At the GTC Europe 2017 on Tuesday, Nvidia unveiled a mega size platform for the autonomous vehicles. Dubbed as Pegasus, the super platform designed by Nvidia is the size of a car license plate and is equipped with the datacenter class processing power.

Nvidia claims that Pegasus can run the Class 5 cars entirely, delivering over 320 trillion operations per second, or 10 times more than the power of its predecessor. A level 5 vehicle can drive itself, and no driver is required, meanwhile, a level 3 car is required to have a steering wheel and a driver to take control in case of an emergency. A Level 4 car has all driver-less features, but for dedicated lanes. None of the vehicles commercially available today are higher than a level 2.

Most automakers claim that they may skip level 3 and level 4, and go directly to level 5, notes The Verge. By late 2018, the company plans to ship the Nvidia Pegasus to hundreds of automakers and tech companies that are currently working on the self-driving cars. The world’s largest logistics company, DHL Group, has already agreed to deploy Nvidia Pegasus chips in their autonomous fleet of trucks, the chip maker said.
