Will be interesting to see what new headsets would leverage this. The actual performance upgrade over the current version isn't massive but it's a nice resolution bump and support for two additional cameras for improved pass through or tracking.

If the Pico 5 Pro was to actually make an appearance, i'm guessing it would be sporting this chip.

in addition to Samsung and Google, Qualcom says there are currently 5 other VR companies developing headsets based on the new XR2+ Gen2. I wouldn't be surprised if Varjo and Pimax are among them. good to know there will be more than just Apple.

I hope those future XR2+ headsets have direct video ports like DP / HDMI. Based on the experience of Quest 3, I'm not going to try a streaming only headset for MSFS again.

I did find though, I enjoy a lot using Quest3 + VirtualDesktop to watch YouTube from my MSFS computer. RTX4090 ensures the highest possible setting and the image is nearly a perfect 4K quality on a virtual screen of ~150" few feet away. Fabulous and very immersive, even it's just 2D in VR. I have a high-end projector + 135" screen, but burning my precious bulb just to watch YouTube videos doesn't make sense. Quest3 does the job perfectly.

far from it. 

Quest3 pixels per eye: 2064 x 2208 = 1/2 of 4K. 9.1 mio total pixels,

Apple Vision Pro = 23 mio total pixels, 2.5 more than Quest 3.

true 4K would be twice the amount of pixels, over 16 mio pixels left + right eye combined. I wonder if a RTX 4090 could handle that at 60 fps.

"4K resolution refers to a horizontal display resolution of approximately 4,000 pixels.[1] Digital television and digital cinematography commonly use several different 4K resolutions. In television and consumer media, 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD) is the dominant 4K standard, whereas the movie projection industry uses 4096 × 2160 (DCI 4K)."

I know. I am just saying visually it almost feels like 4K. Of course once we see the real 4K VR the Quest 3 will be no match.
