Qualcomm posted in a blog post about its continuous working to improve and transform XR performance.
The new Boundless XR can be connected to PC because of the dual-mode HMD that is created to make a simple, ease-of-use experience when differentiating to many of the PC VR solutions today. The solution includes six degrees of freedom (6DoF) head and a tracker that will eliminate an external accessory set up. It is also supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors.
The company added “This integrated solution will be commercially available this year to QTI’s customers through our Snapdragon 845 Reference Design, alongside the collaboration of various partners. Pico is our first HMD OEM to announce support for the Boundless XR for PC experience with its Pico Neo 2 device, which should be coming to market in the second half of 2019. WNC also has a reference design solution for the PC 60-GHz access point. HTC VIVE and VIVEPORT will both work to support the new specification through hardware and content, and others like automotive visualization specialist ZeroLight and Framestore have expressed interest in leveraging this solution as a path to expand reach.”
