CES 2016 - NVIDIA held its CES 2016 press conference, announcing its new Drive PX 2 system. The predecessor to NVIDIA's in-car computer is liquid-cooled and as powerful as 150 of Apple's MacBook Pros.
Drive PX 2 features 12 CPU cores and 8 TFLOPS of processing power. When it comes to the GPU side of things, it features NVIDIA's next-gen Pascal GPU baked on the 14nm process. NVIDIA claims that Drive PX 2 has the same processing power as six Titan X video cards, which is saying quite a lot.
All of the horsepower that NVIDIA's Drive PX 2 is capable of is required to pull in all of the stuff around it - people, cars, and everything else. It has a bunch of maps and sensors that it needs to deal with on-the-fly, with NVIDIA cramming in a liquid-cooled, 250W system powered by Pascal.
NVIDIA announced that Volvo has signed on to use Drive PX 2, but we're sure that other carmakers will jump in on the Drive PX 2 stuff in the very near future.
