Teslas may see Steam compatibility on their gaming dashboards in the future, according to a tweet from company founder Elon Musk.
New Tesla models come equipped with AMD GPUs capable of running demanding triple-A video games, including CD Projekt’s infamous Cyberpunk 2077 to pass the time while charging the vehicles.
We’re going through the general case of getting Steam games to run on a Tesla versus specific titles. The former is obviously where we should be in the long term.February 22, 2022
Steam functionality would be a logical choice to expand the playability of Tesla vehicles. Our colleagues at PCGamesN have been speculating that Tesla’s use of Linux (possibly due to a gaming bump with Valve’s Proton compatibility technology) as the dashboard OS, as well as the Model S and Steam Deck’s shared use of AMD RDNA2 graphics make Steam integration a logical choice for the company .
For now, Musk’s tweets on the matter are the only official word on Steam compatibility for Tesla’s dashboard. The end-user integration of the service into Tesla dashboards is probably still a long way off.
We previously reported that Tesla is under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration because some games are playable on the Tesla dashboard while the cars are in motion. This feature was deactivated by Tesla from December 2021, but it underscores the distracted driving ability offered by the extensive multimedia center in Tesla vehicles. Please do not play and drive.
