NVIDIA is selling the Drive PX self-driving car computing system in May for $10,000 to developers, but the intelligence side of it is incredible. Compared to Dave, which is DARPA's autonomous vehicle, and while it is smart, the new Drive PX platform is magnitudes smarter. Drive PX is available of 630 million connections per second in its 'brain' versus the 3.1 million of Dave, and capturing 184 connections per second, versus 12. This provides 116 billion connectors per second for the Tegra X1-powered side of things, versus 38 million on Dave.
