While for some the last thing they’d need in their car dash is a gaming console, Tesla and Elon Musk think it’s the premium touch that will separate them from the competition.
Musk just tweeted that Steam on Tesla will happen sooner than you think.
The company aims to offer a Steam demo on Tesla cars as soon as next month.
The demo would go far to showcase the powerful internals from Tesla cars. Featuring an AMD Ryzen CPU and RDNA2 GPU, the head unit in Tesla S and X models could theoretically even run Cyberpunk 2077.
Right now, the only games on Tesla available are simple titles like Sonic and Cuphead, as part of the Tesla Arcade program.
What Elon Musk hasn’t addressed yet are safety concerns like the potential for driver distraction or the possibility of a game crash, which could in turn affect the entire operating system in the car.
Once the demo is here, Tesla will probably explain what safeguards were put in place.
