OCULUS QUEST 2: THIRD-GENERATION VR

We could see it on the Gear VR headset for free, which gives you access to the full range of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets. This becomes particularly evident when some of the world’s best developers are funded to develop VR games that could not possibly recoup the cost of developing their original games. Nowhere, however, has Facebook exerted as much control over its Oculus quest game as it has over Oculus Rift and Vive. Facebook has officially updated its Oculus Quest and introduced Oculus Quest 2.0.

BASICS

The all-in-one virtual reality headset will be improved on its predecessor, adding some new sleek features. Such upgrades come in the form of a faster 90 Hz refresh rate display, which is designed to help alleviate the sensation of motion sickness that can accompany wearing VR headsets. It also has an improved screen resolution that promises more immersive experiences, such as watching movies in art cinema. The Oculus Quest 2 will be the absolute best VR headset you can buy, as its improved screens and resolution ensure the best experience in class. Although the Quest headset didn’t hit the market until 2019 and even won Facebook’s Product of the Year award, it was so good that it was hard to see how Facebook could improve it.

The Oculus Quest 2 is a standout device that comes with changing upgrades, improved performance and a host of new features. To deliver the best possible VR experience, they will be releasing the latest version of Facebook’s flagship virtual reality headset and delivering a complete redesign of its design, technology and performance. The Quest 2 will also include a host of new games and other experiences, including the Oculus Quest 3, the first VR game ever for Oculus Rift, as well as many other new features.

In the future, Oculus says it will focus on standalone VR headsets, meaning that Oculus will end production of its PC products – connected Rift S products by 2021. The Facebook Connect virtual conference unveiled the OculusQuest 2 at the company’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California, on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. One of the biggest differences between the new Oculus Quest 2 and the original Oculus Quest is that it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. With the introduction of Oculus Quest 2, Facebook announced that it would discontinue its Oculus Rift headset. It’s more powerful, has a better screen and can be much more immersive than its predecessor, the Oculus Rift. It was said that it was able to develop better screens and be more efficient in terms of its computing power.

The Oculus Quest 2 promises to make a big leap over the original and it is equipped with everything you need to start playing. Facebook has unveiled OculusQuest 2, which includes a new screen, a better screen and a much more powerful processor. It is a powerful gaming PC that requires much more power than its predecessor, but not as much as the previous version. From a technical point of view, Oculus Quest 2 is a big step forward for VR, but we would like to see more games take advantage of the new technology. From this, we conclude that we must wait until some titles make full use of the additional power.

Fortunately, all titles previously released on the original Quest work seamlessly with the Quest 2, and all the games you already own will be easily converted to the new headset. There are no applications that run exclusively on it, which means that there are no games that make the most of the fast processor. There are a handful of games that support hand tracking, but although it is not the most accurate tracking experience in the world, most games are good when you use the controllers. Simply donning the Quest 2 to watch a movie or hang out with friends is better without having to deal with a controller. Facebook has discontinued the Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest, leaving us with OculusQuest 2 as the only headset with hand-tracking in its lineup.

DISPLAY AND PERFORMANCE

For its display and lenses, the Quest 2 features a 90Hz fast LCD that delivers 1832×1920 resolution for your eyes and has a brand new lens design. More specifically, it uses a single LCD panel that delivers a resolution of nearly 4K, and it offers 1832 × 1920 pixels per eye. OLEs, but it can also use it with a much higher resolution than the Oculus Rift S. It also utilizes an RGB-stripe display, which puts a tall green, red, and blue subpixel. Oculus Quest 2 has 6GB memory and storage of 64GB or 256GB with the Qualcomm SnapdragonX2 processor. Also, it has built-in speakers and supports for headphones and even 3D audios.

It support for Wi-Fi 6, which helps in faster downloads, more consistent connection, and even better wireless streaming. The battery life of the Oculus Quest 2 is roughly 30 minutes shorter than the original Quest. That get in around 2-3 hours of gameplay before you charge it again. Quest 2 has a great accessory, like the Elite Strap with the built-in battery or plugging the regular USB Type-C power bank into it while playing. Quest 2 also has the better strap than the original Quest because of its grip on the back of your cranium. It does not support Bluetooth headphones because it results in some human sensory issues.

OCULUS TOUCH CONTROLLER

The Oculus Touch controllers are the best controllers in the VR industry. Furthermore, the third generation Oculus touch controllers ship with the Oculus Quest 2 has the better design. The absolute part of the controller is, it has the battery door.

This helps to prevent the battery to fall off during play. Its battery is easy to use and is an AA rechargeable battery. The price of the Oculus Quest 2 VR starts at $299 (nearly Rs 22,000), which is $100 (around Rs 7400) less than the first-generation model. The base variant with 64GB starts with $299 and 256GB start with $399 (Rs 29,000)
