+ - Microsoft designed a special processor to handle HoloLens data->

angry tapir writes: Microsoft shared some additional details about the components inside its augmented reality HoloLens headset during the company's Build conference. Like a traditional PC, HoloLens contains a CPU and GPU, said Alex Kipman, a technical fellow in Microsoft's operating system group, on Thursday. But the headset also uses a custom built holographic processing unit to handle data coming from the many sensors contained in the device.
