Tesla is working with AMD to build an autonomous driving chip, according to a report from CNBC.
The report stated that Tesla has received samples of the processor and is currently running tests on it.
Working with AMD to build a self-driving processor will allow Tesla to rely less on other companies – although its new chip will reportedly be based on AMD intellectual property.
Global Foundries CEO Sanjay Jha reportedly said that Tesla was working directly with fabricators, and GlobalFoundries has a wafer supply agreement with AMD until 2020.
Tesla aims to deliver fully-autonomous driving capabilities in 2019.
