Upgrading my RIFT S headset


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am thinking of upgrading my RIFT S to a HP REVERB G2. I am wondering if it’s worth the money and what the performance is like? Also I am open to advice from other head sets too. 
 

Thanks

Yes imho it is well worth it. Have been enjoying mine practically daily now for the last few months.

I will tell you I ended up running the thing at 100% Steam VR Resolution which in my case is 3172x3100 per eye.

I run it with Motion Smoothing on forced at 45 fps. DCS graphics very high and it is gorgeous to me.

I do have a pretty beefy rig with a 3090 though.

 

The controllers are pretty decent also - maybe a small step below the Oculus controllers, but I played a couple of VR games with it and they did fine.

Thanks DBurne. I have a decent rig too with 2080TI. I wasn’t that impressed with the smoothness of the RIFT S, I found my FPS was always pretty low!

with your 9700K, are you overclocking at all?  You can safely get away with a 4.9ghz with that CPU.  The CPU bump alone will help your FPS too.  (see my sig for my specs)
