Elon Musk says that the new AI chips for Tesla cars, which the company develops, will be installed in electric cars in six months. According to the businessman, the increase in the efficiency of the autopilot system in comparison with the current one will vary in the range from 500% to 2000%. According to The Verge, the existing owners of Tesla will receive an upgrade to the so-called hardware 3 for free.
The announcement took place shortly after the release of the software update for the existing vehicle control system. Elon Musk estimated the increase in system efficiency at 400%.
It is noted that Elon Musk regularly makes loud statements, but does not always follow the announced plan: “full autonomy,” for example, he promised by 2017.
