AMD Has its own VR HMD, Features 4K Res Per Eye
First major virtual reality head mounted devices (HMDs) have already dropped in the market in recent weeks, but there is still room for improvements. These virtual reality headsets are the first editions of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive and will not be the last, because there is a lot to be improved upon.
However, AMD is way ahead of Oculus and HTC in regard of virtual reality tech. While we are still anticipating more advanced virtual reality headsets to arrive, AMD has revealed that it has its own VR device which is way more advance-specced than Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
During the Virtual Reality World Congress (VRWC) in Bristol, UK, AMD’s Roy Taylor revealed that the company has its own virtual reality device in their labs. According to Roy, the device supports 4K resolution per eye, and has a refresh rate of 122 Hz, easily surpassing Oculus and HTC.
However, the device is not expected to see a consumer release date because it’s for internal testing only – at least for now.
Impressive specs aren`t they? Well, not according to Roy Taylor because according to him achieving 144 frames per second and 16K resolution per eye was the real goal for the device. This is however something we won`t see for a long time.
