The 2022 Tesla Model Y will feature a major upgrade. The company is gearing up to receive an improvement in the interface, with the inclusion of an AMD Ryzen chipset for a better and faster touchscreen experience.
The new chip would basically enable the car to offer a better user experience while other upgrades include a lithium-ion auxiliary battery and laminated glass.
As of right now, the electric vehicle-making giant is gearing up for the launch of the latest iteration of the Model Y, which should be available globally in the coming months.
In addition to this, customers in China have already begun receiving new upgraded Performance models, so we can expect the same to be shipped to other regions as well.
At the moment, the wait time for a Performance variant in China has reached a full year. Now, one of the Chinese owners has shared an image on Twitter, which revealed that their new Performance variant is powered by an AMD Ryzen chip over the Intel Atom, which had previously powered the MCU(media control unit) on older EV models.
Looking at the tweet, the person stated that the company’s Gigafactory in China is installing the latest AMD Ryzen series chips on the latest Model Y Performance.
Similarly, another customer also took to Twitter to share their latest Model Y also features an AMD Ryzen chip, front and rear laminated glass, a 16V lithium-ion battery, and a 78.4 kWh LG NCMA battery as well.
