Although Tesla has not officially confirmed it yet, some Model Y units have been seen equipped with the new hardware cameras 4
It was early last March that we learned that the latest Model X units had started to integrate Tesla’s 4 hardware, which includes a new mainframe computer and some improvements to the cameras surrounding the vehicle. Thanks to this new hardware, it is expected that the American manufacturer can take another step forward in search of the much-desired total autonomous driving.
It was a matter of time before this same hardware ended up reaching Tesla models intended for the general public, and that moment seems to have already arrived. Some recent reports and images published on social networks warn that some Model Y units have just been seen from the Fremont Gigafactory in California. equipped with new side cameraslarger, such as those included with the hardware 4.
It is important to note, however, that today it is possible that those customers who are waiting for the delivery of their new Model Y still receive a unit with hardware 3, instead of 4. Some users have been able to verify how in the batches of this Electric SUVs that are arriving at the centers where Tesla makes deliveries alternate units with both versions of hardware. What we say is, for the moment, applicable only to the North American market. In Europe, where Model Y units on the market come from both the Berlin Gigafactory and the Shanghai Gigafactory, there is no record yet of vehicles with integrated hardware 4.
The increased CPU power of the hardware 4 is required to handle the higher resolution images offered by the new cameras
Tesla’s hardware 4 mainframe uses an architecture based on Samsung’s Exynos technology, with a twenty-core CPU, instead of the hardware 3’s twelve cores. Each of these computer’s CPU cores hardware central 4 runs at a maximum frequency of 2.35 Ghz, with a rest frequency of 1.37 GHz. Tesla’s hardware 4 also integrates a greater number of cameras and higher resolution; as well as a new radar Phoenix that offers a greater range than the one that Tesla integrated some time ago, before removing it from its vehicles.
