This has been reported by the analyst Mark Gurman in his ‘newsletter’ Power On, in Bloomberg, who expects Apple to use advanced internal technologies in its next viewers that will lead them to cost above 2,000 dollars at launch, higher than that of other current viewers.
The Bloomberg reporter claims that the new Apple product will have two processors inside, and that one of them will have a power comparable to that of its high-end model M1 Pro in MacBook Pro computers.

M1 Pro, which was introduced in October, has features such as a design in which the CPU and GPU do not work separately but are integrated, a unified board design that can achieve up to 200GB per second, and support for 32GB of unified memory and 33.7 billion transistors drive the CPU up to 70 percent higher performance.
Apple would choose this chip for its new headsets not because of its more powerful CPU but because of its graphics capabilities, as the M1 Pro has 14 to 16 graphics cores.

This chip is expected to support other features in the headset such as multiple displays, including high-resolution panels up to 8K, an interchangeable prescription lens option, and advanced audio technology.
Regarding the name, Gurman has also assured that Apple Glass is not yet a safe name and that the product could reach the market under the name Apple Vision, more likely than other names such as Apple Reality, Sight or Lens.
