AP HW3 upgrades for Model 3 are starting to arrive at Tesla service centers: rumor

AP HW3 upgrades for Model 3 are starting to arrive at Tesla service centers: rumor

Today it became known that AP HW3 upgrades for Model 3 are starting to arrive at Tesla service centers.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk blasted news out on Twitter back in March that anyone who purchased FSD would get the upgrade to the new FSD computer free of charge. The new hardware brings 21 times the computing power to Tesla’s vehicles compared to the previous generation of Nvidia hardware being used.

The new equipment is a direct replacement for the fully standalone Nvidia computer that Tesla used in its vehicles with the HW2 and HW2.5. Tesla created its own fully automated computer (FSD) after being dissatisfied with the general computer capabilities available on the market even from best-in-class vendors such as Nvidia.

Earlier, in September, the HW3 update was only offered to owners of Models S and X.

Hardware installation is the first step. Tesla needs to rebuild its software stack for a completely new computer, and with redundancy on this new computing platform. We already saw the same step from Tesla when it switched from Mobileye chipsets to Nvidia's computer equipment.

Tesla will take some time to completely transfer the solution to new equipment and put it into operation.

The new HW3 cannot yet be requested by customers for installation, since it is installed only by suitable vehicles that need other services in service centers that have new equipment and are trained in its installation. 

Soon, all Tesla owners who available install the new HW will receive it. Service centers receive a VIN# list and contact their owners.

Black Tesla, who already has an HW3, made a video review of it. He discusses various aspects of autopilot, including traffic cone detection, NOA, automatic lane change, lane maintenance on city streets, and automatic control on extremely winding roads.

I'm a big fan of Tesla, as I worry about the future for my child and for future generations. Tesla's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy and I'm passionately striving for this goal. I’m tired of the daily deception from Tesla’s haters against the company, so I strive to spread true information and the latest news about Tesla.

Tesla launched a process that as a result has changed the global perception of transportation. The company has created a product that millions of people around the world want to receive. Environmentally friendly transport is now fashionable because it is economically viable and high-tech. I hope Porsche follows Tesla’s example and starts taking care of his clients.
