Tesla revealed its Full Self-Driving (FSD) computer, which supersedes the previous Autopilot hardware, earlier this year. The FSD is equipped with a proprietary Tesla chip, which the company claims outperforms the older Nvidia-based hardware by a factor of 21.

Since April, the new computer has been installed in every new Tesla. Owners of older vehicles who have paid for the Full Self-Driving package are eligible for a free retrofit.

Tesla has begun the process of swapping out the hardware. It may take a while - there are estimated to be some 100,000 eligible vehicles out there - but more and more owners are reporting that they’ve had the new hardware installed. One owner made a video of Tesla’s mobile service team performing the retrofit, and shared it with Electrek.

YouTuber Electric Dreams has a Model X that was equipped with the Autopilot 2.5 hardware. He scheduled an appointment through the Tesla mobile app, and a Tesla technician came to his house. The full installation took about two and a half hours.

Tesla says a new software version with full self-driving capability will be released next year.
