    so care to provide replacement commentary based on the rest of the post? Do you think the chip is slower/faster under certain (you decide) assumptions? Don't look too much into the NNs, those appear to be a straight compilation of regular production NNs they have (They clearly just compile it all from the same sources producign hw2, hw2.5 and now hw3 binaries), so we cannot conclude how the development branches go.

    Seems like you are disappointed that AP 3.0 is using cortex-A72 cores. I don’t see why they would use anything else. Successors to A72 are power optimized for use in phones and A72 is almost 2x better than A57 in current AP2.x

    This makes perfect sense: getting EAP to work on HW3 cars will be a priority at this point.

    Are you sure you are not seeing some kind of leftover files for an old prototyping board?

    Also, there will be other shiny new things in the HW3 that will boost the performance of the NN, alongside with the camera agnostic architecture you were mentioning.

    Quit criticizing @jimmy_d. Rather than attacking, I'd prefer you argued effectively for why you interpret the data differently. Let us decide who is credible.

    I'd wager we won't see it until three months after HW3 releases in productions cars, but definitely in six.

    I'm in no way attacking him, giving an honest critique. But okay I will make an in-depth analysis when i get off work.

    Amazing write up. How soon do you think before it’s released?

    While I don't have the actual board to see what's running and what's not and it's possible the "a72 started" references are somewhat stale from previous revisions, I am 100% sure the exynos SoC is still in use because UFS, USB, I2C and PCIEx drivers are only present for that particular platform

    Historically (hw2.5, mcu2) it's been 3-5 months from first appearances of such stuff in public firmwares to all cars on production line.

    shiny.sky is likely on the autopilot team, dropping in to see how good of hackers you all are

    Is there any evidence of a new custom radar?

    Could HW3 have a next gen / unreleased Samsung SOC that uses the same drivers?

    It's really easy to be a secret Tesla employee on the Internet where nobody asks for any proof ;)

    Who knows. But this strikes me as somewhat unlikely.

    Google has been working on soli radar - radar sensing utilizing neural networks. Maybe with more power Tesla can do something similar with car’s radar.

    Why does Fred keeps pushing that Andrej was behind googleNet when he wasn't?

    "Tesla’s Director of AI and Autopilot Vision, Andrej Karpathy, was behind the GoogLeNet neural net when he worked at Google."

    Does journalism even exist nowaways? Why is anything tesla related filled with so many myths and fables? Disgusting!
