The headset features Qualcomm Snapdragon’s fresh XR2 chip, designed specifically for VR and AR goggles, which promises about twice the performance of both the CPU and GPU compared to the previous-generation Snapdragon 835. The chip comes with 6 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of storage – Quest 2 also has a “nearly 4K” resolution display, which is also nearly double its predecessor, according to the video. The device will, of course, support all content created for the original Quest. The release date and price of Oculus Quest 2 are not yet known.
