Qualcomm focuses on a new Wireless VR headset that can also be connected with a wireless-equipped pc. As per the Source, “this headset will be demoed at the Game Developers Conference that is currently going on in San Francisco.” This product could be available for sale in the Asian market this year.
The most special feature of this product is connecting to a PC for extra VR gaming Libraries. At the same time, most other mobile VR headset hasn’t this functionality.
The new Qualcomm “Boundless XR” will work on its own, just like a mobile standalone headset. The headset is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with 6 degrees of flexibility, connecting to “PCs for PC VR” gaming.
The latency level is also surprisingly shallow as 16ms as “Qualcomm” claims. It will help free up some memory and processor in PC because it is designed to process VR technology while connected. The headset is equipped with wireless 802.11ad with “Qualcomm’s” unique software. So only the PC’s gaming console with the exact wireless specifications may connect with this headset.

Qualcomm makes a variety of “Virtual Reality” models. But only a few companies have taken up Qualcomm on those designs, including Facebook, Lenovo, and HTC. Qualcomm says, “the first headset with the new reference design will be a Pico Neo 2 VR headset for the Chinese company Pico VR”. HTC Viva is another partner that is trying to support the new hardware, content, and specification.
This headset is just a reference design; there are huge possibilities to not arrive in the market.
