Vive Pro 2 with multiple modes of operation. Designed for weaker PCs
VR content is very demanding on hardware, so owners of virtual reality glasses should have a sufficiently powerful PC. However, the Vive Pro 2 developers also thought about people whose computers are not strong enough to take full advantage of this equipment. A useful feature has been added to select the goggle modes.
The performance of the Vive Pro 2 goggles is impressive in every way. However, high resolution and smooth operation require a lot of processing power, so HTC decided to provide users with the modes in which the device should operate. Therefore, there is no need to use the maximum resolution of 4896 x 2448 pixels and it can be reduced to half if that is what we want.
The Vive Pro 2 provides a total of 6 modes of operation. First on the list is the Performance option, where the displayed image has a resolution of 2248 x 1124 pixels and the refresh is 120Hz. The Balanced option ups the resolution to 3264 x 1632 pixels down to 90 Hz. Next on the list is the High (3672 x 1836 pixels 90 Hz) and Ultra (4896 x 2448 pixels and 90 Hz) options, and at the very end the Extreme (4896 x 2448, 120 Hz) options. The latter is not available if we are going to use a wireless connection for glasses.
The choice of the operating mode is a very smart decision, as it allows you to enjoy the capabilities of the equipment for a larger group of users. Not everyone has a powerful PC that can handle the demands of full-resolution games and other content.
