The surprise that Tesla gave last night with the presentation of the Model S Plaid was not the speed or the autonomy, what was surprising was the ability to play Cyberpunk 2077 from the front seat of the car.
Tesla is not a conventional car company and they show that every time they launch a new vehicle on the market. This time it was time to meet the new Model S Plaid, a car that maintains the aesthetic line implemented by the Californian company. The features it hides make it a high-end car with an acceleration capacity from 0 to 100 in just 2.1 seconds.
But speed or modern design with futuristic touches is not the only thing that catches the eye. Inside this car, the premium technology above all else and to such an extent that it has an AMD Ryzen CPU and an AMD RDNA 2 GPU. The data may not tell you much, but these characteristics are similar to those of the last generation consoles: XBOX Series X and PS5.
And it is that Tesla wanted to show off the power of these components and did so by showing how you can play triple A titles like Cyberpunk 2077 comfortably in the front seat of the Model S Plaid. The truth is that the drive to have high-level specifications indicates the path that Tesla is following when it comes to its cars.
What’s more, at the official presentation of the Model S Plaid a remote developed by Tesla was shown. Not much was said about this remote, but it was the one they used to demonstrate that you could play video games on the car screen.
Of course, if you hope to get a Tesla Model S Plaid you will have to prepare the wallet. The launch price will be 129,999 euros and will have a range of 628 kilometers, the maximum speed that it would reach would be around 322 km / h. Although to be able to see these cars circulate, we will have to wait until 2022.
