At the event GDC 2016 Company AMD introduced his own virtual reality helmet called Sulon Q. But do not rush to roll your eyes, because the new device is noticeably different from the analogues Oculus And HTC.
Sulon Q supports simultaneously virtual and complemented reality. Augmented reality (or AR – Augmented Reality) differs from virtual in that it does not draw absolutely new space around a person in the helmet, and complements the existing current. This trumps, for example, the device Hololens from Microsoft.
In addition, inside Sulon Q, a real computer with the necessary components is hiding: AMD FX-8800P processor, video chip Radeon R7, 8 gigabytes of RAM, SSD disk on 256 gigabytes and Windows 10. In general, Sulon Q Welms on your nose (and the back) almost a full-fledged PC, only with a head display instead of a monitor.
By the way, about the display. It consists of two OLED screens, the overall resolution is 2560×1440, the viewing angle is 110 degrees, and the update frequency is 90 Hertz.
AMD plans to release Sulon Q in the middle of 2016, but does not call the price yet. Perhaps we will learn new details about the helmet a little later, since the GDC conference continues.
