In a bid to enhance its computing technology, the American-Chinese multinational technology company, Lenovo has announced a strategic partnership with Nvidia to build cars by unveiling a new car computing concept machine. Lenovo disclosed this today while releasing a strategic plan and development vision for vehicle computing.

According to the firm, it will not build cars by itself; rather, it will combine its growing computing expertise with the requirements of automotive intelligence and collaborate with leading industry figures like Nvidia to develop innovative solutions to enhance the experience of smart driving and the cockpit.

Super Brain: Lenovo’s Car Computing Concept

As part of the vehicle strategic plan with Nvidia, Lenovo’s car computing concept machine was officially unveiled with the name “super brain.” The concept machine is based on the DRIVE Thor. At the same time, the firm also showcased three products for its car computing namely the Taishan 1.0 cabin-driving integrated domain controller concept machine, the Phoenix 1.0 smart cockpit domain controller prototype, and the Hengshan 1.0 smart driving domain controller prototype.

One of them, the Taishan 1.0 cabin-driving integrated domain controller, combines smart driving operations with integrated driving parking and a smart cockpit. The CPU processing power of the NVIDIA Thor X processor used as an ultra-high-performance domain controller, is 630K DMIPS, while the AI computing power is 1000TOPS@INT. 

Additionally, the Super Brain can adapt how much computational power is allocated to tasks linked to smart cockpits or autonomous driving. The current generation of the vehicle domain controller platform will be independently developed by Lenovo using the new NVIDIA DRIVE Thor system-on-chip (SoC), which was introduced by the company in March of this year.

As of now, the NVIDIA DRIVE Thor platform has only been adopted by Lenovo, a Tier 1 company. However, it has been discovered that the DRIVE Thor-based domain control platform architecture called Super Brain will eventually become Lenovo’s high-end core product line for automotive computing, and associated products are anticipated to go into mass production in early 2025.
