    There will be NO HW4 upgrade for HW3 owners

    2 points: I think as far as having a retrofit for HW3 to HW4, there will be pressure from the the large pool of current owners and we still might see an upgrade path but it will be quite expensive to do it since Elon talked about if it made sense economically. But, for me it is really about...

    [UK centred discussion] The cat is out of the bag. True FSD will never happen for cars below HW4

    I will continue to enjoy HW3 in my Model S with all the software updates to improve FSD which is currently ongoing. I would be interested in a new Tesla when it has Level 4/5 full self driving autonomy where I do not have to pay attention at all while it is driving. HW 4, 5, etc will drive more...

    Retrofit for Steam

    If it is that simple I hope Tesla will change its mind and allow the retrofit. I want all the features that are designed into my Model S.

    Retrofit for Steam

    One wrinkle I recently noticed... the car will not download new games when I exit the car and close the door. It resumes the download once I return. Once the games are downloaded everything works fine.

    You were right, the MCU2 was replaced and everything looks great.

    Retrofit for Steam

    I just got my car back from Tesla service. They replaced the MCU2 with "MSX car computer fused(1637790-S0-F)". The artifacts (pixels) are gone, steam downloads in the background and everything looks great ! It was bad video RAM that caused the artifacts.

    Yes.. artifacts only appear when steam is running.

    Retrofit for Steam

    After my steam retrofit here are screenshots of the artifacts on my screen when steam is running. Note they occur in the menu items but not the game. I am taking the car in this week to get this fixed.

    Retrofit for Steam

    It turns out the screen artifacts I have when I open steam is not normal . Tesla service will troubleshoot it later this week. There are no artifacts once the steam games start though.

    Retrofit for Steam

    I should say that if I leave the car and close the door steam turns off and stops downloading the game.

    Retrofit for Steam

    I picked up my car. I added a samsung T7 2 Tb SSD drive and a PS5 controller. Steam has many artifacts on the menu portion, but inside the games artifacts are gone (for the most part).. Brutal Legend had artifacts at first, then was OK when restarting later. Sonic was fine. You have to...

    Retrofit for Steam

    Good news... the Costa Mesa. CA Tesla service center was able to get steam to work! This was their first time doing the steam retrofit.. so it was a learning curve for them. They are currently uploading steam. I will pick up the car on Saturday. They had to go to revision F of the computer...

    Retrofit for Steam

    I have a Model S refresh picked up Dec 2021. Love the car. I have added features to make it a car I want to keep.. So far, I have FSD, a full 360 steering wheel, a hitch for my bikes and now steam. I am hoping for a tilt screen and hardware 4 when that becomes available.

    Retrofit for Steam

    Good point. We will see if a HW4 upgrade will be available. Thinking about it.. there will probably be a charge for it since they do currently provide what they promised ( Full self driving beta) on HW3.
  30. L

    Retrofit for Steam

    With hardware 4 coming (along with higher rez cameras and high rez radar), that will require an FSD computer upgrade. If the MCU also needs to be upgraded for HW4 then those who paid for FSD would get steam game capability at no cost. We might know when the cybertruck comes out since it is...

    FSD beta is now available to everyone who has paid for it with no safety score requirement

    The Safety score is required for Tesla insurance outside of California. They calculate your insurance rate based on your "real time driving behavior" aka Safety score. California does not use this method, it uses points against you on your driving record.

    What FSD improvements are needed?
