I tend to forget that cybersickness/motion-sickness is one of the leading causes of limited/slow VR adoption. So many people across the world get sick from VR. Obviously, anyone reading this post is probably not afflicted by VR sickness. In my case, it did impact me early on (back in 2016), but I worked through it daily until my symptoms were gone.
But the last thing a non-enthusiast wants to do is invest in a new tech that has a strong "vomit-inducing" potential. Thankfully, NVIDIA is here to step things up a notch:
Unnamed sources claim that Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce GTX 1180 add-in graphics card for desktops will likely include a proprietary connector for virtual reality headsets to support 120Hz refresh rates over a single cable. This port will likely be based on the current HDMI 2.1 specification given it’s widely accepted across manufacturers. Current desktop-based headsets support refresh rates of 90Hz, the vomit-prevention standard in virtual reality where the visuals are rendered at 90 frames per second to prevent motion sickness. This is why you need a somewhat-beefy graphics card to handle the experience.
There's been plenty of talk about VR Standards over the past 2 years. Personally, I'm happy that the "vomit prevention standard" is the first official one! lol
