Oculus Quest 2 updates provides native 90Hz help, calorie tracki
(Pocket-Lint) – When the Oculus Quest 2 first hit the market, we were told that this VR headset would eventually support a 90Hz refresh rate.
Oculus has now announced that an update is available for the headset that provides native support for 90 Hz across the platform. That said, as long as the game developers back it up, you can get smoother visual experiences with this wireless headset than the original Quest.
According to Oculus, the first games to receive these updates will include SUPERHOT, Echo VR, Beat Saber, Vacation Simulator, Job Simulator, Racket: Nx, and Space Pirate Trainer. More will follow in the future.
As promised, Oculus Link is also coming out of beta with improved support. When you plug your Oculus Quest 2 headset into a VR-enabled gaming PC, you’ll appreciate “a host of visual quality improvements” including expanded refresh rate options (72 Hz, 80 Hz, and 90 Hz).
The Quest 2’s wireless freedom naturally makes it ideal for fitness games (burning calories is also easy with hectic games like FitXR, Beat Saber, and the various zombie shooters). And if you’ve used your Quest 2 to keep fit, you’ll be pleased to hear that there is now a new system-level fitness tracker that lets you keep track of how long you’ve been active and how many calories you have burned over all games and apps.
Lots of good news for Quest 2 owners.
