Meta teams up with Qualcomm to develop VR chipsets for Metaverse Apps

At the Consumer Electronics Show (IFA 2022) in Berlin, Germany, which kicked off on the 2nd, Meta and Qualcomm announced an expanded partnership and a multi-year agreement to design VR chipsets for Metaverse applications.

Qualcomm has partnered with Meta for over 7 years to create a great XR experience. Driven by the technology of the Snapdragon XR platform and the Meta Quest platform, the two parties cooperated on the spatial computing required by the Metaverse, but did not further disclose the details of the agreement and financial terms.

“We are working with Qualcomm on a VR chip, powered by the Snapdragon XR platform and technology, to create a future Meta Quest product roadmap,” Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a press release.

Unlike mobile phones, building a VR world presents novel challenges in terms of spatial computing, cost, and form factor.

He believes that the newly developed chipset is expected to help Meta continue to push VR to its limits and provide users with a great experience.

The Meta Quest product is a line of VR headsets, and the Meta Quest 2 is even Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR2 chip.

In the field of smartphones, major manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung have made their own chips for their mobile phones, creating products that are better than using off-the-shelf chips and distinguishing themselves from competitors;

Meta invested in developing a VR chipset for a reason, but also wanted to create a unique experience for users.

Zuckerberg revealed in a recent Podcast interview that a new VR headset will be released in October.

Built-in new features to help users experience “social presence”, presumably the Project Cambria product that has been announced to the outside world, rumored to be called “Meta Quest Pro”, which includes advanced eye and face tracking capabilities.
