All-new powerful PC VR with 88% higher resolution. Simplified setup with inside-out tracking. Customization via forward-thinking mods.

Who knew HTC were still making VR headsets? Apparently the still tightly linked Valve partner has maintained their relationship after the release of the Valve Index and has a new model to add to their Vive range.

The Vive Cosmos adds six inside-out tracking cameras meaning you no longer need external sensors, which brings it inline with Oculus and ahead of the “industry leader” Index.

The Cosmos’ resolution builds on its predecessor by 88% with a combined coverage of 2880 x 1700 with a 110 degree FoV and a 90Hz refresh rate. It also comes with new controls that mimmic Oculus’ making it much more attractive competitor at that high-end consumer range.

One big advantage of the Cosmos maintains is the ability to use the Vive Wireless adaptor, effectively making the unit cordless whilst running off your PC.

Available to pre-order now the Vive Cosmos is A$1,299 and scheduled to ship this coming October.
