Razer has updated the HDK VR headset and will be soon be shipped as HDK2, efaturing specs that match those of the Oculus Rift, but retailing for only $400.
The new hardware will come with an upadted 2160x1200
dual-display technology (1080 X 1200 per eye) running @90fps, putting it on par with the offerings from the industry's two big players.
Razer says the HDKs have an "Image Quality Enhancer"
(IQE) technology for reduced screendoor effect.
The HDK also has diopter adjustments ranging from -2 to +4.5 for users that need corrections for their vision, something both the Vive and the Rift lack.
Powered by the OSVR ecosystem - an open source ecosystem supporting multiple types of hardware brands - you will be able to choose from a range of controller options.
The HDK 2 is compatible with SteamVR games that can be played with a traditional controller, as well as titles written with OSVR's own SDK.
The headset will have a $400 price tag when it launches in July.
