For when you need Keanu on the go, I guess?
On Wednesday, electric car manufacturer Tesla announced their fourth-quarter earnings. Who cares about that, though, because during the presentation, the company unveiled something a lot of folks had been buzzing about: a refreshed version of the Tesla Model S sedan. There’s lots of new specifications, including a steering wheel that Twitter users have jokingly compared to the one on KITT in Knight Rider. The interesting thing, though, is one of the preview images showing the car’s digital dashboard display, which featured a preview image of CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3.
Since CD Projekt Red has been in the news in the last few months due to the shaky release of Cyberpunk 2077 (to put it politely), the appearance of one of their games in this preview got some folks curious, prompting them to take their questions to Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk. While he was talking about the car on his own Twitter, Musk dedicated a tweet to typing out a single sentence: “It can play Cyberpunk.”

In case you forgot, though I don’t know how you would’ve, Cyberpunk 2077 ran like hot garbage on most consoles, so the idea of it running on the OS of a car of all things is pretty out there. However, according to the specifications of the car’s processor given during the reveal, the dashboard screen has about ten terraflops of processing power. That’s computerized muscle on par with a PlayStation 5, and greater than an Xbox Series S. According to Musk, the dashboard screen also has “more storage now” and is “easily upgradable.”
Neither Tesla nor CD Projekt Red have commented on Musk’s claim as of writing. Considering everything that went down with the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077, it’d be kind of poetic if a car ended up running the game better than those version.
