HTC Vive Pro revealed at CES 2018, higher resolution and integrated headphones

Is HTC Going To Unveil A 4K Vive VR Headset At CES 2018

Built for the VR fan that wants the best, the new model will have a 2800 x 1600 OLED display (615ppi).

The Vive Pro, meanwhile, offers a few new bells and whistles. This was also part of the HTC Vive Pro presentation which will make use of this new feature when four base stations are connected. At the time, rendering a 2160 x 1200 at 90 frames per second was a tall order for most graphics cards. While there have been third-party add-ons that turn the Vive wireless, HTC is offering an official accessory. The key to VR is immersion, and better resolution makes that possible. That's a 78-percent jump from the original Vive headset's screen resolution of 2160x1200. This includes audio, display, and hardware design.

The Vive Pro also features updated tracking sensors. HTC expects that number to increase to 3,000 by the end of the year. The trackable space is up to 10m x 10m. The new optical sensors for Steam VR Tracking 2.0 support the new base stations and the old base stations.

That's particularly the case for high-end VR systems like the Vive or rival Oculus Rift, a headset from Facebook's Oculus unit. "Not only does the integration with Vive Video showcase some of Vimeo's highest quality, human-curated content within the VR experience, but it also gives those creators an exciting new way to expose their work and engage with audiences".

AMD Launches Ryzen Pro Mobile CPUs
Over the first half of the year, the company is going to release the final missing members of the Ryzen product line-up. Ryzen 2 will use 7nm process technology, is already complete and promises to improve on Ryzen in multiple dimensions.

Audio: Dual microphones on the headset help with noise cancellation for online play, but the headset is also packing a lighter, sleeker version of HTC's Deluxe Audio Strap, so headphones are a stock option now.

While it keeps the same shape as the basic Vive, the Pro comes in a new blue shell and, more importantly, has built-in headphones, dual mics and an amplifier, promising to offer some nice 3D spatial audio. HTC did not say what thier function is.

There's no talk about pricing right now, but HTC promises there will be a head-mounted display (HMD) replacement plan for current Vive owners later this quarter.

Again, a price and release date for the Vive Pro were not shared; those details will be provided "soon".
