Mobileye Shows Progress on Multiple Fronts

Mobileye announced a new system-on-chip (SoC) that is purpose-built for autonomous vehicles (AVs). Built on Mobileye’s industry-leading EyeQ® technology, EyeQ® Ultra does the work of 10 EyeQ5 SoCs in a single package and was designed to deliver the optimum power performance of a fully self-driving vehicle.

During the news conference, Shashua was joined by the CEOs from two of the world’s largest automakers to announce expansions of their longstanding relationships with Mobileye. A recap of Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess’ recent car ride with Shashua in Munich was used to announce VW’s application of Mobileye’s advanced mapping technology in its driver-assistance features for the VW, Škoda and Seat brands.

Shashua also welcomed Ford CEO Jim Farley to discuss the expanded relationship between Mobileye and Ford as they deliver ever-more advanced driver-assistance solutions via the Ford BlueCruise platform.

Mobileye also announced two firsts with Geely’s Zeekr brand – a level 4 consumer AV expected to begin production in 2023 and the launch and shipment to customers of the industry’s first fully capable level 2+ vehicle equipped with a 360-degree surround view sensing system and driving policy for the industry’s most advanced longitudinal and lateral control in the market today.

Arc Set to Transform the Discrete Graphics Industry

Intel marked a new era in the discrete graphics market by announcing shipment of Intel® Arc™ graphics (code-named “Alchemist”) to original equipment manufacturer customers. Intel Arc graphics is the brand for Intel’s upcoming consumer high-performance graphics product. It delivers new choice to the industry, including many all-Intel discrete graphics platforms. With more than 50 new mobile and desktop customer designs announced with Intel Arc graphics, including with Acer, ASUS, Clevo, Dell, Gigabyte, Haier, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, MSI and NEC, it is an exciting time for gamers and creators around the world.

Lenovo is committed to making smarter, immersive PC experiences for all. Working with Intel, we’re bringing the new Intel Arc line of discrete graphics products to the market, starting with the latest Lenovo Yoga 7i. Intel’s Arc discrete graphics work in harmony with their processors and will help Lenovo offer more choice in consumer devices, delivering exciting visuals for gamers, creators, and everyone,” said Johnson Jia, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Business Segment in Lenovo’s Intelligent Devices Group.

Intel Arc graphics will offer industry-leading advanced features such as hardware-accelerated Ray Tracing, Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) AI-driven upscaling technology and Intel® Deep Link technology.

Intel announced ISV partner momentum with its XeSS AI-driven upscaling technology, which is currently being integrated into many game titles across a range of publishers, including exclusive integration into Kojima Production’s Death Stranding Director’s Cut, which also includes core optimizations for 12th Gen Intel Core processors.

We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Intel for the Death Stranding Director’s Cut edition on PC. Death Stranding has been a hugely popular game with PC players and we’re excited to see how Intel’s new XeSS technology will enhance player experiences for Director’s Cut,” said Neil Rally, president of 505 Games.
