If you can’t discover a PS5 or Xbox Series X, how about an $80,000 electrical cars with equivalent efficiency? Tesla just announced its revitalized Model S today, and a new “Plaid” powertrain isn’t its only performance improvement– the business declares the automobile can now compete with next-gen video gaming consoles, thanks to a 10- teraflop video gaming computer that will apparently come with every brand-new model.

Assuming that refers to GPU performance and Tesla isn’t wildly exaggerating, that may indeed be competitive with a PS5 or Xbox Series X, which use 10.28 teraflops and 12 teraflops of raw GPU power respectively. There’s more to performance than teraflops.

Now, you might ask: who’s going to put a video game in your cars and truck that might really make the most of a video gaming PC? For that, I must ask you to look carefully at the images above and below. Behold: CD Projekt’s well-known sword-slinging experience The Witcher 3, simply as Musk foretold:

Wish to play The Witcher game on your Tesla? (you can already enjoy the show on Tesla Netflix theater)

Here are a variety of things we still do not know:

  • Is The Witcher 3 actually pertaining to Tesla, and when? (We’ve asked CD Projekt.)
  • Can you play it on the 17- inch, 2200 x 1300- pixel main display screen, or just on the 8-inch second row display screen? Or both?
  • Will you need a brand-new controller? (Tesla says it has “wireless controller compatibility” but that’s all we know.)
  • Who’s making the GPU? (We’ve pinged Nvidia and AMD.)
  • Who is going to sit in their $80,000 cars and play a 70+ hour video game? (fingers crossed for cloud conserves)
  • Why not Cyberpunk? ( Okay, this one’s a joke.)

You can see the claims on your own at Tesla’s Model S site, though they’re a little buried: you have to go to the store, scroll down to “Interior” and click “Function Particulars.”

Tesla’s been bringing video games to its vehicles for a while now: we tried out Tesla Game on a Design 3 back in 2019, and both the very first level of Cuphead and an automobile karaoke mode came to the business’s in-car software application later that year. Fallout Shelter was added to the automobiles in 2015.
