Against all odds, AMD announced its virtual and augmented reality headset with a partnership with Sulon Technologies. Sulon Q stands out as being completely wireless and incorporate all the hardware in the hull, so you can use its all functions without connected to any system (something like Microsoft HoloLens). AMD is calling it the “first and only all-in-one, tether-free, ‘wear and play’ spatially aware headset for VR and AR.”
Sulon Q: AMD-Powered “Spatially Aware” VR/AR Headset
Let us begin with the specifications. These glasses have an OLED panel of 2K resolution 2560 x 1440 pixels capable of reaching 90 Hz and offering a viewing angle of 110 degrees. Sulon Q is also equipped with the spatial 3D audio technology “GenAudio AstoundSound ” we can use it via connection a headset with 3.5mm jack connection and configuration infuses a dual microphone that will for cancelling the ambient noise to suppress and improve the listening experience.
“When you experience augmented reality the Sulon way, your physical world is not replaced, its enhanced,” reads a line from its description. “Everywhere you look your full field of view is the physical world you know, seamlessly augmented with new realities. It s the best of both worlds, literally.”
We continue with the tracking technology “Sulon Spatial processing Unit“, which combine the technologies of image processing, real-time mapping and real-time environment, monitoring from inside to outside, put another way, it combines Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. In terms of connectivity, we have the WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, two USB 3.0 Type-A (full size) and a microHDMI.
As if that were not enough, inside the glasses we have a complete computer equipped with an AMD FX-8800P APU featuring four cores with Radeon R7 Graphics based on AMD Graphics Core Next architecture and support Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) technology and Sulon Spatial Processing Unit (SPU). Such APU is supported by 8GB of DDR3 RAM, an SSD storage (SSD) of 256 GB which integrates standard operating system Windows 10 “Project Dragon” with technology AMD LiquidVR.
Sulon Q will be much more expensive than the HTC Vive.
