Tesla (TSLA) has received back samples of its first chips intended for autonomous driving, and has begun to test on the processors, CNBC reports.
The processors, which are designed to decrease Tesla's reliance on other manufacturers, will be built on top of Advanced Micro Devices' (AMD) intellectual property, the report added.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated earlier this year that capability will be available to consumers in 2019.
Shares of Tesla closed lower on Wednesday, while shares of AMD closed higher over 4.7%.
