AMD erweitert sein Portfolio im Bereich Virtual und Augmented Reality. Durch den Kauf von Nitero, einem der Pioniere im Bereich Millimeter Wave Solutions, kann AMD Herstellern von VR-Headsets nun die notwendige Technologie für kabellose Lösungen zur Verfügung stellen. Diese hat das Potential, Multi-Gigabite-Übertragungsraten mit niedriger Latenz in Room-Scale VR-Anwendungen zu ermöglichen. Hierzu einige Auszüge aus der originalen Pressemitteilung:

„Unwieldly headset cables remain a significant barrier to drive widespread adoption of VR,” said Mark Papermaster, AMD chief technology officer and senior vice president. “Our newly acquired wireless VR technology is focused on solving this challenge, and is another example of AMD making long-term technology investments to develop high-performance computing and graphics technologies that can create more immersive computing experiences.”

Nitero has designed a phased-array beamforming millimeter wave chip to address the challenges facing wireless VR and AR. Using high-performance 60 GHz wireless, this technology has the potential to enable multi-gigabit transmit performance with low latency in room-scale VR environments. The beamforming characteristics solve the requirement for line-of-sight associated with traditional high-frequency mm-wave systems, potentially eliminating wired VR headsets and enabling users to become more easily immersed in virtual and augmented worlds. “Our world class engineering team has been focused on solving the difficult problem of building wireless VR technologies that can be integrated into next-generation headsets,” said Nitero co-founder and CEO Pat Kelly who has joined AMD as corporate vice president, Wireless IP. “We are excited to play a role in furthering AMD’s long-term technology vision.”
