Timeline for Dash/CPU update?

Have there been any rumours or information on when the model S may see an increase in processing power for the central dash/touchscreen? Is this maybe already happening?

I'm mostly curious if I were to buy a new 70D, am I getting the same (now ~3year old) cpu running the car? I've heard a few complaints of sluggishness with the nav system, etc.

The Model X will almost certainly have a new CPU/GPU, releasing a car in 2015 with a Tegra 3 would be ridiculous.

The question is when will that make it's way to the Model S. I'm hoping they let us know on the 29th.

Around April of next year.

Actually, to clarify, around the time of the Model 3 reveal. Perhaps a little before, but most certainly not after. The product lines don't really overlap so updating the S won't hurt possible 3 sales.

Since they cost about the same, I would not think the Model S sales VS Model X sales really matter much.

The other thing to consider, is if 7.0 was re-written specifically to decrease laggy performance on this platform. If so, it could extend the useful life of the current config.

It will definitely help with older cars.

But launching a new Model in 2015 based on a 4 year old chip (the Tegra 3 came out November 2011), would be completely crazy.
