From MacRumors’ “Kuo: Apple AR Headset Coming in Late 2022 With Mac-Level Computing Power” posted Friday:
We predict that Apple’s AR headset to be launched in 4Q22 will be equipped with two processors. The higher-end processor will have similar computing power as the M1 for Mac, whereas the lower-end processor will be in charge of sensor-related computing.
The power management unit (PMU) design of the high-end processor is similar to that of M1 because it has the same level of computing power as M1.
My take: I’ll believe this when I see it. The only immediate use-cases I can see for Apple goggles are industrial (not the company’s first market), gaming (ditto) and in a bike helmet (which I imagine as Apple’s added value in the burgeoning e-bike market).
