Qualcomm’s New Snapdragon 845 Improves VR and AR Performance

CPU Improvements
I am very excited to see what Snapdragon 845 will do for the XR industry, especially the standalone VR and AR solutions that are highly dependent on performance, thermals, and latency. So, what are the improvements exactly? The new Snapdragon 845 Kryo 385 features eight new CPU cores with four ARM Cortex A75 cores and four Cortex A55 cores. These CPU cores are the fastest and most efficient cores that ARM has ever produced, and Qualcomm tweaked them to improve performance and latency. This new CPU improves performance by as much as 25-30 percent which is necessary for freeing up compute resources for other tasks and ensuring high frame rates.

Every one, all around the world...

I wonder if Dr. Fan ever really understood what "stealth" meant....

The possibility is real now that the DAS and Sensor Fusion is Working Properly Thanks to the OLED Display in the New Helmet..F-35 Sensor Performs Ballistic Missile Defense Missions The F-35’s Distributed Aperture Sensor (DAS) has performed an airborne identification and trajectory-oriented target tracking of a ballistic missile in a test off Hawaii

Using early applications of artificial intelligence, computers and aircraft relied upon advanced algorithms to organize sensor information - which was then transmitted to a pilot.
As a key element of the F-35s much-discussed “sensor fusion technology,” the DAS draws upon a 360-degree sensor field of view generated by six cameras strategically placed around the aircraft. The sensor autonomously fuses data from all of the sensors into a single field of view for the pilot.
“With an automated picture, we can get the pilot everything he needs without him needing to go through every step,” Bama said.

Ok fellers, if you click on the tweet then click on the heart ...

💖 you will see that Mr. Garbe "liked" Mr. Kowalski's guess as to the nature of the device. Kowalski's guess was that he might have been beta-testing a prototype of a mixed reality HMD with eMagin 2kX2k displays You really think this guy doesn't know the difference and that's why he is working at Magic Leap now? Look at Garbe's timeline. He lives in a parallel universe. It frightens me that there may be more than one of him out there. He is not going to F around with a 640x480 dinosaur like a z800.

eMagin HMD, MR/AR/XR. You name it Jacob Garbe.

Yes, old news..Magic Leap Seeks to Raise Another $500 Million (Report)

Mixed reality hardware startup Magic Leap is in talks to raise a new $500 million round of funding, according to Bloomberg. The new financing is reportedly being led by Singapore-based Temasek Holdings, and would value the company at around $6 billion.

Magic Leap previously raised more than $1.3 billion from investors including Google, Alibaba and Qualcomm, and was valued $4.5 billion at the point of its last fundraise in early 2016. The company, which is headquartered in Florida, has been developing a pair of mixed reality glasses that would superimpose digital animation over a view of the real world.

Really? neat...

eMagin Display are FR capable, anybody know if the Kopin's Lighning is also? Want to look into that DZ?

Just a fun watch...

Last Feb but somewhat interesting, need one of those police whiteboards, suspects crossed out, circled, eventually winnowing down THE person of interest...

“GF has had a strong foundry relationship with Qualcomm Technologies for many years across a wide range of process nodes,” said Roawen Chen, senior vice president, QCT global operations, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We are excited to see GF making these new investments in differentiated technology and expanding global capacity to support Qualcomm Technologies in delivering the next wave of innovation across a range of integrated circuits that support our business.”
“Collaborative foundry partnerships are critical for us to differentiate ourselves in the competitive market for mobile SoCs,” said Min Li, chief executive officer of Rockchip. “We are pleased to see GF bringing its innovative 22FDX technology to China and investing in the capacity necessary to support the country’s growing fabless semiconductor industry.”
“As our customers increasingly demand more from their mobile experiences, the need for a strong manufacturing partner is greater than ever,” said Joe Chen, co-chief operating officer of MediaTek. “We are thrilled to have a partner like GF that invests in the global capacity we need to deliver powerful and efficient mobile technologies for markets ranging from networking and connectivity to the Internet of Things.”
