Watch Qualcomm’s CES 2024 keynote on its highly anticipated AI-powered chip

Qualcomm is ringing in the new year at CES 2024 in Las Vegas with some updates in its chip lineup that power virtual and mixed-reality headsets. The keynote, which will detail more about what’s new for its anticipated AI-powered chip, will happen on January 10 at 5pm ET. It can be streamed on Qualcomm’s website or directly on the CES keynote page.

What to expect

There might be some information divulged about Meta and Qualcomm’s chip collaboration and how it could improve functionality on new gen VR headsets. Qualcomm has said that the technology has been engineered into a single chip architecture that allows it to support smaller and sleeker headsets.

The AI-integrated chip technology will not only make it easier to track a headset user’s hands, controllers and eyes during use, it will also deliver better display resolution per eye. The Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 chip will offer up to 4.3k by 4.3k resolution per eye, as well as upgraded raw image processing and full color display.

Cristiano Amon, the CEO of Qualcomm is also going to focus on generative artificial intelligence and how Snapdragon platforms will integrate AI on devices from smartphones to PC gaming systems. Amon’s keynote is in alignment with the company’s overall move towards investing in AI hardware in its offerings, which we saw in its recently revealed mobile chipset for Android devices.
