Tesla will reportedly use Intel chips to power its massive infotainment console

Tesla may be parting ways with Nvidia for good.
The electric car maker will no longer use chips from Nvidia to power its massive infotainment console, Bloomberg’s Ian King first reported. Instead, Tesla will use chips supplied by Intel, the world’s largest chipmaker.
The Model 3 and new versions of the Model X and Model S will rely on the Intel chips, according to the report.
Nvidia declined to comment on the report. A Tesla representative said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.
Nvidia also supplies the chips to power Tesla’s Autopilot system, but may not do so for much longer. CNBC reported Wednesday that Tesla is developing its own chip to power its future self-driving cars.
