Nvidia Wants to Be the Brains of Your Self-Driving Car

Chip designer Nvidia on Tuesday revealed a new processor called Drive Thor it expects will power the autonomous vehicle revolution.

Thor processors should arrive in 2024 for cars hitting the roads in 2025, starting with an EV from Chinese carmaker Zeekr, said Danny Shapiro, vice president of Nvidia’s automotive work. They’re based on Nvidia’s new Hopper graphics processing unit to better handle the artificial intelligence software that’s key to self-driving cars.
