New Jetson....
#1
oh moma

no info on where to buy yet, but oh moma, this is amazing. 
I've been after a jetson for a while but they are so expensive, this expected price brings it into my sub $100 range so can't wait to get my hands on one. The CPU is awesome, but that GPU, oh man that GPU.

You can purchase the Jetson Nano from the NVIDA website or one of their Partners: Arrow, Seeed or SparkFun.

I can't seem to get it from Nvidia,(America only) but will see if I can get one of them from the Partners, but it does bump the cost up over my limit, I have a few contacts at Nvidia

I was able to download, compile and run the OpenGL-ES 3.0 code from the OpenGL-ES 3.0 Programming Guide and it seems to run just run.

This is what I did .

1. Download the code to the Nano.
Click on Sample Code to go the GitHub repo for the Example Code
http://opengles-book.com/

Click on the GitHub link at the following
http://opengles-book.com/samplecode.html

2. Either run git or download the Zip file.
Git Example:
$ git clone https://github.com/danginsburg/opengles3-book.git

3. Change directory to 'opengles3-book'
$ cd opengles3-book

4. To build the samples, cd to the Common folder and run cmake.
$ cd Common

$ cmake ../

This should create the appropriate make files to build the samples and a message similar to the following show appear.

'Build files have been written to: /home/user_name/development/opengles3-book/Common'

5. From the same Common folder, run make.

$ make

6. If there were not errors, the samples should be under the Common folder.
Ex: Change Directory to Chapter_2 for the Hello_Triangle example.
$ cd Chapter_2/Hello_Triangle

7. Run the example.

./Hello_Triangle


Also, here is an interesting review where the Dolphin Emulator is used to test the Game Graphics of the Jetson Nano.

It does seem like a very nice board, not generally aimed at the usual SBC market, but an extreme example of what an SBC could do. It is outside my self imposed price limit (import taxes) but I'll try a few avenues to get hold of one. I would like to try and use it for its AI/multi core properties as well as its amazing graphics.

Awesome! I will be interesting to see your comparison with the other boards.
