Tegra Digital Dashboards Lighting Up Geneva Motor Show

No mobile device has a grander history than the automobile. When you first walk into this week’s Geneva International Motor Show, you enter a gleaming showcase dedicated to the history of the storied 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. In this vast hall, the history of the race is chronicled, from the vintage race cars from the 1920s up to last year’s winner, the Audi e-Tron. For all the change in that near century, one thing remains the same: great cars have always been on the forefront of new technology. And the cars at this year’s event show how much our visual computing technology has become a part of the industry.

Among the highlights: the all-new 3rd generation Audi TT family. This sleek two-door, four-passenger sports car features LED Matrix and a fully virtual cockpit powered by NVIDIA Tegra. Another showstopper: the Lamborghini Huracأ،n. The newly unveiled luxury super sports car does 0 to 60mph in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of more than 200mph; and it features a high-performance Tegra 3-powered instrument cluster using a 12.3-inch screen.
