With an impressive 5K resolution (that's 2.5K for each eye) and a 120Hz refresh rate with an advanced panel sporting, well, advanced features -- the new HTC VIVE Pro 2 is looking to be the premium VR headset for PC gaming.
For the development of the panel HTC has worked closely with both NVIDIA and AMD for what is calls "Display Stream Compression" which will lead to the increased image quality whilst supporting new and older GPUs -- though DisplayPort 1.4 is required for the full 5K resolution.
HTC notes that the new dual stacked-lens design means "minimal motion blur and the ‘screen door effect’ is virtually eliminated, giving people a more natural and immersive experience".
The HTC VIVE Pro 2 also feature an impressive 120-degree field of view.
Ergonomics have also been improved and as a premium headset headphones are included in addition to adjustable IPD and a sensory overload in the form of: G-sensor, gyroscope, proximity, IPD sensor, and SteamVR Tracking V2.0.
The HTC VIVE Pro 2 in its headset only version will be available at an introductory price of $1,219 AUD, with pre-orders open now with a release date of June 4. The full-kit VIVE Pro 2, which includes Base Station 2.0 and VIVE Controllers, will be available from August for $2,199 AUD.
