The new NVIDIA Atlan SoC is a new AI-enabled chip for autonomous cars of the future, with NVIDIA pushing a huge 1000 trillion operations per second (TOPS). NVIDIA is using its next-gen in-house ARM-based Grace CPU, as well as its next-gen Ampere Next GPU technology for its new Atlan SoC for future autonomous vehicles.

NVIDIA is using the new LPDDR5X memory technology that offers double the bandwidth, and 10x the energy efficiency over the previous-gen LPDDR4X standard. We are told to expect Atlan SoC sampling to begin in 2023, while the chips will come off the production line and into the new waves of autonomous vehicles in 2025 and beyond.

Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA explained: "The transportation industry needs a computing platform that it can rely on for decades. The software investment is too immense to repeat for each car. NVIDIA DRIVE is the most advanced AI and AV computing platform, with rich global software and developer ecosystems, and architecturally compatible for generations".
