NVIDIA Drive tops 1 trillion operations per second

NVIDIA announced at GTC its NVIDIA Drive Atlan next-generation AI-enabled processor for autonomous vehicles that can top more than 1,000 trillion operations per second (TOPS).

The new system-on-a-chip combines AI and software with computing, networking and security for unprecedented levels of performance and security. Built on NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture, it is packed with new Arm CPU cores and deep learning and computer vision accelerators.

Automakers can leverage its compute capabilities to build software-defined vehicles that are richly programmable and perpetually upgradeable through secure, over-the-air updates.

“The transportation industry needs a computing platform that it can rely on for decades. The software investment is too immense to repeat for each car. NVIDIA Drive is the most advanced AI and AV computing platform, with rich global software and developer ecosystems, and architecturally compatible for generations,” said Jensen Huang, Founder and CEO of NVIDIA.

NVIDIA Drive Atlan will be deployed in vehicles from 2025.
