According to today's Oculus Blog post, v28 will include Oculus Air Link,
which allows Quest 2 users to stream PCVR games over WiFi. It sounds
like it will only be for Quest 2 headsets initially--it's unclear
whether this feature will eventually relea...
According to Andrew Bosworth in a recent interview, Quest 2 in a few

rates, and I can definitely see the difference in image quality as I
raise the bitrate. I settled on either 250 or ...
The main limitation (for both Link and Virtual Desktop) is the speed at
which the GPU can encode the signal, and the speed at which the Quest's
