A real supercomputer for cars. Nvidia cancels Atlan SoC in favor of even more powerful Thor

Published

In early 2021, Nvidia nominally announced the Atlan SoC for the automotive supercomputers of the future. Then the details were almost not disclosed, promising a performance of 1000 TOPS. Nvidia announced today that it is phasing out the Atlan project, but instead introduced an even more powerful solution called Thor.

The Thor platform, like Atlan, is targeting a 2025 release. Details, like a year ago, are still at a minimum. Thor will be based on Poseidon AE processor cores, nothing is known about the GPU at all. It can be either the generation of Ada Lovelace, or the next one after it.

But performance (FP8) Nvidia promises already in 2000 TOPS. This indicator cannot be directly compared with others, but 1000 TOPS (INT8) was declared for Atlan, and in the case of Orin SoC, which is used in Nvidia Drive car supercomputers now, we are talking about 256 TOPS (INT8). It is also known that the SoC will consist of 77 billion transistors, that is, it will correspond in this parameter to the latest GPU AD102, which underlies the GeForce RTX 4090.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore: electric, powerful, very low and outwardly does not betray its electric essence. The car is valued at $170,000

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric powerful very low and outwardly does

Maserati has shared details about its first electric coupe called the GranTurismo Folgore.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore: electric, powerful, very low and outwardly does not betray its electric essence.  The car is valued at $170,000

Folgore, according to the statement of the company itself, will be the lowest electric car in the world – 135 mm.

The machine is equipped with three electric motors with a total capacity of 760 hp. This allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km/h. At the same time, some sources talk about 1200 hp, which is also true. The fact is that the power of each electric motor is 300 kW or about 1207 hp, but the installation never works at such a power, giving a maximum of about 760 hp.

The battery capacity is 92.5 kWh, and it can be charged at stations with a capacity of 270 kW. The power reserve is declared equal to 450 km according to the WLTP cycle, but for such powerful electric vehicles this is a very conditional indicator. From the rest, we can note a mass of almost 2270 kg, a trunk of 270 liters, three screens (a 12.2-inch digital instrument panel, a 12.3-inch infotainment system screen and another 8.8-inch screen, but it is not yet clear Where it is located).

For those who still would like to hear the characteristic sound of the engine, Maserati offers a corresponding function, when recordings of its own V8 engines are played from the speakers in accordance with the nature of the movement. In addition, the company focuses on the fact that the design of the car practically does not give out an electric car in it.

It remains to add that for the car they will ask from 170,000 to 215,000 dollars. Sales will begin in the summer of 2023.

Tesla Model 3 loses control crashes and catches fire This

At the end of last week, Mydrivers published a video filmed on one of the Chinese tracks. First, we are shown a Tesla Model 3 electric car engulfed in fire.

At the end of the video, we see how the Tesla Model 3 loses control at high speed in the rain and crashes into a fence. From a strong blow, the driver was thrown onto the road, after which the car was engulfed in fire. Tesla has not made an official statement about this.

Mydrivers notes that there have been a series of other accidents prior to this involving the company’s electric vehicles. In July of this year, artist Lin Zhiying was driving a Tesla Model S that caught fire after a collision.

This car should sell better than the BMW 3 Nio

Nio management has confirmed that deliveries of the new ET5 model have already begun. It competes with the Tesla Model 3 and BMW 3. Previously, Qin Lihong, co-founder and president of Nio, said that within a year, the ET5 will outsell the fuel version of the BMW 3 Series, and the ET5 will eventually replace similar traditional “fuel cars.”

This car was introduced in December last year, it has a sporty design. The car is priced at $51,000 with a 75 kWh battery and $60,000 with a 100 kWh battery.

The Nio T5 is equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous front motor and asynchronous rear motor with a maximum total power output of 360 kW, peak torque of 700 Nm and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. The basic version has a range of more than 700 km, while the older version offers a range of more than 1,000 km. Vehicle dimensions – 4790 x 1960 x 1499 mm, wheelbase is 2888 mm. The speaker system supports 7.1.4 sound format, has 23 speakers and supports Dolby Atmos technology.

Nio shipped 10,878 new vehicles in September 2022, according to Nio’s official figures. In the third quarter, Nio delivered 31,607 new vehicles, up 29.3% from last year. This quarter was a record quarter in the history of the company.
