The folks at Windows Central has posted the specifications of Microsoft’s Hololens.
Hololens is Microsoft’s foray into the virtual reality world. And considering what we know of the capabilities of the Hololens, none of its spec are revolutionary
OS: 32-bit Windows 10.0.11802.1033
CPU: Intel Atom x5-Z8100 Airmont, 1.04GHz, 64-bit capable
GPU: HoloLens Processing Unit (HPU)
Dedicated Video Memory: 114 MB
Shared System Memory: 980 MB
Storage: 64GB (54.09 GB available)
App Memory Usage Limit: 900 MB
Battery: 16,500 mWh
Camera Photos: 2.4 MP (2048×1152)
Camera Video: 1.1 MP (1408×792)
Video Speed: 30 FPS
The processor is hardly going to pull up any trees clocked at 1.04GHz, but it is clearly enough to manage the HoloLens and the 32-bit operating system. In terms of RAM, there is 2GB providing the engine for the processors to do their thing.
64G of on board storage should be more than enough considering Microsoft will undoubtedly be pushing its own cloud storage options. Windows Central says it has already stored plenty of content on the system and has barely used up any storage.
Well, the only examples available at the moment are development kits, and these are always more expensive than consumer examples. Microsoft has not discussed how much the HoloLens will be when it is launched to consumers later this year. Judging the hardware involved, is shouldn’t be quite as cost prohibitive as we originally thought it would be.
