The highlight of the new system is the improved combined 2880 by 1600 resolution from its dual-OLED displays, which the company boasts is a 78 percent increase over the original Vive. This should help with crisper text and graphics within VR experiences.

Almost two years after the launch of the HTC Vive virtual reality system, its creators have finally revealed a hardware revision for the headset: the HTC Vive Pro.

"Wireless VR has been on almost every VR user's wishlist since the technology was unveiled", said Frank Soqui, General Manager Virtual Reality Group at Intel Corporation.

GM Daniel O'Briend said, "There's a clear need in the VR market for a premium VR experience with high resolution display, integrated audio and the best components available today in a headset". The Vive Wireless Adaptor will ship in Q3 to customers worldwide.

First published January 8 at 1:06 p.m. PT. Update, 1:58 p.m. PT: Adds that existing consumers will also be able to buy the Vive Pro later this quarter. Instead, users will see "fully immersive interactive previews". There's no word on when the wireless adapter is going to be available, or how much it will cost. There's also new 3D audio which will work with the new and original Vive base stations. This means you'll be able to get a real taste of games and experiences, complete with all the room-scale and interactions, before you buy, rather than judging them by watching a 2D video. It will be a part of the now existing Viveport Subscription model. The native VR video player Vive Video is now pulling in content from one of the world's largest ad-free open video platforms. Both are available immediately.
