Earlier today, we told you about NVIDIA's new Ampere GPU architecture, which forms the basis of the A100 GPU and the DGX A100 AI compute system. However, Ampere is also scaling down to be used in NVIDIA's DRIVE AGX platform for automakers.  NVIDIA's next-generation DRIVE AGX range is incredibly scalable through the use of the Orin SoC and 7nm Ampere GPUs. Starting at the very low-end, NVIDIA is promoting a windshield-mounted advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that offers 10 TOPS of compute performance while consuming just 5 watts. From there, NVIDIA can scale to a Level 2+ DRIVE AGX autonomous vehicle platform with 200 TOPS compute within a 45W power profile. Finally,... Read more...
Volvo is a name that is synonymous with safety, and the company is taking another step towards making its vehicles even safer by slowly wresting control away from human drivers. Volvo announced this morning that it will be adopting NVIDIA's DRIVE AGX Xavier platform for its future self-driving vehicles. DRIVE AGX Xavier features a single Xavier SoC, which is rated at 30 trillion operations per second (TOPs), while consuming just 30 watts of power. Xavier is an octa-core design that also incorporates a Volta-based GPU with 512 CUDA cores. NVIDIA has also fitted Xavier with a video processing engine that can handle 8K (7680x4320) encode/decode.
