FaradayFuture has announced that its first production car, the FF91, will be powered by Nvidia's NVIDIA Adriveorin platform chip.
FF, which has a close partnership with Nvidia, will leverage the NvidiaDrive platform for continuous improvement and seamless leaps in next-generation performance, and plans to introduce advanced highway autonomous driving capabilities and advanced parking and calling capabilities when the FF91 hits the market.
"FF's goal is to provide the latest, state-of-the-art computing power on FF91," the official said. We chose the Nvidia Adriveorin as our autonomous driving platform, and its seamless upgrade path is something we take very seriously."
The NVIDIA ADRIVEORIN chip has 21 billion transistors, 12 Cortex-A78ARM64CPUs, deep learning and computer vision accelerators, and is capable of delivering 254 trillion operations per second.
With this high performance, low power computing power, FF will also be equipped with more advanced autonomous driving and parking capabilities on future FF81 and FF71 models.
The FF81 and FF71, which are also equipped with the Nvidiadriveorin autonomous driving platform, are expected to be available in 2023 and 2024 respectively.
In particular, FF officials also revealed that they are currently preparing for the closing of a merger with special purpose acquisition firm PSAC, which is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021. After the transaction, FF will trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol "FFIE."
At that time, many of Jia's creditors will also be repaid through FF shares.
