LIVE FROM CES 2016: Chipset vendor Nvidia kicked off this year’s event by announcing Drive PX2, which is described as “the world’s first in-car super computer”. Last year the vendor announced its predecessor, the Drive PX. “Several thousand man years have gone into advances in self-driving cars at Nvidia over the last year,” said CEO Jens-Hsun-Huang (pictured).
