Microsoft HoloLens-Devkit Specifications Appear Online

 

The specifications of the HoloLens-devkit by Microsoft have been published. The headset runs on a custom version of 32-bit Windows 10, using an Intel Atom-CPU of the Braswell-generation and 2GB of RAM.

The specifications were published by Windows Central, who ran Aida64 Mobile on their unit. The CPU, an Intel Atom x5-Z8100 of the Braswell-generation, isn't particularly powerful. It features four logical cores, each running at 1.04 GHz. Since the device has only 2GB of RAM, the device runs on 32-bit Windows, rather than 64-bit, which the CPU is capable of. Since the HoloLens costs $3,000 at the moment, these specifications seem rather underwhelming.

The headset sports 64GB of storage, which should be more than enough. Only 54GB is usable after the OS, though. The battery is a 16.5Wh one, which should last about two hours. The built-in camera can shoot pictures of up to 2.4 megapixels, and video's of 1.1 megapixels at 30fps.

But why does the HoloLens cost a small fortune? It's probably the Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) and the device's many sensors, which scan the room in real-time, that ramp up the cost dramatically. There is the possibility that the price will fall when Microsoft ramps up the device's production, though. Perhaps the specifications will have changed by that time, too.
