Pegasus takes as a part of 3rd generation of Drive PX Platform and to compared it predecessor technology which can deliver 10x more operation/sec in computing power. Despite this four artificial intelligence system in which two of them will state of the art SoCs Xavier with NVIDIA Volta GPUs which also supports Pegasus.
