Recent articles

Yesterday, HTC announced the VIVE Pro 2 during the digital VIVECON 2021 event. The new edition of the Virtual Reality headset will be available from June 4 for $ 799, but if you sign up for the newsletter and pre-order before May 31, you will get a $ 50 coupon, which reduces the price to $ 749 By the way, that’s without the controllers and lighthouses to track, although the purchase does come with a two-month membership to the VIVEPort Infinity subscription service.

As for the specs, the VIVE Pro 2 touts ‘5K resolution’, that is, 4896×2448 pixels (2448×2448 per eye). This is significantly higher than rumored PlayStation VR 2 headset specifications, although Sony’s target price will likely be much lower.

The VIVE Pro 2 also has a slightly improved field of view (although still lower than the Valve Index’s 130 ° or the even wider FoV enabled by Pimax headsets) and refresh rate. It is also compatible with the VIVE Wireless Adapter, although in wireless mode it only supports a resolution of 2448 x 1224 and a refresh rate of 90 Hz on boot; the resolution will be increased to 3264 x 1632 with a post-launch update.
