Virtual Desktop developer Guy Godin says he's enabled wireless PC VR streaming at 90 Hz for the Oculus Quest 2. UploadVR's Ian Hamilton says Godin's software, which provides desktop computer access in headsets, reported streaming his PC to his Quest at 90 Hz in regular desktop PC mode as well as PC VR game streaming. Higher frame rates equal smoother and more realistic gaming.
- The original Quest runs at up to 72 Hz and the Rift S at 80 Hz. While the goal was to have Quest 2 run at 90Hz at launch, the default function is delayed until later this year, allowing developers and Oculus Link to automatically run games at 90 Hz.
- At launch, Quest 2 owners will be able to use Home, the Browser, and more at 90 Hz via Experimental Features.
- Hamilton notes that Facebook is developing its own wireless “Air Link” to run PC VR content.
- On his Twitter page, Godin says he's "hard at work" on a mobile version of Virtual Desktop for Oculus Go/GearVR/Quest.
- Godin, who has had his share of run-ins with Facebook, doesn't have an Oculus Quest 2 yet. The headset ships on Oct. 13.
