    I see bad times for the consumers. If Tesla is throwing away NVIDIA stuff then probably someone else will receive it as a gift :)
    Are you ready for a full tensor gpu?

    Bad Nvidia management, I'd say. Either too expensive or lacking in some other field, which usually is a maangement positioning thing.

    In my opinion all this hype over self-driving cars is premature. The only place we'll see self driving cars in the next 10-20 years is in places where they don't get snow.

    Imagine someone with IR/UV led light strips/panels where each led is controlled separately.
    You are not going to see light they emit, but those cameras on self driving cars...

    I don't see why this is bad for consumers. The fact Tesla actually has the resources (let alone the need) to make their own in-house processor is actually quite remarkable, and to me shows they're trying to give the best possible experience for their consumers.

    The only part I find a little confusing is why they went with Intel. But, perhaps this was because they wanted someone experienced (like Keller) to make a whole new custom architecture for them, but Keller currently works for Intel, so, they had to do the contract through Intel.

    It's an ASIC - of course it's going to be 21x more powerful. If we used Tesla's computer for gaming purposes, I'm sure it'd be 21x slower than the Nvidia platform they used.

    Not really a news as it was acted some month (years) ago...

    About those bashing NVidia:Tesla want the finest, nearly every other company found NVidia enough powerfull for them... NVidia jump from Tesla to nearly everything that have wheels at global scale... not a so bad deal for NVidia.

    Anyway, Tesla have to remove the system to be allowed to be driven in here. So for now i don't care :) i will get my Zero Motorcycle in a few, 2 wheel are just fine in electric.

    IIRC, autopilot issue is due to EU and requirement to approve each car model separately... which EU did not. I am not sure about details.

    Typical Tesla move. They waste time in-house trying to reinvent the wheel on things they should be outsourcing. Look at their seat fiasco to get an idea what I'm talking about and why the big companies farm many items out to specialty companies.

    As to whether we are "almost there" with self driving cars? No. Not even close. The Tesla has fancy cruise control. No consumer grade cars have anything remotely close to full autonomy. They have so many glaring issues to overcome that it looks like it will be at least a decade or 2 before we see anything we can buy, if ever.

    All these cars can do is drive in easy situations. Throw them a real curve ball and they typically fail.

    You would think an AI company would have saw that coming.
