GTC 2015 NVIDIA Powered Cars On Show




/ 5 years ago

GTC 2015: Normally I’d write something insightful but for this article, it’s a really simple one that involves some heavily induced eye-candy for you. As a member of GTC, the first step for me was to check into my hotel and I was even greeted with a special key card for the hotel room, branded in event gloryness.

After checking in, I made my way to the exhibition centre, to pick up my pass and straight away could see people from all walks of life. This included fellow journalists, analysts, manufacturers and much more all queuing up.

In the entrance of the hall was a nice little showcase of cars that utilise NVIDIA technology or are sponsored in some shape or form by NVIDIA. This included the epic Renovo Coupe which is an all American, all electric sports car which simply looks like a vintage car that would be basic inside, but it’s anything but that with the NVIDIA Tegra X1 at the heart of it. This gives the car the NVIDIA Drive Studio which features an 11.6″ touchscreen and all-digital cluster.

Giving a whopping 500 horsepower and a 0-60 MPH time of 3.4 seconds, it’s not exactly sluggish. We managed to get a bit more information from Renovo including OTA updates and cloud access, but details on delivery is still a bit sketchy, but should be very soon indeed.

Also featured was the Lamborghini Aventador which once again is powered by NVIDIA. It’s not an all-electric car, but the instrument clusters and infotainment system are all courtesy of NVIDIA’s mobile processor.

Lastly, it wouldn’t be an NVIDIA event featuring electric cars and the like without the Tesla Model S P85D so without further ado, here is the 600BHP monster in all it’s glory and every time I see one, I still contemplate buying one, so I’m going to stop talking there before I talk myself into it.
