A key feature of the 2024 models is integrating the new central computing platform, ADAM, equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 cockpit chip. It approximately doubles the CPU performance, triples the GPU performance, and eight times the AI computing power compared to the previous 8155 chip. Including four NVIDIA Orin X chips, boasting 48 CPU cores, 256 matrix operation units, 8096 floating-point operation units, and a staggering 68 billion transistors, it culminates in a computing power of up to 1016 TOPS.

Nio’s central computing platform, ADAM, exemplifies a strategic move towards efficiency and performance by consolidating functions across different domains. It significantly reduces the number of controllers required and allows for up to 256 TOPS of computing power to be distributed across smart driving, smart cabin, and vehicle control functionalities. By utilizing dedicated chipsets for the smart cockpit and autonomous driving tasks, Nio enhances these systems’ operational efficiency and effectiveness.

Moreover, the 2024 models will introduce the NOMI GPT function, which Nio claims to be the industry’s first large-scale, multi-modal sensing model deployed entirely on-device. NOMI GPT enables the identification of thousands of items through in-car cameras without an internet connection, ensuring ultra-fast response times and enhanced privacy, as private data does not leave the vehicle. This function transcends conventional question-and-answer and information retrieval capabilities, allowing users to interact with NOMI through natural language, describing their needs and preferences.
