MCU Tester

Background

In the Model S and X, Tesla uses two different MCUs (Main Computer Unit). This test checks which hardware is in your vehicle when run from the vehicle’s browser.

Notes
  • Platform indicates the MCU processor, the Nvidia Tegra 3 (arm) in MCU1, and Intel Atom E8000 series CPU (x86_64) in MCU2. MCU2 started shipping in all Tesla S/X manufactured at the start of March 2018.
  • UserAgent relates to the hardware and browser software in use. The browser was upgraded in version 2018.14 for MCU1. Expected values were collected in April 2018
  • This utility has not been tested with the Model 3 yet and the display value may not be accurate.
What’s New in MCU2
  • Faster CPU, results in snapper operation
  • WiFi Support for 5 GHz band
  • External Bluetooth Antenna (perhaps for future feature – using a phone as a key like M3)
