At the 2016 Game Developer Conference on March 14, chip maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) announced its collaboration with Canada-based startup Sulon Technologies, for an AMD-powered virtual reality (VR) headset called Sulon Q.
According to AMD, the Sulon Q will be an all-in-one VR headset which will not have to be tethered to a PC or any other system, like the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive VR headsets. AMD further explained that the Sulon Q will basically be a Windows 10 system which the users will be able to strap onto their head.
As per the details shared by AMD, the Sulon Q VR headset will be powered by a quad-core AMD FX-8800P accelerated processing unit (APU) with a 35W TDP and 8 Radeon R7 graphics cores, and it will leverage AMD's GCN architecture.
In addition, the Sulon Q VR headset will also include 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, 2 USB 3.0 Type A ports, a microHDMI out, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and 256GB of solid-state drive (SSD) storage.
In its description of the Sulon Q VR headset, Sulon has claimed that the device is apparently "the world’s first and only all-in-one headset" for "virtual reality, augmented reality, and spatial computing."
