The Apple AR Headset comes at the end of 2022 with Mac-level computing power

Apple's rumored Augmented Reality Headset (AR) is expected to be released late next year and will feature a pair of processors that will support their advanced capabilities, according to a new study by a leading analyst.

According to Kuo, the high-tech main processor is said to be similar to chip M1 unveiled by Apple for its first set of Apple silicon Macs last year, while a lower-end processor will manage aspects of the device related to the sensors.

Kuo says the original AR Headset will be able to run independently without having to connect to a Mac or iPhone, and Apple intends to support a "full range of applications" to replace ‌iPhone‌ within ten years.

"We anticipate that Apple's AR headphones, which will be released in the 4th quarter of 2022, will be equipped with two processors. The high-tech processor will have similar computing power to the M1 for Mac, while the lower-tech processor will be responsible for sensor-related tasks, ”Kuo said.

The design of the power management unit (PMU) of the advanced technology processor is similar to that of the M1, because it has the same level of computing power as the M1.

In addition to AR, Kuo says the headset will also be able to support virtual reality (VR) experiences, thanks to a pair of 4K Micro OLED screens from Sony, which require the computing power of an M1 chip.

Apple's AR Headset requires a separate processor, as the computing power of the sensor is significantly higher than that of the iPhone. For example, the AR headset requires at least 6-8 optical units to provide continuous AR video services to users at the same time. By comparison, an iPhone requires up to 3 optical units that operate simultaneously and does not require continuous calculation.

Last week, Kuo said that both the upcoming headset and the iPhone 14 to be released next year will support Wi-Fi 6E technology, which offers increased bandwidth and lower interference required for AR experiences. and VR.
