Both the Jetson Nano and Raspberry Pi 4 are new for 2019, and both have powerful specs. This review compares the two to see which is useful for what kind of project. Obviously the Nano costs a lot more, and has a huge edge in GPU as meant for AI projects.
The devices compared are the:
- Raspberry Pi 4B with 4GB of memory - $55 - this is a new feature for the Raspberry Pi line, the ability to buy with varying levels of memory - see Raspberry Pi team amps up popular Linux single-board-computer with Raspberry Pi 4 model B
- Jetson Nano compute module inserted into carrier board - $99 - also with 4GB of memory
For full details see the attached video. The screen shots here were developed by the Explaining Video presenter, and there is a lot more details inside the video.
He notes at the end that the Jeston Nano team is evaluating how to integrate ffmpeg support with the Nano GPU. If that is implemented then tools like Plex or Kodi would scream on the Jetson Nano.
The video does not attempt to compare performance with AI or Machine Learning tasks. Of course the Jetson Nano is primarily positioned as a Machine Learning workhorse.
