Qualcomm Announces 4K 60FPS Capable CPU/GPU For Standalone VR And AR Products

Its called XR1, and is a System On Chip for standalone VR/AR products that don't need a PC. The first devices to use XR1 should ship this year or in early 2019.

Quote: That said, Qualcomm is slotting the XR1 below its existing Snapdragon 845—the chip powering most of the year’s highest-end smartphones—in
terms of memory bandwidth and GPU power. It is primarily aiming XR1
devices at “lean back” experiences like 360-degree video viewing, at
least to start.

Even still, the company says the XR1 can output video up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second...

So it's weaker than a modern cell phone and can only output VIDEO at 4K/60fps, evidently. Its processing power so far isn't impressive, though details are thin. I doubt this thing could push gaming or any process-based content anywhere near that resolution and framerate.
