The days of conventional gauges displaying speed and temperature are soon to be in the past. Audi, in partnership with computer component manufacturer NVIDIA Corp., has developed a fully digital dashboard, which replaces the instrument cluster in front of the driver. The giant 12.3-inch display has exceptional clarity and top-notch 3-D graphics -- a handy feature for those who have challenges reading key gauges like the speedometer in certain lighting conditions.
The superfast processor that runs the so-called virtual cockpit renders the data so quickly that the needles of the speedometer, rev counter and navigation are displayed with absolute precision. The digital dashboard will be featured on the 2016 Audi TT.
