Oculus Adds 90Hz Gaming Support in First Quest 2 Major Update



The mobile app will be able to record the headset screen at the end of November.

Oculus has released its first big update for the Quest 2 standalone virtual reality headset, fulfilling several promises it made when it launched the headset last month. Among the new features, it is worth noting a mode with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which is now distributed by default to all system-level applications, including through Oculus Link, the beta version of which is officially out.

The company says developers can now release Quest games with native support for 90Hz, as opposed to the Quest 2’s base 72Hz refresh rate, which was active by default. Games like Superhot, Echo VR, Beat Saber, Vacation Simulator, Job Simulator, Racket: Nx and Space Pirate Trainer will soon support higher refresh rates. Perhaps Tetris Effect and Rez Infinite will join this list.

When you connect the Quest 2 to your computer using the Oculus Link cable (or other compatible USB 3.0 cable), you can switch between 72Hz, 80Hz, or 90Hz through the Oculus PC app. Oculus says it has improved the overall visual quality when using the Link feature, and the automatic graphics profile settings have been tweaked to increase the load on the GPU for better performance. A new interface for adjusting graphics settings and rendering resolution is available in the app.

Next week, Oculus is releasing the Oculus Move app, which allows you to track fitness metrics collected while playing VR games. With it, you can see the calories burned and physical activity in games.

There are two more additions: later in November, Oculus will allow capturing the headset’s screen via an iOS or Android app so that the user can create their own clips. Previously, you had to either post your recorded clips directly to Facebook, or manually connect the Quest 2 to your computer and drag and drop files.

Finally, Oculus makes it possible to gift games and experiences through the Oculus store, in a browser, or from an app. The user just needs a friend’s email address.
