HTC VIVE has today revealed the VIVE Pro 2.
The VIVE Pro 2 features 5K resolution display, with 2.5K to each eye, along with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and fast-switching panel with real RGB sub-pixels. The field of view has increased to 120 degrees, thanks to the VIVE Pro 2’s new bespoke dual stacked-lens design. This reduces motion blur, and the ‘screen door effect’ is virtually eliminated.

All VIVE SteamVR ecosystem accessories will work with VIVE Pro 2, and the headset will slot into an existing SteamVR setup.

The full VIVE Pro 2 kit which includes Base Station 2.0 and VIVE Controllers, will be available from the 4th of August for £1299.

VIVE Pro 2 delivers an amazing immersive experience, with beautifully fluid visuals, comfort, and precise tracking, for when every pixel and polygon counts,” said Graham Wheeler, HTC VIVE EMEA General Manager
