Includes 5K resolution and 120Hz refresh.

HTC has unveiled the latest addition to its PC VR headset line-up in the form of the Vive Pro 2, which arrives on 4th June with pre-orders open now.

As its name implies, HTC’s Vive Pro 2 is the direct successor to the high-end PC VR headset it released in 2018. It’ll up the ante with a 5K resolution display (2448×2448 pixels per eye), a 120-degree field of view, and a 120Hz panel. By way of contrast, the original Vive Pro featured a 2880×1600 resolution, a 110-degree field of view, and a 90Hz refresh rate.

HTC claims the Vive Pro 2’s technological upgrades mean “minimal motion blur”, while screen door effect is said to be “virtually eliminated”.

The headset – which features adjustable inter-pupillary distance (IPD), head strap, and sizing dial – supports the visually lossless Display Stream Compression standard, and includes a pair of Hi-Res Audio Certified headphones that deliver 3D spatial sound, although HTC notes third-party headphones are also supported.

And if you’re wondering how the Vive Pro 2 might slot into your current VR set-up, it’s compatible with Vive Trackers of any generation, the new Vive Facial Tracker, and will work with existing SteamVR accessories – “whether it’s Base Station 1.0 or Base Station 2.0, older Vive controllers, or even controllers and gloves like Valve’s Index ‘knuckle’ controllers”.

A headset-only version of the Vive Pro 2 will launch on 4th June and is available to pre-order now – it’s priced at £719/€799/$799 USD, but HTC is offering a £60 discount for those that sign up to its newsletter before 31st May. The full-kit version – which also includes the Base Station 2.0 and Vive controllers – launches on 4th August for £1299/€1399/$1399.

DeSantis is clobbering Trump when it comes to Wall Street donations. Cue Trump’s toddler tirade

What does that mean? We can only speculate, but it sure appears that DeSantis is prepared to challenge Trump for the 2024 nomination, and Wall Street is backing him, big-league. Bloomberg: When it comes to the likely Republican presidential candidates in 2024, Wall Street’s money is on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis—not former President Donald Trump, who’s been teasing another run at the White House. A fifth of the $55 million […]
