When Tesla announced an update to the Model S and Model X in January, it stated that the new infotainment system could provide up to 10 teraflops of computing power.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, said, “For example, you can play The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 on the 10 teraflops console that comes with the Model S and Model X.

In recent years, AMD has seen growth from massive sales of new chipsets for PCs, laptops, and servers. The company now appears to have earned well-known clients outside of the IT industry.

AMD processors and graphics chips are used in the recently updated infotainment systems of the Tesla Model S and Model X electric cars. It should go on sale within two weeks.

Tesla and AMD:

In the Computex 2021 keynote, AMD officially announced that the new Tesla infotainment system includes an AMD Ryzen processor and AMD RDNA 2 GPU.

AMD said: We have AMD Ryzen that runs the infotainment system in both cars. Plus RDNA2 based discrete GPU.

RDNA2 based discrete GPUs can be used when playing high power games.

Therefore, it can save up to 10 teraflops of computing power if required.

This is similar to how some laptops handle both integrated and discrete graphics.

Therefore, it is logical for Tesla to use this method. Since you don't want the high-performance GPU to be running all the time, the battery life is reduced.

In theory, this means that the functionality of the infotainment system may be somewhat inferior to that of Sony's PS5.

The upgraded Tesla also has two screens: a 17-inch screen in the front row and a smaller screen in the rear row for passengers.

For example, Tesla owners can play premium video games in their cars. Please also take a closer look at the map and other items.

AMD said, "The drive to make a car's propulsion system as powerful as a complex computer is part of the mainstream in computer technology."
