I can't recall when the last time I saw an Atom processor.

I guess the rationale is that they are low power? Perhaps it explains the relatively poor performance of the infotainment system (in conjunction with Windows IoT)

Yes, that makes sense and it's for tablets.

@ardevd mentioned that the GPU is not strong enough to handle the 3 screens.
I can't wait to play around with the 2021 replacement units to see how quick the are in comparison to ours

I would be curious to see, when the spec of the Y2021 model will be available, whether the new IMC shared the same connectivity and same body case with the previous model. In that case a standard exchange should be possible, assuming that all input signals spec (sensor, antenna, ...) did not change.

I've heard it can't be swapped with the new IMC

And they claimed these were "future proofed". :rolleyes:
I'd like them to be able to change from 4G to 5G but that probably won't be possible either.

Tesla is the company that has countless failed computers a few years in. Also they are not the model of good car interior ergonomics. I personally prefer knobs and buttons for everything. The only digital displays should be for the speedometer, clock, and odometer. For everything else my phone is superior.

Agree regarding knobs and buttons. The idea of driving a grotesquely oversized tablet on four wheels with a spartan interior does not appeal. I like cars that feel like cars. That's why I have an I-Pace.

Buttons are separate issue. My friend has one of the early model S cars ~2013. His infotainment unit failed and was replaced with the latest model under warranty last year. He got "free" upgrade from 3G to LTE unit. It is clear they are quite a bit ahead in the software/technology department and are thinking about module compatibility.

The fact that my 1.5 year old car is now obsolete is just sad.

Most cars had modular stereos, DIN and double DIN. Clearly there was a market for upgrades, but I haven't upgraded a stereo in my car in since my 2004 Scion xA needed a stereo. Once they got bluetooth, nothing else mattered. I think Tesla figured out replacement because the alternative was thousands of customers with dead vehicles. That's not so much a positive as it is necessity because of failed hardware.

Also I've seen aftermarket people upgrade their dodge units, and even hack them. There's nothing special here with Tesla.
