AMD CEO Lisa Su revealed at the Computex 2021 yesterday that the gaming capability in the new design refresh Tesla Model S and Model X is powered by the AMD RDNA 2-based graphics processing unit (GPU).

The supplier of the GPU behind the new Tesla Model S/X 10 teraflops of gaming power was unknown until now.

According to Lisa, there are two AMD processors in the new Model S and Model X cars. The AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) runs the normal operations of the Tesla Media Control Unit (MCU / infotainment system) — like maps, vehicle display rendering, camera displays, music, and other touchscreen functions.

As soon as the user starts gaming, the AMD RDNA 2 GPU kicks in to smoothly render the next-gen games like the Witcher III Wild Hunt that Tesla featured in the new Model S and Model X promotions.

Xbox X|S and Playstation 5 are also powered by the AMD RDNA 2 GPU architecture — this makes the next-gen Tesla in-car entertainment on par with the latest gaming consoles. Such a radical shift in the in-car entertainment segment was not anticipated by the traditional automakers.

AMD RDNA™ 2 architecture is the foundation for next-generation PC gaming graphics, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and X consoles. The groundbreaking RDNA architecture was first introduced at E3 2019, and since then has continuously evolved to spearhead the next generation of high-performance gaming. It’s the DNA that powers your games, the DNA that brings your games to life, the DNA that keeps evolving.

So you might be surprised to learn the next place you’ll find RDNA 2 graphics. It’s actually on the road, in the electric vehicle market, the new Tesla Model S and Model X.

So we have an embedded Ryzen APU powering the infotainment system of both cars, as well as a discreet RDNA 2-based GPU that kicks in when running AAA games, providing up to 10 teraflops of computing power.

We’re thrilled to working with Tesla to bring the power of Ryzen and Radeon to their newest flagship cars and looking forward to giving gamers a great new platform for AAA gaming.

AMD CEO Lisu Su said at Computex 2021

The first deliveries of the new design refresh Tesla Model S and Model X Plaid are set to happen at an event at the Tesla Fremont car factory on 10th June. This will mark the new era of reviews of both of these cars especially in terms of performance (0-60 in just 1.99 secs) and interior redesign.
