Tesla has begun rolling out Model Y and Model 3 electric vehicles with AMD Ryzen processors and new GPUs. At the same time, it is reported that the owners of previously released electric vehicles will have the opportunity to perform a hardware upgrade of their cars in the second half of 2022.
By releasing new versions of the Tesla Model S and Model X last year, the company confirmed that they are using a state-of-the-art infotainment center with Playstation 5 performance. Later, AMD announced that Tesla was using next-generation Ryzen processors along with a discrete graphics chip (GPU ).
Last November, it was revealed that China’s Model Y Performance is shipping with AMD Ryzen processors and AMD GPUs. The new hardware was installed on cars without additional announcements from Tesla. Then, US customers also stated that the Model 3 received upgraded equipment. The parts catalog for Europe states that the new components will also be fitted to vehicles for this region.
The announcement has been well received by customers looking forward to the delivery of new machines. However, existing owners of machines with old computers will definitely get the opportunity to replace their existing equipment with a new version. Reported by Drive Tesla Canada.
Tesla has previously updated infotainment equipment for $ 1,500 to $ 2,000, depending on the version of the autopilot installed in the car. There may be a higher price for those wishing to install an AMD Ryzen processor and AMD GPU.
What video card is needed for such a screen? BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz
BOE is working on the industry’s first 600Hz LCD panel. The network got frames from the official video, which demonstrates a laptop with a similar screen.
Details are at a minimum. It is known that the screen diagonal is 16 inches with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The laptop itself is based on one of the GeFoce RTX video cards.
Such a screen, by itself, will be aimed at gaming laptops. But it is still completely unclear when it will appear in production models. For example, BOE showed a 27-inch 500-Hz display back in January, but so far such monitors have not appeared on the market.
On the other hand, you need to understand that the increased frame rate of the screen is good when the number of frames per second in a particular game corresponds to this frequency. And to achieve 600 fps is possible only in fairly old or very simple games from a graphical point of view when using very productive video cards.

No more $100 GeForce RTX 3060. Used video cards skyrocketed in price at times
It looks like the market for used GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards is slowly moving away from ridiculously low prices.
According to the WCCF Tech resource, a month after the transition of Ethereum to Proof-of-stake, the market was flooded with adapters at bargain prices. For example, the RTX 3060 could be bought for as little as $100. Of course, this is a card after mining, but this is often not a sentence. However, these prices are no longer available.
On eBay, the RTX 3060 is now asking $300 on average, and the RTX 3080 Ti is $800 instead of $370 a couple of months ago. Not only is this an increase of two or three times literally in a month or two, but we are also talking about prices close to the prices of new 3D cards!
The source, of course, does not know the exact reasons for this situation, but suggests that the matter may be the depleted stocks of miners who sold cards for next to nothing, although this is unlikely. Another version is that the ultra-cheap cards were simply bought by speculators. In any case, the situation is rather unusual so far.
