Apple's Rumored AR/VR Headset May Come with an M2 Chip

That's according to the latest report from Blomberg's Mark Gurman.

Apple's long-rumored AR/VR headset may reportedly feature the company's new powerful M2 chip that was introduced at this year's WWDC. That's according to the latest report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman whose sources revealed that the latest version of the device is currently running with the M2 system as well as features 16 gigabytes of RAM.

This new information diverges from several previous reports including the prediction from the notable industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who suggested that Apple's first AR/VR headset would be running on a chip with the same computing power that can be seen in the M1 chip.

Gurman's latest report didn't provide any further details on Apple's upcoming product, however, previous reports including last month's report from The Information forecast that the mixed reality headset (which is said to be a standalone device) is set to feature a multi-chip setup.

The M2 chip was first announced during WWDC 2022 in early June. The new chips are said to start shipping with the 13-inch MacBook Air 2022 and MacBook Pro 2022 in July 2022. They will feature a number of powerful specs including 24GB of unified memory, 100 GB/s of memory bandwidth, an 8-core CPU, and up to a 12-core GPU.

Although the rumored headset has never been officially announced, analysts suggest that Apple may unveil it as early as January 2023.
