Tesla already allows you to enjoy some games in the car itself, such as Buggy Racing 2 or Cuphead, but Elon Musk, CEO of the manufacturer, went so far as to say that it would be possible to play The Witcher 3 or Cyberpunk 2077 on the Model S or on the Model X. Now it will be possible soon thanks to the new agreement that the car manufacturer has established with AMD.

AMD will place its processors and graphics so Tesla owners can take advantage of a 10 teraflop gaming platform, a revelation made during Cumputex 2021, which indicates that Tesla’s new car infotainment system will feature an AMD processor Ryzen in conjunction with an AMD RDNA 2 GPU.

“So, in fact, we have an AMD Ryzen APU powering the infotainment system in both cars, as well as an RDNA2-based GPU that kicks in when running AAA games, providing up to 10 teraflops of computing power. We look forward to offering gamers a great platform for AAA games, ”said AMD CEO Lisa Su.

Tesla to have gaming platform with AMD support on Model

And if you combine that information with another news that AMD revealed today, we can get the idea that the new platform in Tesla’s “10 teraflop” cars could, in theory, be slightly inferior to Sony’s Playstation 5.

In January, leaker Patrick Schur published a Tesla block diagram that chose an AMD Navi 23 GPU specifically for Tesla’s new vehicles, and today AMD announced the new Radeon 6800M, 6700M and 6600M laptop graphics chips – the weakest of them just happens to use Navi 23.

As reported today, the Radeon 6600M chip comes with 28CUs and 1792 shader units – compared to 36CUs and about 2,304 RDNA 2 GPU shader units on Sony’s PlayStation 5, which also claims to be a 10-teraflop gaming device.

So, not being exactly the same, we can see the differences between a Playstation 5 and the “new” Tesla, so in this comparison, we can see that it is a little inferior, however, it is nevertheless impressive that in a car we have a capacity game that is even close to a new generation console.

The platform will be based on Linux, although it is not necessarily a benefit when it comes to gaming performance, however, Google Stadia cloud games also use 10 performance teraflops from their AMD GPUs, and we can say that it is a excellent performance, obviously several games are far from the quality of an Xbox or a PC.

We can also mention that the first cars that already have the new gaming platform supported by AMD will be on the Model S Plaid, which will start to be delivered from next June 10th. We hope that when the first cars with this system reach the market, we will also start watching the first videos of how the platform behaves with these games more pulls.
