You might be able to grab a Mac Pro wheels kit for $700, but how does a gaming PC crammed into a whole other set of wheels – a driveable toy Tesla Model S – sound? A YouTuber has posted a clip showcasing exactly this – a “high-end PC that can also be driveable” – or, put another way, “A mini Tesla that also has a PC in it”.

The company’s most advanced node today is 7nm, or N7, which is used across AMD’s Ryzen and Navi range, but soon it will be shifting to 7nm+ (N7+), 5nm (N5), and then onto 3nm (N3).
