Tesla, AMD partner to develop chip for autonomous cars

The company needs the best in hardware and software to make this dream a reality. It also hired Jim Keller, who previously worked with AMD and Apple, to lead its chip division. The move would reduce Nvidia's role in Tesla's self-driving-car ambitions and bring more of the project in-house.

GlobalFoundries, which fabricates chips for Advanced Micro Devices Inc, said on Thursday it had not received any commitment from Tesla to work with any autonomous driving technology or product, contradicting an earlier media report.

Telsa is reportedly developing its own AI chip for automated cars with AMD.

Tesla is taking steps to decrease its reliance on Nvidia, which has supplied the electric automaker with the graphic processing units powering Tesla's Autopilot and future self-driving system. Company chief Elon Musk once said that Tesla aims to have fully autonomous cars by 2019 - we'll just have to wait and see if it can stick to that timeline.

For years, Tesla had partnered with MobileEye for the image-recognition hardware in its Autopilot technology, but the Israeli company ended the relationship last July following a fatal crash involving the semi-autonomous system.

"More than 50 people are working on the initiative under Keller", the source told Novet. The net/net here for AMD is that Tesla has confirmed AMD's CPU and GPU roadmaps in a field that nobody was considering as viable; it says that AMD's CPU/GPUs in PC and server markets are the real deal in terms of capturing and perhaps exceeding historical peak share in x86 of 25% (now low single digits).

Tesla has not officially commented on this report.
