At the ‘Tesla Autonomy Day’, Tesla unveiled all the details about its new Full Self-Driving computer, which CEO Elon Musk claims is ‘objectively the best chip in the world’. The automaker has been talking about this new computer for years now.

Earlier this month, Tesla announced that the new Full Self-Driving (FSD) computer, previously known as Autopilot Hardware 3.0, is now in production. Now the company clarified that it was in all new Model S and Model X since March (start around March 20th) and in all new Model 3 vehicles earlier this month (starting around April 12th).

Musk said that they found that there’s no chip built from the ground up for neural net and they decided to design one and build software designed specifically to work with the hardware.

Tesla also said that hardware cost about 20% less per car than the Autopilot hardware 2.5.
