0
config file             : sudo nano /etc/nvpmodel.conf

5W Mode clocks to 921Mhz and disables 2 cores 

Show clocks mode        : sudo jetson_clocks --show
Set everything to max   : sudo jetson_clocks          (turns back to normal after reboot)

Here my 2nd video where I show more of the desktop experience with the Nano in the Ubuntu of NVIDIA.
I show Youtube playback and video playback and gives some tips for better playback. I do some photo editing with gimp, some 3d modeling and rendering with Blender. And video editing with KDEnlive.

Nice work - which audience are you attempting to approach here?

 

Keep in mind that Jetson Nano is a gateway into the whole nVidia ecosystem/platform first - as a consumer/enthusiast SBC application, it's a secondary consideration.

 

With Nano - it gets complicated, and L4T has always been that way - seems like it's getting better,  but apt-update/upgrade can sometimes not be a good thing, based on prior experience with this platform.
