NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang revealed during his CES 2018 press event that the first samples of our Xavier processors, initially announced a little more than a year ago, are being delivered to customers this quarter.
It's built around a custom 8-core CPU, a new 512-core Volta GPU, a new deep learning accelerator, new computer vision accelerators and new 8K HDR video processors. And with our unified architecture, all previous NVIDIA DRIVE software development carries over and runs.
While the technical details are complex, the story is simple: DRIVE Xavier puts more processing power to work using less energy, delivering 30 trillion operations per second while consuming just 30 watts. It's 15 times more energy efficient than our previous generation architecture.
