CES 2016: Nvidia announces ‘supercomputer in a lunchbox’ with 12-core CPU for self-driving cars

Nvidia has just announced a revamped version of its computing platform for self-driving cars, the Drive PX 2, which is claimed to deliver an enormous processing power equivalent to 150 MacBook Pros. Powered by 12 CPU cores with a combined throughput of eight teraflops and 24 Trillion deep learning operations per second, the Drive PX 2 is touted by Nvidia as the “supercomputer in a lunchbox”. Nvidia Despite its small 16nm architecture, the Drive PX 2 is claimed to consume about 250 watts of power and given its huge-processing power, a liquid-cooling system is a necessity on all self-driving cars using this technology.
