Tesla unveiled the new Model S earlier today and whilst it has a brand new interior and the ability to travel further on a single charge, its gaming capabilities are pretty great too
Tesla says that the new Model S has 10 teraflops of processing power which is as much as a PS5 and double that of an Xbox Series S, but just short of the Xbox Series X’s 12 teraflops of processing power.
.@Tesla says the new series S Arcade will have 10 teraflops of gaming performance.
Xbox Series X: 12 teraflops PS5: 10 teraflops Tesla Model S: 10 teraflops Xbox Series S: 4 teraflops
In the new imagery released showing off the new Model S, games such as The Witcher 3, Cuphead and Stardew Valley can be shown on screen. The car appears to have a rear screen so that those in the back seat can play the game whilst being driven. I’d assume that you can’t play games on the front screen unless the car is in parked, otherwise this would be pretty distracting.
The new Model S will launch in the USA later this year for $79,990 USD ($100,000 AUD), which is still probably cheaper than what you’d pay the average scalper for a PS5.
It’s unlikely that we’ll see this in Australia until next year, and unclear what pricing it’d actually makes its way over here for.
