Tesla making own chip for its autonomous cars

Electric carmaker Tesla Inc is working with AMD to develop its own artificial intelligence chip for self-driving cars CNBC reported on Wednesday citing a source familiar with the matter

At a GlobalFoundaries conference on Wednesday, the CEO, Sanjay Jha, said that Tesla was an example of a company that is working with fabricators. This erroneous report stems from a comment GloFlo's CEO made on stage on Wednesday at the fab's annual get-together in San Jose. GlobalFoundries manufacturers these chips and has a wafer supply agreement with AMD until 2020.

"As we develop these new technologies, we are also seeing a big shift in the business model and the foundry business". Tesla is viewed as a leader in all things autonomous and any architectural move from the company is not done willy-nilly.

Several Pentagon officials say Mattis was not signaling that tactical nuclear weapons are likely to be placed in South Korea. The comments came as US President Donald Trump spoke by telephone with South Korean President Moon Jae.

It's likely, however, that AMD and Tesla are working together based exclusively on some hires that Tesla has been making.

Interestingly, Tesla's head of AI, Jim Keller, is an ex-AMD CPU ar- chitect having designed Zen (used in Ryzen and EPYC), and has surrounded himself at Tesla with several key AMD players, which may have been the initial reason Tesla is aligning themselves with AMD. The 7nm-based Navi is scheduled to launch in 2019, the same year Musk promised to deliver Tesla's first-ever autonomous auto with self-driving capabilities. Since that time, AMD has continued to show strength across multiple sectors.

News of Tesla working with Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ:AMD) over self-driving cars has thrown the latter company into focus with analysts and the general artificial intelligence (AI) market under the spotlight.

While Tesla plans to decrease their reliance on other tech companies, they will rely on #AMD's expertise and its intellectual property when it comes to the development of the said AI chip, according to the source.

As per the report, Tesla is now digging its hands into AMD, the semiconductor Company. Tesla is now into developing its own chip for its automatic vehicles. We'll keep pressing on the matter, among others.
