Oculus Quest 2 Lands, Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 for Power and Performance

If you’ve read the book “Ready Player One” you know it’s extremely uneven, but the main driver of the action is an immersive virtual reality experience. We’re not quite at the point of living a whole life in VR, but it is getting faster and more immersive, and with the new Oculus Quest 2 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2, it’s a tiny bit closer to reality than it used to be!

Qualcomm puts out an immense array of chips and hardware, and most of the time, if you think about Qualcomm at all, it’s in the context of powering your smartphone. But they also work to make AI, virtual reality, and graphics processing better every generation, and that’s what they’ve managed to bring to the Oculus 2. The Snapdragon XR2 platform allows for 50% more pixels than the original Oculus Quest, 11x the AI processing power, and faster wifi, without harming the battery life. Inside the new Oculus Quest 2, it’s Qualcomm’s platform doing a lot of the heavy lifting to give you the speediest and most realistic experience possible.

Virtual reality is swiftly moving from science fiction to everyday life, and Qualcomm is there to make sure it lives up to the hype! The future can be yours, preordered for only $299!
