Elon Musk followed up Wednesday's surprise Tesla Model S refresh reveal with a bold claim: It can run CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077. An image in Musk's tweet showed a dashboard display-screen featuring The Witcher 3, a 2015 game from the same developer, but Cyberpunk came out just last month.

Console versions of Cyberpunk were beset with performance issues and bugs, even on the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X, leading CD Projekt's co-founder to acknowledge the problems in an apology video.

The Model S's center screen has 10 teraflops of processing power, which Game Awards host Geoff Keighley noted was comparable to the PS5 and considerably more than the 4 teraflops in the Xbox Series S (Microsoft's higher end Series X has 12 teraflops).

Musk also said the Model S screen has "more storage now & easily upgradable."

Neither Tesla nor Cyberpunk developer CD Projekt Red immediately responded to requests for comment.
