Nvidia puts more of its deep learning under the bonnet of cars

Powered by Pascal Nvidia is applying all that it knows about deep learning to enable autonomous vehicles. The GPU vendor has launched NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 which is an autonomous vehicle development platform powered by the 16nm FinFET-based Pascal GPU. The GPU maker issued a version of DRIVE PX last year to its automotive partners including Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford and dozens more. This newer  version is equipped with two Tegra SOCs with ARM cores plus two discrete Pascal GPUs. Nvidia said that the new platform is capable of 24 trillion deep learning operations per second ten times more than the last generation. It can also offer an aggregate of 8 teraflops of single-precision performance which is a four-fold increase over the PX 1 and many times faster than using…
