For those who can’t discover a PS5 or Xbox Sequence X, how about an $80,000 electrical sports activities automobile with comparable efficiency? Tesla simply introduced its refreshed Model S today, and a brand new “Plaid” powertrain isn’t its solely efficiency enhancement — the corporate claims the automobile can now compete with next-gen gaming consoles, because of a 10-teraflop gaming pc that can apparently include each new mannequin.
Assuming that refers to GPU efficiency and Tesla isn’t wildly exaggerating, that may certainly be aggressive with a PS5 or Xbox Sequence X, which provide 10.28 teraflops and 12 teraflops of uncooked GPU energy respectively. There’s more to performance than teraflops, though.
Now, you would possibly ask: who’s going to place a sport in your automobile that may really reap the benefits of a gaming PC? For that, I need to ask you to look intently on the photographs above and beneath. Behold: CD Projekt’s acclaimed sword-slinging journey The Witcher 3, simply as Musk foretold:
Wish to play The Witcher sport in your Tesla? (you may already watch the present on Tesla Netflix theater)

Listed below are a lot of issues we nonetheless have no idea:
- Is The Witcher 3 really coming to Tesla, and when? (We’ve requested CD Projekt.)
- Are you able to play it on the 17-inch, 2200 x 1300-pixel most important show, or solely on the 8-inch second row show? Or each?
- Will you want a brand new controller? (Tesla says it has “wi-fi controller compatibility”) however that’s all we all know.
- Who’s making the GPU? (We’ve pinged Nvidia and AMD.)
- Who’s going to take a seat of their $80,000 sports activities automobile and play a 70+ hour sport? (fingers crossed for cloud saves)
- Why not Cyberpunk? (Okay, this one’s a joke.)
