Tesla Infotainment Systems To Now Use Intel Rather Than Nvidia Tech

Tesla’s infotainment systems will now be powered by computer chips supplied by Intel, rather than by Nvidia, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

Tesla’s infotainment systems will now be powered by computer chips supplied by Intel, rather than by Nvidia, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

Considering how chummy Tesla and Nvidia have seemed to be in recent times, the news is fairly notable. We did report not that long ago that Tesla was apparently shifting towards use of AMD tech with its self-driving systems and away from Nvidia tech.

That being the case, presumably, there has been some sort of falling out that has occurred — whether for reasons of technological capacity, supply limitations, or politics of various kinds.

Reuters provides more: “Tesla’s Model 3 and new versions of its other cars will get the new Intel processing modules, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. Tesla and Intel declined to comment and Nvidia did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

It doesn’t seem too likely that we are going to ever get a clear answer on the reason for the change, but it makes for an interesting question.
