Nvidia Tegra processors to power the infotainment, navigation and instrument-cluster systems in the Tesla Model S
Nvidia announced today that Nvidia Tegra processors will power the infotainment, navigation and instrument-cluster systems in the Tesla Model S, the first sedan built from the ground up as an electric vehicle. Built around the driver, the Model S is the premium sedan, evolved. Its infotainment system features a 17-inch touch-screen center console — the largest display ever in a car — providing vivid 3D graphics.
In addition to its unrivaled graphics capability, the Tegra processor provides exceptional energy efficiency, a critically important feature for electric cars. One processor will be used to power the infotainment and navigation systems, and another for the instrument cluster.
