Tesla often makes the headlines and the launch of the refreshed Model S has certainly got the automotive world talking. This time, however, it has also got the world of PC gaming talking too with the inclusion of a PS5-equalling 10 teraflop gaming PC built into the car.

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.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to site and its readership.
