According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s AR / VR headsets will use the same 96W USB-C power supply included with the high-end 14-inch MacBook Pro.
In a research note shared over the past few hours, Kuo said the Apple headset will use a 96 W power supply. According to the analyst, this means that the device will have similar computing power as the latest Macs, given that the same power adapter is included in the box of the high-end MacBook Pro 14s.
Kuo also reiterated that Apple’s first headset will ship two processors – a 5nm chip and a 4nm chip – both produced by TSMC. The high-end processor is expected to have similar computing power to the M1 chip for Mac, while the low-end processor would handle the headset sensors.
The analyst then added that this device will offer an innovative experience, with the seamless transition between AR and VR modes, so much so that it will be at least two or three years ahead of competing products in terms of the power of calculation.
