New BYD cars to feature NVIDIA Drive Orin chips across the range
22 March - At NVIDIA's GTC 2023, NVIDIA announced a partnership with BYD.
NVIDIA said that starting next year, BYD will deploy the NVIDIA Drive Orin high-performance computing platform across its entire vehicle lineup, including several models in the next-generation Dynasty and Ocean series.
NVIDIA and BYD believe that the vehicles of the future will have the ability to be programmable, evolving from being based on many embedded controllers to a centralised high performance computer that provides new features and services through software updates throughout the vehicle's lifecycle.
NVIDIA DRIVE Orin is the world's most powerful automotive chip and the "brain" of next-generation automotive artificial intelligence.
The DRIVE Orin chip contains 21 billion transistors and is powered by the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture with 12 Cortex-A78 ARM 64 CPUs, supporting deep learning and computer vision accelerators and up to 254 TOPS of processing power, or 254 trillion calculations per second.
With both high-speed peripheral interfaces and high memory bandwidth (205GB/sec), it can seamlessly process data from multiple sensor configurations for safe and reliable intelligent driving.
With this high performance, low power consumption and powerful computing capability, BYD will be able to bring safer and more advanced intelligent driving in the future.
It is worth mentioning that from the first half of this year, BYD will equip some of its new vehicles with the NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion platform, which enables intelligent driving and intelligent parking of vehicles.
