After a very long wait, details regarding the next version of the Microsoft HoloLens are slowly starting to solidify. We have already heard the device will be lighter, cheaper and with a larger field of view, and now the processor powering the device has leaked also. According to Engadget’s sources, HoloLens 2 will be powered by the recently announced Qualcomm XR1 processor, which has been designed with the express purpose of delivering a “high quality” VR and AR experience. XR1 integrates Qualcomm Technologies’ heterogeneous computer architecture, including the ARM-based multi-core Central Processing Unit (CPU), a vector processor, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Qualcomm® AI Engine. Other key features include an advanced XR software service layer, machine learning, the Snapdragon XR Software Development Kit (SDK) and Qualcomm Technologies connectivity and security technologies. The XR1 platform also provides an AI engine for on-device processing. This engine provides the ability to process AI-use cases and runs high performing, power-efficient machine learning based computer vision algorithms that can help with key AR use cases like better pose prediction, object classification, etc. Want more visit OUR FORUM.
