"Although based on Linux, CUE does not appear to be compliant with the Genivi Alliance's Genivi spec, as are the recently announced MontaVista Automotive Technology Platform (ATP) or Mentor Embedded Linux In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) Base Platform stacks.

The unnamed system on chip (SoC) is said to include three cores, each of which operates at 400 MIPS. The processor is 3.5 times faster than existing console computer systems, according to Cadillac, which didn't offer specific comparisons.
