Well, now we know what is inside of it thanks to AMD's show-stealing Computex 2021 keynote. AMD will be providing Tesla with a custom RDNA 2 GPU for the new Model S and Model X, which is the same GPU technology inside of Microsoft's Xbox Series X/S and Sony's PlayStation 5 next-gen consoles.

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su herself confirmed the news during the Computex 2021 all-virtual keynote, with the new Tesla's packing new semi-custom APUs with Ryzen + Radeon technologies infused into the infotainment system.

Inside of Tesla's upgraded Model S and Model X vehicles will be a large 17-inch Cinematic display with a native 2200 x 1300 resolution. The infotainment system is based on the Tesla Gaming Arcade platform, with gaming and media flowing from the system.

A few months ago we heard that Tesla would be using a semi-custom APU based on the Navi 23 GPU, which would have 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit memory bus with up to 224GB/sec of memory bandwidth. This means the Tesla 2021 Model S/X vehicles will have the same compute power as Microsoft's slower Xbox Series S console.

Tesla's built-in system will have enough power to run CD PROJEKT RED's hot mess of a game: Cyberpunk 2077, too.
