Musk drops Nvidia, says Tesla has the best chip in the world

Tesla Inc. has started equipping its vehicles with a self-driving computer designed in-house and transitioned away from chips supplied by Nvidia Corp., with Elon Musk offering a big boast to explain why.

“At first it seems improbable -- how could it be that Tesla, who has never designed a chip before -- would design the best chip in the world?” the chief executive officer said Monday at an investor day focused on autonomous driving.

Nvidia disputed some of the claims Tesla made in its presentation, saying that the electric-car maker was comparing a whole computer’s performance with that of one chip. A full system based on multiple Nvidia chips would be more powerful than what Tesla showed off, the Santa Clara, California-based company said. Still, Nvidia did offer praise for Tesla, saying it had just “raised the bar for self-driving computers.”

Tesla shares closed down 3.8 percent, while Nvidia finished up 1.2 percent.

For all you techies here on MyBB, the youtube video has lots of technical detail:
Skip 1h9m until they come on stage - the first part is just the demo.

From a technical perspective, Tesla has most (all) of the bits needed (Hardware, Data/Fleet, software) and are way ahead.
I think Tesla is likely have level 4/5 driving within 12months - certainly way before anyone else.

Still, brand allegiance is a big thing for some of us. I'll stick with Nvidia. I love the brand and it has been a loyal product for me for the better part of 3 decades now. Nvidia has literally never let me down.

Good luck in trying to convince tesla to build you a car with Nvidia chips instead of theirs.

Que? Waymo had level 4 autonomy since 2017...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.timeinc.net/thedrive/tech/15848/waymo-is-already-running-cars-with-no-one-behind-the-wheel?source=dam

aymo announced Tuesday that it has been running Level 4 autonomous cars, with no human behind the wheel, in Arizona since mid-October.
This is just Musk playing catchup.
