HTC recently announced the new Vive Pro 2, a new virtual reality device with some high end updated features and various changes.
Let’s dive deep into the specs, features and other important things this handset possesses.
The changes to the are the new display that now offers 5k resolution(2448* 2448 PPE) and a 120-degree field view that is paired with 120HZ. The wireless adapter refresh rate is still limited to 90HZ only. But this year is still a downside cause the previous version had a dual AMOLED display, rather than the IPS LCD, which they included this year.
Speaking on the display front itself, the all-new Vive Pro 2 also supports DSC (Display Stream Compression)- seen for the first time in a VR headset where they worked on both Nvidia and AMD. Similarly, if you want to enjoy such high and smooth refresh rates, you need a bulky PC setup. HTC also mentioned that the headset would deliver minimal motion blur, and the company also claims that they have reduced the meshed lines that are noticed, commonly known as the screen door effect. On the contrary, many firms have already reduced it drastically, like the Oculus Quest 2 and HP Reverb G2.
OTHER IMPORTANT FEATURES
The Vive Pro 2 has the usual high-end features that you expect like G-sensor, gyroscope, proximity, IPD, steam tracking 2.0, dual-microphone including modifiable straps, quick-adjust size dials, and flexible interpupillary distance (IPD). The incorporated headphones are Hi-Res Audio Certified and support 3D spatial sound; the headset also works with third-party headphones. This headset will also work with all Vive Steam VR accessories, including Vive trackers, Vive Facial Tracker, and other controllers and accessories.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
HTC Vive Pro 2 is priced at $799 ( Rs. 58,700) for just the headset, and the whole kit costs $1,399 ( Rs.1 lakh). All this will be ready for purchase from June 4, but you can pre-order them if you want.
