Tesla’s Model S sedan and Model X SUV are set to receive a big bump in computing power.
AMD Chief Executive Dr. Lisa Su announced in a keynote speech at the Computex tradeshow that the vehicles will feature the RDNA 2 GPU architecture. Tesla’s infotainment system will consist of an AMD Ryzen processor with its own integrated graphics paired with a discrete AMD RDNA 2 GPU.
“We’re really just getting started with RDNA 2. So you might be surprised to learn the next place you’ll find RDNA 2 graphics,” Su said. “It’s actually on the road, in the electric vehicle market with the new Tesla Model S and Model X,” she confirmed.”
Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk previously teased that the vehicles would pack PlayStation 5-level entertainment computing power. In fact, AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics are found in the PlayStation 5.
