NVIDIA unveils details on mobile processor designed for autonomous vehicles

Earlier this year, NVIDIA introduced its NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 platform (pictured), which is a platform that combines deep learning, sensor fusion, and surround vision for autonomous vehicles. Now, NVIDIA has provided more details on the Parker Systems on a Chip (SoC) that is powering it. [Native Advertisement] Parker is built around NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU 256-core architecture and two Denver 2.0 64-bit cores and four ARM Cortex A57 64-bit cores. The SoC delivers up to 1.5 teraflops(1) of performance for deep learning-based self-driving AI cockpit systems. The Denver 2.0 CPU is a seven-way superscalar processor that supports the ARM v8 instruction set and implements an improved dynamic code optimization algorithm and additional low-power retention states for better energy efficiency, according to NVIDIA. The device’s new 256-core Pascal GPU enables the running…
