The Oculus Quest 2 is a virtual reality headset manufactured by Oculus. It was released in October 2020, following an announcement in September the same year. It is the company's seventh VR headset release.
- This headset is standalone and does not require a PC to use.
- This headset has a low horizontal field of view. 89°
- This headset does not require external base stations.
- This headset can be purchased with two 6DoF controllers.
Originally codenamed Del Mar, the headset is around 20% lighter and 15% smaller than its predecessor, the Oculus Quest, with a refresh rate of 90-120 Hz, improving on the 72 Hz of the original Quest.
The system can be connected to a PC via Oculus Link, which can be performed using the official Link cable or a third party USB-C cable. This allows the headset to be used to run content from SteamVR and the desktop Oculus store. Note that a high-bandwidth USB specification (USB 3.0 at a minimum) is required to achieve a high-quality and smooth picture.
Alternatively, the system can be used to play PC VR content wirelessly via use of Virtual Desktop, which can be installed onto the headset via SideQuest, a third-party app store used to sideload content onto the system. In order to achieve a high quality wireless experience, a high-bandwidth router is required (IEEE 802.11ax / WiFi 6 is recommended).
