Elon Musk teased that Tesla’s new Mannequin S Plaid can be able to operating Cyberpunk 2077 earlier this year, and he’s now demonstrated the automotive’s “PS5-level efficiency.” The refreshed Model S features a new Tesla infotainment system, powered by AMD’s Ryzen processor and a discrete AMD RDNA 2 GPU.
“There’s by no means been a automotive that has state-of-the-art computing expertise, state-of-the-art infotainment the place that is actually on the degree of a PlayStation 5,” stated Tesla CEO Elon Musk throughout a demo occasion final night time. “That is precise PlayStation 5-level efficiency… sure it will possibly run Cyberpunk. It’s excessive body charge, it can do 60fps with state-of-the-art video games.”
AMD revealed last week that it’s powering this new infotainment system in each the brand new Mannequin S and Mannequin X, with 10 teraflops of compute energy. That in itself is sort of similar to the ten.28 teraflops discovered on Sony’s PlayStation 5, though Tesla’s whole compute consists of each the built-in and discrete GPUs so it received’t be a full 10 teraflops for gaming alone.
We solely noticed a short demo of Cyberpunk 2077 operating at excessive body charges on the $130,000 Mannequin S Plaid throughout Tesla’s occasion, alongside a better have a look at the up to date UI on the infotainment system.
In separate demonstrations after the occasion, some Tesla followers have been in a position to get footage of what seems to be a Tesla-branded sport controller. It’s not clear if the controller, which mimics the form of the automotive’s steering wheel, is a dummy unit or not. It seems alongside an Xbox controller in a photograph printed by Reddit users (above), and movies appear to point out the Xbox controller getting used to play Cyberpunk 2077.
You is perhaps questioning why you’d want PS5-level gaming efficiency in your automotive, which the Technoking is blissful to reply. “If you consider the way forward for the place the automotive is commonly in autopilot or full self-driving mode, then leisure goes to change into rising necessary,” stated Musk. Till that’s a actuality, we’re hoping to see the parents at Digital Foundry benchmark a automotive operating the newest AAA video games towards highly effective PCs, the PS5, and the Xbox Collection X.
