Tesla began producing Model Y and Model 3 electric cars with AMD Ryzen processors and new graphics processors. At the same time, it is reported that owners of previously released electric cars will be able to make hardware upgrades to their cars in the second half of 2022.
After releasing new versions of the Tesla Model S and Model X last year, the company confirmed that they use a state-of-the-art infotainment center with Playstation 5-level performance. A little later, AMD announced that Tesla was using next-generation Ryzen processors along with a discrete graphics chip (GPU).
Last November, it became known that the Chinese Model Y Performance comes with AMD Ryzen processors and AMD graphics processors. The new hardware was installed on the cars without additional announcements from Tesla. Then U.S. customers also said the Model 3 got the updated hardware. The parts catalog for Europe indicated that the new components would also be installed on cars for that region.
The announcement was well-received by customers, who are expecting delivery of the new cars. However, existing owners of cars with old computers will definitely have the opportunity to replace their existing equipment with the new version. This is reported by Drive Tesla Canada.
Tesla has previously upgraded infotainment system equipment for $1,500 to $2,000, depending on the version of autopilot installed in the car. Perhaps for those wishing to install an AMD Ryzen processor and AMD GPU, the price will be higher.
