Tesla Design Y Switches From Intel to AMD Ryzen Processors

According to Brinkwire, the Tesla Model Y is switching CPU versions from an Intel-branded chip to an AMD Ryzen processor for the car’s infotainment technique. For now, the new AMD-equipped Model Y’s are only accessible for prospective buyers in China.

Around the past many years, Tesla has labored with all a few significant semiconductor makers, together with Nvidia, Intel, and AMD. Tesla at first utilised Nvidia SoC’s in its more mature autos, but switched three several years back to Intel Atom CPUs for the infotainment centers in Model 3 and more recent variations of the Model X and Design S.

Tesla has now switched the Model S and X to AMD’s chips, and now seems to be completing the transition with the Product Y. Sadly, we do not know why Tesla decided to swap groups to AMD, which at first glance seems to be a strange shift given AMD’s reliance on TSMC for semiconductor source.
