NVIDIA Announces Jetson Xavier NX, Smallest Supercomputer for AI at the Edge

NVIDIA today introduced Jetson Xavier NX, the world's smallest, most powerful AI supercomputer for robotic and embedded computing devices at the edge. With a compact form factor smaller than the size of a credit card, the energy-efficient Jetson Xavier NX module delivers server-class performance up to 21 TOPS for running modern AI workloads, and consumes as little as 10 watts of power.

Jetson Xavier NX opens the door for embedded edge computing devices that demand increased performance but are constrained by size, weight, power budgets or cost. These include small commercial robots, drones, intelligent high-resolution sensors for factory logistics and production lines, optical inspection, network video recorders, portable medical devices and other industrial IoT systems.

FSP Unveils FlexGURU 250W and 300W Modular Power Supplies

FSP, one of the world's leading power supply manufacturers, is pleased to announce the addition of the FlexGURU series. This series of compact, modular, quiet and efficient power supplies is designed for roles such as IPC (Industrial PC), HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer), Edge Computing, and NAS (Network Attached Storage) and NAS Servers. The FlexGURU series includes 250 W and 300 W models. These slim but powerful PSUs - just 150 x 40.5 x 81.5 mm - offer 20 percent higher power density than other typical Flex ATX power supplies. FlexGURU can fulfill VAR (Value Added Reseller) demands involving small quantity requirements from edge computers. This reduced the need to purchase large amounts of customized PSUs and keep stock waiting to be sold.

FSP's FlexGURU Flex ATX's modular design with slim ribbon cables allows for easier set up, reducing cable clutter and improves airflow efficiency. Users only need to install the minimum number of cables required for their own system. Modular connectors allow users to efficiently move cables, and reduce debugging time for a better experience. This also gives users the flexibility to replace the PSU without the hassle of disconnecting every cable from the PC. FSP has created a universal bracket that fits into two different orientations for quick installation into any chassis. The mounting holes and auxiliary bracket are designed to ensure the FlexGURU series is compatible with 99 percent of Flex-ATX PC chassis on the market.

NVIDIA Announces Financial Results for First Quarter Fiscal 2020

NVIDIA today reported revenue for the first quarter ended April 28, 2019, of $2.22 billion compared with $3.21 billion a year earlier and $2.21 billion in the previous quarter. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were $0.64, compared with $1.98 a year ago and $0.92 in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.88 compared with $2.05 a year earlier and $0.80 in the previous quarter.

"NVIDIA is back on an upward trajectory," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "We've returned to growth in gaming, with nearly 100 new GeForce Max-Q laptops shipping. And NVIDIA RTX has gained broad industry support, making ray tracing the standard for next-generation gaming.

Intel Unveils the Neural Compute Stick 2

Intel is hosting its first artificial intelligence (AI) developer conference in Beijing on Nov. 14 and 15. The company kicked off the event with the introduction of the Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 (Intel NCS 2) designed to build smarter AI algorithms and for prototyping computer vision at the network edge. Based on the Intel Movidius Myriad X vision processing unit (VPU) and supported by the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, the Intel NCS 2 affordably speeds the development of deep neural networks inference applications while delivering a performance boost over the previous generation neural compute stick. The Intel NCS 2 enables deep neural network testing, tuning and prototyping, so developers can go from prototyping into production leveraging a range of Intel vision accelerator form factors in real-world applications.

"The first-generation Intel Neural Compute Stick sparked an entire community of AI developers into action with a form factor and price that didn't exist before. We're excited to see what the community creates next with the strong enhancement to compute power enabled with the new Intel Neural Compute Stick 2," said Naveen Rao, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the AI Products Group.
