According to a report issued by CNBC on Wednesday, Tesla is now testing samples of the first fabricated chips, built on top of intellectual property owned by AMD. For Tesla, this is the firs ttime they've opted for a objective built AI processor, which will be using both AMD and Tesla IP.
Tesla is looking to develop their own chips that are custom made to their AI needs, and provide energy efficiency while tackling specifically the problems of self-driving.
The chip project, according to CNBC, is being overseen by Autopilot head Jim Keller, an eight-year Apple veteran who had designed several chips for various iPhones.
Tesla is one of the leading automakers working towards a complete self-driving solution where it will one day be possible to hop in your auto, plug in a destination, and let the vehicle do all of the work.

Lipacis also comments on Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), which was bumped to the side in favor of AMD, saying that near-term headline risks aren't favorable but he doesn't see a long-term risk.

Based on 25 analysts polled by TipRanks in the last 3 months, 15 rate a Buy on Nvidia stock, 7 maintain a Hold, while 3 issue a Sell on the stock. "Overall, we think Nvidia remains as the primary workhorse/engine while AMD chips are used for specific applications to avoid giving Nvidia 100% of the AI content in self-driving vehicles", surmises the analyst.
Mosesmann maintained a buy rating on AMD and price target of 22.
