Oculus Quest 2 VR headset

What is VR? 

VR (Virtual Reality) is a technology that allows you to have real-like experience by looking closely into high-resolution computer graphic world through special lenses.

What types of VR headsets are in the market?

VR headset is divided into three types depending on the performance of displays and lenses that can create more realistic virtual world and minimize motion sickness.

  • HTC Vive Pro, Pimax Vision, Valve Index, and Oculus Rift, which have high-performance displays and lenses but requires PC connection. The price is quite high.
  • Oculus Quest 2, which has own graphic engine so that it can be operated without PC, but the performance of display and lenses is slightly lower. PC connection is also possible, and the price is cheaper than high-end products.
  • Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, which use a smartphone display and graphic engine, and provide only lenses and headset functions. You can find many of these low-end products on the market, and most of them are not much expensive.

Oculus Quest 2

Compared to other high-end products, Oculus Quest 2 is easy to set up and the price is lower, so it has been receiving lots of favorable reviews since the release in 2020. The performance of display and lenses is somewhat lower than high-end models, but the great advantage of Oculus Quest 2 is that you can enjoy it without PC through its own graphic engine. 

Compared to the previous model, Oculus Quest 2 uses the upgraded Snapdragon XR2 chipset for its own graphic engine and CPU. In addition, the display resolution has been improved from 1,440x1,600 to 1,832x1,920 and the refresh rate has also been increased from 72Hz to Max. 90Hz. With this performance improvement, you can experience more clear virtual world than the previous model. In the future, it may be planned to add a wireless connection function with PC and increase the refresh rate up to 120Hz.

Wanna be a pilot in the virtual world?

The best advantage of Oculus Quest 2 is that PC connection is also possible with Oculus Link cable. With this PC connection, Oculus Quest 2 can operate high-end games beyond its own graphic performance, so you can become a pilot in the virtual world through the real-like flight simulation games such as Flight Simulator 2020 or DCS (Digital Combat Simulator).

Conclusion

As Oculus Quest 2 is based on the PC-free mobile form, I think that most of users will try to enjoy games such as Beat Saber and Hyper Dash which can be operated by Quest 2 own graphic engine and CPU. However, why don't you sometimes connect Quest 2 to your PC and become a pilot in a real-like virtual world?
