Trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who revealed details of Apple’s upcoming VR/AR headset, today posted additional information on the processor and when we can expect it wait for the device.
According to Kuo, the headset will have multiple processors with the same processing power as the Apple M1 chip.
We predict that Apple’s AR headset to be released in Q4/2012 will be equipped with two processors. The higher-end processor will have the same computing power as the M1 for Mac, while the lower-end processor will take care of the sensor-related computation.
The power management unit (PMU) design of the high-end microprocessor is similar to that of the M1 because it has the same level of computing power as the M1.
He also said we can expect to see VR/AR headsets pass by Q4 2022, about a year from now.
Earlier Kuo mentioned that the new AR/VR headset will feature WiFi 6E technology for higher bandwidth and low latency.
New WiFi 6E support eliminates the need for a wired connection to a computer. WiFi 6E support will also mean more capacity, higher speeds, and less traffic. It will also allow up to 120Hz streaming.
Apple’s mixed reality headsets will also benefit from advanced sensors, 8K displays, and super-powerful chips. It will have “at least 6-8 optical modules to simultaneously provide continuous video view AR services.” It is said to have two 4K micro OLED screens from Sony.
There are no details on the exact price of the headphones, but according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the device will be “expensive”. Some reports suggest that the device could cost close to $3000 or more.
Besides Apple, Meta, a company formerly known as Facebook, and Sony are also getting ready for new WiFi 6E-enabled AR/VR devices to launch in 2022. We hope to have more information on these soon. this new mixed reality device in the coming days. Meanwhile, we’ll keep you informed of all the latest leaks regarding Apple’s upcoming AR/VR headset, so stay tuned.
