"AMD has had zero play in the self-driving market. The net/net here for AMD is that Tesla has confirmed AMD's CPU and GPU roadmaps in a field that nobody was considering as viable; it says that AMD's CPU/GPUs in PC and server markets are the real deal", he added. AMD's stock has lost 1.7% over the past three months through Wednesday, while Nvidia shares have soared 16.5%, the PHLX Semiconductor Index has climbed 5.6% and the S&P 500 has gained 3.0%.

Tesla is basically flat on the news, trading 0.06% lower on Thursday. Tesla represents less than 1% of the current auto market, and Nvidia already has partnerships in place with a bunch of other vehicle manufacturers.
