The brand new Oculus Rift S is being shown off at GDC and Ars Technica had a chance to play with it. See their launch video below.
Unlike the company's previous product launches, which have concentrated on pro-grade and self-contained mobile hardware, the OculusRift S is a true replacement for the Oculus Rift - which is to be retired once the Rift S has launched in the spring.
The Rift S also has some comfort improvements too, with the mounting mechanism changing from Velcro head-straps to a PSVR-esque solution. However, the Rift S does borrow from the upcoming Oculus Quest in other areas.
The overall package for the Rift S is strong enough that it would be interesting to know why Brendan Iribe left Facebook last fall. The company does not disclose resolution of the new HMD officially, but there are claims that the device uses a 5.5-inch display panel with a 2560×1440 (538 ppi, 1280×1440 per eye) resolution and an 80 Hz refresh rate, which is also found inside the Oculus Go.
The Rift S offers PC gamers a higher resolution gaming experience thanks to improved optics and display technology. You can sign up to receive the latest updates at Oculus' website.
The Oculus Rift S uses "Oculus Insight" tracking to catch every movement you make without the need for external sensors.
The on-ear headphones have been taken away in favor speakers that are integrated into the headband itself (there is a headphone jack if you want to use your own headphones). And while the Rift S is slightly heavier than the original Rift, the new Lenovo design is reportedly easier to wear for longer periods. Even though PC specification requirements are largely the same as with the original Rift, you might need a faster CPU.
But the Rift S's biggest upgrade is the inclusion of five cameras built into the headset: Two in front, one on either side, and one up top.
