Posted by at 6:21 am on May 30, 2018

Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon XR1 Platform, a system-on-a-chip dedicated to stand-alone virtual/augmented reality headsets.

Much like Qualcomm’s mobile platforms, the XR1 contains multiple modules that together enable powerful extended reality experiences. The XR1 includes a dedicated Kryo CPU, Adreno GPU, Hexagon VPU, and Qualcomm’s Spectra ISP, in addition to dedicated wifi, security, and location modules.

Qualcomm says the XR1 can handle 4K video playback at 60 frames per second, OLED support, voice-command user interfaces, six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) head tracking and 6DoF/3DoF controller tracking with 20ms latencies. On the audio side it includes aptX/aptX HD, low-latency high-definition surround, and active noise cancellation. The XR1 also packs Qualcomm’s neural networking technology for AI-based prediction and assistance.

Qualcomm has an initial list of hardware partners that have agreed to use the XR1 in their future devices, including Meta, VIVE, Vuzix, and Picoare. Qualcomm says the Snapdragon XR Software Development Kit includes all the tools developers need to put the XR1 to use.
