Qualcomm Technologies, announced its latest premium-tier XR platform – Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 1 – to fuel the next generation of mixed and virtual (MR and VR) devices, boasting new power and thermal improvements that will allow OEMs to deliver richer metaverse experiences packed into a lighter form factor.
New Platform Package: With a new platform configuration enabling better heat dissipation, significant performance headroom has been created to achieve 50% higher sustained power and 30% improved thermal performance1. This allows more concurrent multimedia and perception technologies to be utilized simultaneously enabling full-sensory interactions, like creating life-like human expressions in the metaverse, without compromising form factor.
Vibrant Mixed Reality Experiences: The Snapdragon XR2+ platform introduces a new image processing pipeline which achieves less than 10ms latency to unlock superior full-color video pass-through MR experiences. The platform enables concurrent perception technologies, including head, hand and controller tracking, 3D reconstruction as well as low latency video pass-through. Seven concurrent cameras allow the physical and virtual worlds to blend into one all-encompassing MR experience through video pass-through alongside precise motion tracking and automatic room mapping. The platform’s high pixel density brings PC-quality virtual landscapes to life, while providing support for multiple sensors and cameras that give nuanced facial expressions to more realistic avatars.
