AMD’s technologies are entering new markets, delivering high-end performance from mobile SoCs to high-end electric vehicles. At Computex 2021, AMD has confirmed that their Ryzen embedded processors and Radeon RDNA 2 graphics will be used within the newly designed infotainment systems in Tesla’s new Model S and Model X.

Tesla has already confirmed that their new Model S will contain a 10 TFLOPS gaming chip, delivering performance levels that are competitive with Sony’s PlayStation 5 console. This means that Tesla’s latest vehicles are powerful enough to play modern AAA games like Cyberpunk 2077, bringing AAA gaming to the open road. 

These hardware specifications make Tesla’s new Model S and Model X vehicles next-generation (current-generation?) gaming platforms, offering users support for the latest gaming features like Hardware Accelerated Ray Tracing Support, VRS Support and more. Please note that these gaming-ready components are only utilised within Tesla’s infotainment system, having no role within Tesla’s autopilot system or other semi-autonomous driving features. 

Gamers will be able to use the 17-inch 2200×1300 screen on Tesla’s new Model S to play games using Tesla’s arcade using wireless gamepads. At this time, it is unknown how gaming will work on the vehicles integrated systems, or how many games will be playable through the vehicle. 

Outside of gaming, Tesla’s new Model S boasts some impressive specs, offering users an estimated range of 390 miles, the ability to go from 0-60 (mph) in 1.99 seconds and a drive train that can deliver 1,020 horsepower.
