CES 2011 News: Tesla And BMW To Feature NVIDIA Infotainment Console
NVIDIA is one of the most famous and respected video cards manufactures. Rumor has it that the American company is set to sign a partnership with BMW and Tesla Motors for supplying video cars on their next models.
The video cards will be incorporated in the infotainment system, so it will feature more realistic colors and graphics. The new NVIDIA video cars will allow the driver use even more realistic GPS maps and even a gaming platform for the passengers. It seems that BMW and Tesla want to use 17 inch touchscreen monitors for their vehicles.
NVIDIA recently presented their new infotainment system at CES 2011, a system that was incorporated in a BMW 5-Series. The new touchscreen monitors will be able to display a resolution of 1280×600 pixels.
The new infotainment technology developed by NVIDIA is very efficient in terms of energy consumption, so the electric cars manufacturers will be able to use the monitors on their electric vehicles. Tesla Motors will use NVIDIA technology for the electric gauges and for the dashboard controls.
When asked about their partnership with BMW, Dan Vivoli, Senior Vice President at NVIDIA said: “BMW has built their reputation on creating the ultimate driving experience. They are taking that to an entirely new level with NVIDIA GPUs.”
