Qualcomm's Snapdragon XR2 platform takes aim at true mixed reality

Qualcomm will use its newly announced Snapdragon chips to take another swing at the mixed reality market, adding 5G to the mix with the Snapdragon XR2 platform. Qualcomm believes that the on-device horsepower of the recent Snapdragon chips, combined with the “edge cloud” capabilities of the 5G connection, should be enough for true mixed reality: augmented reality in one context, and virtual reality in another.  Put simply, Qualcomm says the Snapdragon XR2 has the capability to deliver 3K x 3K per eye, at 90 frames per second. (Before Qualcomm’s presentation today, the company was also touting 2.5K x 2.5K per eye at 120 frames per second.) Alternatively, it can render 4K video at up to 120Hz, with additional HDR10/HDR10+ support. Qualcomm’s also saying that the platform can support seven distinct cameras, tracking your head, face, the controller, and body, among others. Qualcomm isn't saying, but Moor Insights analyst Anshel Sag tells PCWorld it's a modified Snapdragon 865 inside it, with an image processor that supports the multiple cameras.
