Last year NVIDIA unveiled a supercomputer made for cars called the Drive PX, this year at CES 2015 they bring the Drive PX 2 with liquid-cooling and advance specs. It has 12 CPU cores and 8 teraflops of processing power, this is equivalent to several of NVIDIA’s most powerful graphics cards. This is all necessary NVIDIA claims as self-driving cars are being built. They need to be able to adapt to the ever changing driving conditions and obstacles it may have.
They are definitely not messing around when it comes to this as they’ve also created a learning platform called DIGITS. As of right now it is able to perform 40 billion operations at once which it will certainly need. We’ll have to see and hear more from this but it’s not off to a bad start considering Volvo has adopted the platform for their self-driving cars.
