See below benchmarks for details on performance and power-efficiency data of Hailo-8™ AI Processor. 
  • Xavier NX results are using batch=8 (while Hailo-8 and Jetson Nano are using batch=1) and that Jetson Nano is limited to FP16 (while Hailo-8 and Xavier NX are INT8). NVIDIA results for batch=1 and INT8, respectively, are expected to be lower.

* MobileNet_v3 – the benchmarked model flavor is MobileNet_v3 Large Minimalistic
** Figure for processing 8 simultaneous video streams
