OCT 11, 2022, SAN DIEGO – Today, both the Snapdragon® XR2+ Gen 1 Platform and Meta Quest Pro were announced at Meta Connect 2022. With the newly redesigned platform package of Snapdragon XR2+, better heat dissipation and significant performance headroom has been created to achieve 50% higher sustained power and 30% improved thermal performance. Each Quest Pro comes with 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and 10 high-res sensors, five inside the headset and five outside, that help enhance a variety of immersive experiences.
The Meta Quest Touch Pro controllers are powered by Snapdragon® 662 Platform, which allows them to self-track through multiple embedded positional cameras and offers ultra-low latency to the headset; when combined with face and eye tracking, your avatar can now reflect you more naturally in VR.
