NVIDIA’s next single-board computer will offer 6X the processing power of its predecessor, while keeping the same small size and form factor. Just don’t expect the new NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin  it to have a Raspberry Pi-like affordable price tag. NVIDIA positions its Jetson modules as development platforms for robotics, autonomous machines, and other embedded applications and the previous-gen NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier dev kit sold for $1099 at launch, and $699 more recently.

In other recent tech news from around the web, LPDDR5X RAM is coming and it’s faster, and more energy efficient than LPDDR5. And the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which was released yesterday, comes with an unexpected bonus – a speed bump for recent Raspberry Pi 4 computers.

NVIDIA Announces Jetson AGX Orin single-board computer [AnandTech]

NVIDIA’s Jetson AGX Orin is a single-board computer with 12 ARM Cortex-A78AE CPU cores, 2048 Ampere CUDA cores, 32GB of LPDDR5 memory, and 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage, with up to 200 TOPS of AI performance. Coming in early 2022, but no word on pricing yet.

Bullseye bonus: 1.8GHz Raspberry Pi 4 [Raspberry Pi]

Some recent Raspberry Pi 4 devices (including the 8GB model and some newer 2GB and 4GB versions) now support a 1.8 GHz turbo-mode clock speed with the newest build of Raspberry Pi OS, up from 1.5 GHz. You can tell if you have a model that supports this feature by checking for the dedicated switch-mode power supply, which is circled in white in the image below.

WSATools has been removed from the Microsoft Store [Simone Franco]

WSATools, a free utility that makes it easy to sideload Android apps on Windows 11 PCs with the Windows Subsystem for Android, has been removed from the Microsoft Store for unknown reasons. Update: It’s back… but the developer’s really sure why, or why it was removed in the first place. 

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for alternatives, there are a few open source options hosted at GitHub which do the same thing – offer a GUI for sideloading Android apps, no command line required.

  1. The RPi4b Bullseye boost really doesn’t mean anything if you are already boost overclocked to 2.0GHz. I don’t know anyone running at stock speeds on the RPi4b.
    I tried Bullseye, but have to wait for them to fix vnc-server as the lag is unusable. I was glad to see in the announcement comments all the vnc-server complaints… to know that I am not the only one running it headless.

  2. That Nvidia Jetson AGX Orin is one mother of all computers.

    Using Samsung’s 8nm node (same as Intel’s latest 10nm, TSMCs early 7nm) it looks efficient. Not to mention the Cortex-A78 processor, with x12 Cores it’s quite powerful. The Ampere iGPU with 2048 CU is about equal to an RTX-3050 (RX6500 ?). The Shared RAM with 32GB is more than enough for the Graphics, AI, and Applications, and it’s pretty fast DDR5 stuff too. I’m not too miffed about the NPU, but it’s a bonus. Overall, it’s a good competitor to Apple’s M1 Pro chipset.

    Would make for a killer Tablet, Laptop, Mini Desktop, or Project Board. The only thing bad is it’s stupid USD $900+ price.

  3. Benign explanation: Developer noticed something was wrong.
    Explanation involving the kind of idiocy I’ve come to expect: After seeing that ridiculous screed by that guy at Apple, Microsoft couldn’t possibly be caught endorsing sideloading because even though that’s how windows has always worked, Apple said it was evil therefore too many sheeple think it is to risk keeping it. That or someone realized enabling sideloading means enabling the installation of client apps for “evil” websites.
