Tesla Model Y Switches From Intel to AMD Ryzen Processors

According to Brinkwire, the Tesla Model Y is switching CPU models from an Intel-branded chip to an AMD Ryzen processor for the car’s infotainment system. For now, the new AMD-equipped Model Y’s are only available for buyers in China. 

Over the past several years, Tesla has worked with all three major semiconductor manufacturers, including Nvidia, Intel, and AMD. Tesla originally used Nvidia SoC’s in its older vehicles, but switched three years ago to Intel Atom CPUs for the infotainment centers in Model 3 and newer versions of the Model X and Model S.

Tesla has already switched the Model S and X to AMD’s chips, and now appears to be completing the transition with the Model Y. Unfortunately, we don’t know why Tesla decided to switch teams to AMD, which at first glance appears to be a strange move given AMD’s reliance on TSMC for semiconductor supply.
