Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 for reality headsets is 20% faster than its predecessor

Faster and better?

Qualcomm’s fresh-out-of-the-oven Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 single-chip platform, designed for extended reality devices, is an improved version of the Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor released last year.

This new platform brings 4.3K spatial computing at 90 frames per second. Qualcomm says this allows achieving “clear visual effects” for use cases such as room screens, large-scale overlays and virtual desktops.

Qualcomm also claims a 20% bump in CPU frequency and a 15% hike in GPU frequency with the Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 over its predecessor, the XR2 Gen 2. This chip can handle over 12 cameras simultaneously to track hand and body movements.
