Not having to put something in front of your eyes to be able to see it would be an awesome leap in technology, I hope I'm around for it. VR isn't worth having a matrix plug in the back of my head but it would still be exciting.
A piece of hardware that is "no compromises" would be even more exciting though.
Yeah some of it is still pretty sci-fi but a self contained headset that offers a AAA vr experience isn't unreasonable in the foreseeable future. If the R&D is put into it. Still will suffer from not being convenient (from wearing it) but would be cool. I'd likely pull my rift out here and there if it didn't require hooking it up to a pc and the sensors.
Could still have high res panels, support DP 1.4 and still have backwards compatibility with DP 1.2 for older GPUs. Would just run at a lower refresh rate or render resolution when on DP 1.2.
Right, but if the headset only has display port 1.2 then it will always be limited to lower refresh rate and resolution. I'm not really sure what info about the headset is correct so the DP1.2 spec could easily be wrong.
