  • NVIDIA Powers The Next Generation Audi

    NVIDIA Powers The Next Generation Audi

    One of the biggest rumors leading up to CES was a partnership between Google and Audi; that came true, but the power behind it all is NVIDIA. NVIDIA has announced three new in-vehicle systems powered by their Tegra Visual Computing Module that will soon begin shipping in Audi models, offering a connected infotainment experience, an automotive-grade tablet that is fully integrated into the car, and a high-resolution digital cockpit with vivid 3D graphical displays. We’re excited to see partnerships like this that bring raw computing power to our automobiles–but with great power comes great responsibility; so here’s to hoping that consumers take the same care in using this new car tech as manufacturers take in designing them. Check the full release after the jump to learn more.
