Qualcomm and Meta announced a multi-year partnership to develop bespoke Snapdragon XR CPUs for "Quest products" and "other gadgets," according to Mark Zuckerberg.
Meta's forthcoming headsets, including a high-end headset dubbed Cambria and updated versions of its cheaper Quest headset, won't operate on Meta-designed hardware.
Apple, Amazon, and Google base product judgments on proprietary chip designs like M2, Graviton3, and Tensor, and Meta has had a team working on the same since 2018.
The announcement states Meta's chips will be "customised." We don't sure how much gap it can put between its "luxury" smartphones and other manufacturers' Snapdragon XR technology.
Meta spokesman Tyler Yee said the business doesn't discuss its future or special chips for Quest products. Meta doesn't believe in a one-size-fits-all strategy for the tech powering its future gadgets
Meta bets big on the metaverse, yet some initiatives have stalled.Meta's VR/AR aspirations are cut down in other ways.
