Since Meta has essentially abandoned the Oculus name, the Oculus Quest 3 is now known as the Meta Quest 3. However, the lack of new reports or leaks has us questioning that notion. Since there isn’t much competition for the Oculus Quest 2, formerly known as the Meta Quest 2, which is still the best VR headset you can buy right now, it’s unlikely that Meta would introduce a new headset straight away.
Outlook for Meta Quest 3
The Meta Quest 3 can be readily upgraded and have a winner because the Meta Quest 2 was a success. Advancements on the hardware and software fronts would be preferable. The field of virtual reality is still in its infancy and has a specialized audience. Virtual reality might become more widely accepted if Meta provides a full VR system that can give immersive experiences. This should provide us access to more games and programs to satisfy the ravenous appetites of our hands and eyes.
Meta Quest 3 2023 Specifications & Rumors
The default refresh rate for the Meta Quest 3’s display is 120 hertz. The Quest 2 is now capable of 120Hz refresh rates, although programs must upscale material to meet that goal. When utilizing a VR headset, folks who are prone to motion sickness would especially appreciate it if the headset had a quick refresh rate out of the box. Brad Lynch, a VR researcher, claims that the Quest 3 will use OLED panels while the Cambria would use mini-LED technology (opens in new tab).
The Quest 3 is expected to have a resolution of 4,128 by 2,208 pixels, or 2,064 by 2,208 pixels for each eye. Over the 1,920 by 1,832 pixels per eye of the Meta Quest 2, this resolution represents a 30% improvement. Additionally, we might anticipate an improved chipset, perhaps from Qualcomm. It’s possible that the silicon in this Qualcomm processor is special.
Meta Quest 3 is developing a future for PC VR.
Although there isn’t much information available regarding Meta Quest 3, Mark Zuckerberg gave a clue that it might have face and eye tracking. There is also a good chance that there will be a new processor, probably the Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2. For Cardiff, a top-notch tiny OLED display would be more likely. Lynch claims to be aware of speculations regarding the features of the Meta Quest 3, but he first needs them to be verified by further sources.
Lynch is optimistic about Meta’s planned PC VR projects, though. The Avalanche VR cloud gaming service is currently being developed by Meta, and the company also plans to support PC VR streaming from nearby machines by using a specialized USB dongle. In the most recent Quest firmware, there are already signs of interface components that inform users of the “Air Bridge” connection’s condition. Lynch anticipates that the accessory will be revealed soon. In comparison to Meta Quest 2, Cambria will receive better PC VR support, according to a prior report from the YouTuber.
