You can’t drive a PS5 but you can play Cyberpunk 2077 in a Tesla… Apparently
It seems Tesla cars now have the graphical oomph to run high-end games like Cyberpunk 2077.
If you’re the kind of person that can spend hours comparing PC specs with various game requirements, look no further. It has become evident this week that new Tesla cars have about as much graphical rendering power as the new generation of consoles.
During a talk on Monday at the Computex Trade Show, CEO of the computer hardware company AMD, Lisa Su said, “You might be surprised to learn the next place you’ll find RDNA2 graphics. It’s actually on the road, in the electric vehicle market, with the new Tesla Model S and Model X.” RDNA standing for Radeon DNA, AMD’s high-performance range of graphics cards.
She also pointed out that the chips inside new Model S and X cars are capable of up to 10 teraflops. To put that into context, the new Xbox Series X is capable of 12 teraflops, this is essentially a unit of measurement to calculate how many operations a chip is able of performing in a second.
Adding to Su’s quote was Elon Musk who, as has become his trademark, took to Twitter saying, “new Model S & X have PS5 level entertainment computing power.” This tweet comes just months after Elon was quoted as saying people could play Cyberpunk in their Model S cars.
As ever with Elon’s tweets, this statement is to be taken with a grain of salt seeing as he hasn’t got the best track record on the app. That being said, if the new cars do indeed feature such powerful graphical chips in their infotainment systems, it’s technically not wrong to say they could run graphically demanding games such as the famously buggy title.
