VR content is very demanding to hardware, so owners of virtual reality glasses should have a sufficiently powerful PC. However, the developers of Vive Pro 2 have also thought about people whose computers are not strong enough to take advantage of all the features of this equipment. For them, we have added a useful function to select the modes of the glasses.
The features of the Vive Pro 2 glasses are impressive in every way. However, high resolution and smooth operation require a lot of processing power, so HTC has decided to give users the modes in which the device should work. Therefore, there is no need to use the maximum resolution of 4896 x 2448 pixels, it can be reduced to half, if that is what we need.
Vive Pro 2 provides a total of 6 operating modes. First on the list is the Performance option, where the displayed image has a resolution of 2248 x 1124 pixels and the refresh is 120 Hz. The Balanced option increases the resolution to 3264 x 1632 pixels, reducing the refresh rate to 90 Hz. Next on the list are High (3672 x 1836 pixels at 90 Hz) and Ultra (4896 x 2448 pixels and 90 Hz), and at the very end is Extreme (4896 x 2448 at 120 Hz). The latter is not available if we are going to use a wireless connection for glasses.
Choosing the operating mode is a very sensible decision as it allows you to enjoy the capabilities of the hardware for a larger group of users. Not everyone, after all, has a powerful PC that will pull up the requirements for games and other content in full resolution.
