You shouldn’t take a name whereas driving, you shouldn’t textual content whereas driving, and also you definitely shouldn’t recreation whereas driving. And but, that’s precisely what you would possibly be capable of do with the Tesla Models X and S. As spotted by The Gamer, bazillionaire Tesla CEO and failed Deus Ex cosplayer Elon Musk all however mentioned as a lot this week.

On Monday, on the annual Computex commerce present, AMD CEO Lisa Su took the stage for the company’s keynote, the place she detailed what’s new and subsequent for the semiconductor firm. “You might be surprised to learn the next place you’ll find RDNA2 graphics. It’s actually on the road, in the electric vehicle market, with the new Tesla Model S and Model X,” Su mentioned, earlier than diving right into a string of technical phrases and jargon (although she did observe that these automobiles will hit “up to 10 teraflops of compute power”).

In (the place else?) a tweet yesterday, Musk mentioned that the Model S and X “have PS5-level entertainment computing power.”

This isn’t the primary time Musk, a famous memester, has claimed the Tesla Model S and X can help high-fidelity video games. In January, he tweeted that the Model S “can play Cyberpunk.” But it’s not at all times straightforward to take, at face worth, the phrase of somebody who, in March 2020, said that coronavirus instances within the United States can be “close to zero” by April 2020; who said that the inventory value of the corporate he leads is “too high imo”; who as soon as called a literal hero a “pedo guy.” So, yeah, the overall consensus round that Cyberpunk declare rightfully amounted to at least one massive collective suuure, bud.

But with affirmation straight from AMD—and, extra particularly, Su, who has curated a repute as a cautious, measured spokesperson for the model—the notion {that a} built-in leisure system for an electrical automobile might play a visually demanding role-playing recreation holds much more water. Hey, Cyberpunk 2077 won’t run so nice on PS4 and Xbox One, but it surely performs fairly effectively sufficient on next-gen consoles, which have considerably decrease computational firepower than what AMD is bringing to the Tesla desk. So if video games began being ported to Tesla’s in-car leisure programs, Cyberpunk might theoretically be amongst them.

But it in all probability nonetheless wouldn’t be a fantastic concept to really play it there. According to Car & Driver, you’re formally locked out of the system whereas the automotive is in movement, although Tesla fans occasionally traffic in workarounds, which might be distracting to the motive force even when deployed by passengers. According to figures cited by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicles are answerable for greater than 36,000 deaths nationally per 12 months.
