NVIDIA’s made-for-autonomous-cars CPU is freaking powerful

NVIDIA debuted its Drive PX2 in-car supercomputer at CES in January, and now the company is showing off the Parker system on a chip powering it. The 256-core processor boasts up to 1.5 teraflops of juice for “deep learning-based self-driving AI cockpit systems, ” according to a post on NVIDIA’s blog . That’s in addition to 24 trillion deep learning operations per second it can churn out, too. For a perhaps more familiar touchpoint, NVIDIA says that Parker can also decode and encode 4K video streams running at 60FPS — no easy feat on its own. However, Parker is significantly less beefy than NVIDIA’s other deep learning initiative, the DGX-1 for Elon Musk’s OpenAI, which can hit 170 teraflops of performance. This platform still sounds more than capable of running high-end digital dashboards and keeping your future autonomous car shiny side up without a problem, regardless. On that front, NVIDIA says that in addition to the previously-announced partnership with Volvo (which puts Drive PX2 into the CX90), there are currently “80 carmakers, tier 1 suppliers and university research centers” using Drive PX2 at the moment.
