The refresh rate of the Oculus Quest 2 was only increased from 72 to 90 Hertz by patch in November – at least if you choose it in the menu and the software supports it. In an Instagram Q&A (via Roadtovr.com), Andrew “Boz” Bosworth (Vice President of Facebook Reality Labs) hinted at the weekend that this may not be the end of the story.
When a user asked whether the stand-alone VR system could also get an update to 120 Hertz, Bosworth answered with “thumbs up”.
This shouldn’t be a problem for the built-in display. But even the modern XR2 chip of the Quest 2 would then have to provide quite a bit of power to handle the high frame rates (alternatively, reprojection from 60 to 120 frames would probably also be possible – i.e. with interframe calculations, as is already common with PSVR).
Even on modern game PCs, it is well known that some owners of the Valve Index do not use the maximum refresh rate (144 Hertz there) in order to optimize performance. On the other hand, such a Quest 2 update would make Facebook’s headset more interesting for PC gamers who want to operate it on their computer via a link cable.
