ECARX and smart have unveiled their co-developed high-performance immersive digital cockpit computing platform powered by AMD technology at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, USA.
The next-generation digital cockpit, set to feature in the smart brand’s all-electric production vehicles to be launched from 2024, is the first in-vehicle computing platform designed and developed by ECARX using AMD technology, following their global strategic collaboration announcement in August 2022.
Utilizing AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V2000 Processors and AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series GPUs, the digital cockpit will offer advanced computing power and stunning game console-grade visual graphic rendering capabilities. The platform combines AMD hardware with ECARX’s innovative product design and software capabilities, and was engineered from the ground up for superior performance and breakthrough display capabilities.
Through collaboration and co-creation, ECARX aims to transform vehicles into seamlessly integrated information, communications, and transportation devices. Ziyu Shen, Chairman and CEO of ECARX said, “Through our collaboration with smart, ECARX has developed a flagship immersive digital cockpit computing platform, powered by AMD, that will define next generation in-vehicle entertainment systems. This is a true breakthrough in intelligent cockpit experiences and further demonstrates the strength of ECARX as a partner to global brands as they rapidly shift toward smart, all-electric mobility”.
Rajneesh Gaur, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Embedded Solutions Group, AMD added, “As more functionality gets added to the digital cockpit, the next generation of electric vehicles will require high-performance compute solutions. We are excited to collaborate with ECARX to bring differentiated experiences for smart EVs and advance the in-vehicle experience for consumers.”
As a premium all-electric automobile and technology brand, smart aims to explore the best solutions for future urban mobility. “The car is no longer just a vehicle to transport passengers from A to B, instead it is an intelligent companion that can transform mobility into meaningful experiences; this is why the in-car experience is more important than ever before. We are glad to collaborate with ECARX and AMD, and all our leading partners, to design a smarter future together”, said Xiangbei Tong, Global CEO of smart Automobile.
