Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 1 chip released

Qualcomm announced the launch of its latest flagship XR platform, the first-generation Snapdragon XR2+ platform, to help the next-generation mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR) terminals achieve high power consumption and thermal performance. promote. Compared with the Snapdragon XR2 platform, the Snapdragon XR2+ achieves a 50% increase in battery life and a 30% increase in heat dissipation, enabling a richer immersive metaverse experience in a smaller and thinner device form factor.

At present, the Snapdragon XR platform has enabled more than 60 XR terminals around the world. Several OEMs have planned to launch commercial devices powered by the Snapdragon XR2+ platform, which is expected to be available by the end of 2022. The Meta Quest Pro is the first product to use the Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 1.

The first-generation Snapdragon XR2+ platform features the following:

  • New Platform Kit: A new platform configuration that supports better cooling for a significant performance boost, the platform delivers 50% better battery life and 30% better cooling performance. This enables the platform to support more concurrent multimedia processing and perception technologies to enable full-sensory interactions, such as creating lifelike expressions in the metaverse, without sacrificing the terminal form factor.
  • Vivid MR experience: The Snapdragon XR2+ platform introduces a new image processing pipeline that can achieve sub-10ms latency, enabling an excellent full-color video see-through MR experience. The platform supports parallel perception technologies, including head, gesture, and handle tracking, 3D reconstruction, and low-latency video perspective. Seven parallel cameras enable the integration of real and virtual worlds into a full range of MR experiences through video perspective, precise motion tracking, and automatic indoor map building. At the same time, the platform's high pixel density enables PC-level virtual landscapes and the ability to support multiple sensors and cameras simultaneously, giving more realistic avatars nuanced facial expressions.

Several OEMs have plans to launch commercial devices powered by the Snapdragon XR2+ platform.
