Tesla's Model S refresh includes a built-in 10 teraflop PC gaming rig
Telsa has launched a refreshed Model S and while looking quite similar on the surface, it is fitted with what is undoubtedly the ultimate in-car entertainment system. Normally, such a description might extend to its monumental 22-speaker 960 W stereo system alone. However, Tesla has truly gone the extra mile by equipping the new Model S with a full-blown PS5-equalling 10 teraflop gaming rig to keep the passengers as entertained as the driver.
As the promotional shots show, passengers travelling inside the new Model S will be able to play PC titles such as The Witcher 3. As a last-gen gaming title, it gives one a sense of the gaming chops of the onboard rig, although Telsa hasn’t revealed the specifics of what is powering the system. It does, however, mention that gamers can play from any seat in the car using wireless controllers -- again, the types of controllers aren’t specified but compatibility with Xbox controllers would appear likely.
Games can be played on the massive front screen of the car as well as the smaller, but still serviceable, rear screen built into the rear of the center console. Unfortunately, Tesla doesn’t provide details on whether the pictured games are pre-installed, or whether buyers will need to pay for them individually, or whether they will need to subscribe to a gaming service. No details, either, on the size of the built in drive or whether games can be installed by optical disc. Regardless, Tesla has raised the bar once again for what a car could and should be.
