With the newly redesigned platform package of Snapdragon XR2+, better heat dissipation and significant performance headroom has been created to achieve 50% higher sustained power and 30% improved thermal performance1. Each Quest Pro comes with 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and 10 high-res sensors, five inside the headset and five outside, that help enhance a variety of immersive experiences.
