Qualcomm Incorporated announced that it has acquired assets from a leader in the gesture recognition field, GestureTek. The acquisition gives Qualcomm ownership of certain intellectual property assets related to gesture recognition, as well as key engineering resources. Gesture recognition technology will be integrated into Qualcomm’s current and next-generation Snapdragon processors.
Year-to-year gain of 179%, down 5% from last quarter
Qualcomm led the industry in introducing variable rate shading (VRS) with the Snapdragon 888 last September. Apple filed a patent on VSR in 2019, Samsung has it in their GPU, and Arm’s Immortalis-G715 introduced it in June of this year. With all that development, someone had to test it. Who better than the folks at Basemark?
