AMD’s Navi 23 GPU for Tesla Automobiles is Roughly as Powerful as the PS5

AMD’s RDNA 2 based Navi 23 GPU for Tesla’s vehicles is pretty much as powerful as the chip powering the next-gen PlayStation 5 consoles, at least on paper. Like the PS5, the Navi 23 GPU features 16GB of GDDR6 memory running at 14Gbps, albeit paired with a slimmer 128-bit, nonetheless resulting in a 224GB/s memory bandwidth, same as the Xbox Series X.

The GPU comes with two DisplayPorts, one HDMI 1.4 ports, and a PCIe 3.0 x8 interface for expansion devices:


Where the PS5 features a total of 36 Compute Units, the Navi 23 GPU packs 32 with a higher peak frequency of 2.44GHz (vs 2.24GHz dynamic boost on the PS5) which helps compensate for the slightly lower vector count and slimmer bus.

The Navi 23 GPU can yield a total performance of 10 TFLOPs, the same as the PlayStation 5 and slightly lower than the Xbox Series X. It’s important to note that the compute rating isn’t everything, but considering the application it’s still pretty impressive.
