The Oculus Quest 2 has just gotten a huge performance boost with an automatic update from Meta. This update was applied to all headsets, and increased the maximum GPU clock frequency from 490 MHz to 525 MHz – resulting in a 7% higher performance than previously available. As a result of this extra power, updates can be released that would slightly increase rendering resolution, similar to how Red Matter 2’s developer used the same GPU but set its max clock speed to 587 Mhz for improved visuals.
In addition, V47 was released earlier this month and V49 is expected down the line which should address an odd requirement that you remove and place back on your headset every time you launch an app in order for it to access the new maximum frequency if 525MHz. What’s more, Meta hasn’t disclosed exactly what allowed them to make such improvements with this update – foreshadowing toward greater opportunies with their upcoming Quest 3 model slated for release later next year offeirng at least double the current GPU performance!
