Tesla is reportedly retrofitting vehicles with its next-generation Hardware 3 computer that the company says will make autonomous driving possible.
Tesla owner Sofiaan Fraval shared on Twitter that his 2018 Model S P100D went into the the Tesla service center to replace a HEPA filter and came out with a new, more powerful computer.
“Performed the retrofit for the Full-Self Driving computer. Test drove and verified operation,” Tesla wrote in the service report.
Fraval’s Model S was previously equipped with Hardware 2.5 and MCU v2. His car build date is April 2018.
Fraval noted that the retrofits are only available for Model S and Model X vehicles for now and owners are not yet able to request the swap.
All new Tesla vehicles come equipped with the new hardware, which includes a Samsung-built chip that has 21-times the performance of the previous Tesla hardware powered by Nvidia.
Tesla has emphasized that the chip is purpose-built for enabling vehicle autonomy.
Anyone else received a retrofit?
