Snippet -

Chip manufacturers Intel have announced the End of Life of the Atom processor chip that powers Microsoft’s HoloLens. Final orders on the Atom x5-Z8100P SoC will be taken on 30th September, 2017, with final shipments expected on 30th October.

Microsoft are one of the very few customers using the Atom x5-Z8100P SoC, since it is a semi-custom chip made to Microsoft’s specifications, it seems likely that the end-of-life time was previously agreed between Intel and Microsoft. The timing of the announcement along with Microsoft’s previous announcements of its plans for the next-generation HoloLens indicates that Microsoft are keeping on track with plans for the new version of the mixed reality (MR) platform.

As previously indicated by Microsoft Research engineer Doug Burger, Microsoft are planning for the new version of the HoloLens to include an AI co-processor to allow for object and voice recognition functions without needed to be attached to an external internet connection. Microsoft are hoping that the ‘HoloLens 2’ will be able to function as a standalone device, running an independent version Windows 10 and using internal battery power.
