Audi: New MMI powered by nVidia

Audi MMI
Some additional background information here about the collaboration between Audi and nVidia for the new MMI. Interesting!

Under a name MMI 3G [3rd Generation Man-Machine Interface], buyers of Audi cars can now experience a system that I would seriously consider to be true next-gen. Personally, I have found that systems from BMW and Mercedes systems are really complicated to navigate, especially while driving. I had very limited experience with Audi [less than 200km/120 miles], but their system looked like it needs a touch of intuitiveness as well.

Luckily, Futuremark is undergoing a transformation from benchmark-only company to a company that produces consumer-friendly products as well. First, the company released affordable-yet-addictive PC shooter Shattered Horizon and now Audi started shipping MMI 3G [yes, last year Audi and Futuremark were demonstrating MMI3D].

The interface brings climate control, radio, multimedia player, games, advanced 3D GPS navigation, telemetry data, speed and other measurements all “under one roof.” The system was in the works for over three years but now the time has finally come to see it in production.
