Less GPU power for 5K? Is this a hoax?
Because BOTH glasses have the same input resolution of 2560x1440.
Or not? So both need the same processing power of the graphics card.
And without refund the difference, I think No...
M2 is really the last hardware version?
And we could get it earlier, before the software is perfect?
Why should I hesitate, if this offer is real?
I do not risk anything (changes to the hardware, lenses, etc.), but can already use the glasses?
And I can decide if I want to keep the "old" Vive for some time (until the Pimax software is perfected), or sell it.
And in theory, in the future they could offer a replacement video board to upgrade the 8K to real UHD ("4K") resolution...
With the 5K, this is impossible.
@ Axacuatl, with one cable, "8KX" is only a early experimental version, higher dp version makes one cable possible, and "Foveated Rendering" could reduce the GPU power down to 20%.
Every Backer will get the Eyte tracker, they could make "Foveated Rendering" soon possible.
Then we need not a new big expensive GPU.
OK, perhaps only the 1000 generation will works, not the "old" 900, but I could buy a cheaper low or mid range GTX 1000 series. Actually I use a 980Ti.
I think it would sufficient with FR for the "8K", but it seems, the 900 series will not work.
