At the beginning of 2022, in a news we shared with you, we talked about the future of Steam, the world’s most popular online gaming platform, for Tesla cars. In the statements made by Elon Musk, it was mentioned that the integration work continues and the infotainment screens in Tesla have the potential to open all games on Steam.
Elon Musk made new statements on the subject, which attracts the curiosity of game-loving adults. Mentioning that the work for Steam integration continues at full speed, Musk pointed to August 2022. According to Musk, Tesla cars will most likely start running Steam with prestige next month.
Why is Tesla doing this kind of work?
In fact, the infotainment screens used in Tesla cars already allow gaming. In this context, games such as Cuphead and Sonic the Hedgehog 1 come preloaded to this screen. Tesla owners can also play games to pass the time while their vehicles are charging. But that’s not the case. Elon Musk, in his statements a while ago, announced that games such as Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher will also come to Tesla cars. In summary; Tesla cars will be able to run all games on Steam.
Elon Musk and the Tesla group care about in-vehicle entertainment systems. However, installing games on infotainment screens and enabling these games to be played is not easy at all. This is where Steam will step in. Instead of installing individual games on their infotainment screens, the company will integrate Steam. In this way, an intermediary software will make it easier for Tesla to reach its goal. August 2022 looks set to be a time when we talk about Tesla more than ever before.
Tesla will open the game, but how much is the hardware power?
In terms of technical features of Tesla cars, it is strong enough to give the same performance with PlayStation 5. For example, Tesla Arcade has AMD RDNA2 Navi 23 GPU. The power of this GPU; It was recorded as 10 TFLOPS. The GPU power of PlayStation 5 is 10.28 TFLOPS. It is not possible to say anything clear at the moment, but Tesla seems to have the potential to stand up to the world’s smoothest game consoles.
