Tesla says it’s dumping Nvidia chips for a homebrew alternative
Tesla is creating its own chips optimized for machine learning, CEO Elon Musk said during a call with investors on Wednesday. Musk acknowledged the rumored project last December but is now providing more details.
“We’ve been in semi-stealth mode for the last two to three years,” Musk said.
During that time, Tesla created what Musk described as “the world’s most advanced computer specifically for autonomous operation.”
