    Oh that sounds great -> wich pcie expansion box do you use? The Alienware box with the special connection is running out yet

    Yes, I purchased this one from Amazon:
    StarTech.com Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Expansion Chassis w/DisplayPort PCIe x16 External PCIe Slot

    That sounds great, can you give us more info about the computer set up/ specs? I consider an Alienware X17 laptop with this solution.

    Yes, I'm using a Ryzen 7 5800x, 32GB Ram, RTX 3090. Given the specs of that laptop, you'll be able to run it well while tethered. Wireless should be stable, but that's a tough call. Based on my experience, I have an Alienware r17 (I believe) and that has only a 1070 in it, the x17 should work well. My r17 is able to run my Vive Cosmos pretty well. I just had to connect a pcie expansion box to install the wireless card.

    Keep us posted!

    Greetings once again.


    I've had some time with the Vive Pro 2 and have a few findings to share.


    1. When wired, the resolution is fantastic. I'm running an RTX 3090 and it is certainly taxing even that card. Materials are sharper, cleaner and appear to have higher resolution. I can zoom into a plant and it just looks better and better, the closer I get. It's quite incredible.


    2. That being said, we use ours in a wireless setting (which is much preferred to a cable for us). Currently, the wireless setup runs the same resolution as the Vive Pro, so it's not getting the same resolution as with a cable. HOWEVER, the screen is so much better due to its higher resolution! The screen door effect is so small now that I have to really try and find it. The moment I switched back over to the Pro, the SDE was very pronounced compared to the Pro 2. Thankfully, there will be an update soon which will allow a higher resolution through the same wireless adapter. There's word that a higher bandwidth wireless adapter is on the horizon and I am certainly excited about that. High resolution with wireless is a dream!


    3. The Field of View is much better as well. Same in either cable or wireless. To me, the most important thing about having VR is the immersion. This wider FOV takes VR to the next level of immersion. When combined with wireless, it's pretty amazing.


    4. Compared to the Quest 2, the Pro 2 is still a lower resolution on wireless (for now), but the lower bandwidth on the quest 2 hurts it quite a bit. The other thing is tracking on the quest 2 just isn't as good. I get a lot more stutter/jutter, than I do with either Pro or Pro 2.


    Wide FOV, high resolution and wireless... I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed!


    If you're cabled and plan to remain that way, it's a very good upgrade. Albeit not a game changer, but a very good upgrade. If you're in the wireless space, it's pretty good. The removal of the SDE alone is almost enough to justify it. But I'd advise either waiting until the new wireless adapter arrives or going in with the understanding that you'll not have the high resolution in the immediate future.


    After I have some more time to work with it, I'll give an update. Most likely next week sometime.

    Greetings,


    I am a big fan of the VR abilities in Enscape. I've tried several headsets and keep coming back to my Vive Pro with wireless adapter. I've read that the Vive Pro 2 is hitting the US market tomorrow, June 3. I will be picking this up and I am looking forward to the new higher resolution. It runs at 6MP (2448x2448 per eye) where the Vive Pro is at 3.5MP (1400x1600 per eye). Yes, that's nearly double the pixels. If there's one thing that bothers me about VR, it's the screen door effect and the "almost" good resolution.


    Has anyone used this model yet? Perhaps in a trial setting?


    I will post my thoughts once I've had a chance to test it out!

    Did you already check out the G2, pimax or Quest 2? We're looking to upgrade and I'm a bit hesitant as I'm getting somewhat mixed reports from the G2 (which I originally chose to be purchased). Do have any experience with either one of the three?

    Hey Matthias,


    I finally took some time to get the Quest 2 and get it up and running. I've found there are two ways to use it. One is the traditional method of using Virtual Desktop and the other is a new "experimental" feature on the software. It's called "Air Link." Both will work via your WiFi, so it's important to have a strong and fast WiFi connection. It seems to me that the Virtual Desktop route works smoother overall, where the Air Link is a bit more laggy and stutters. Given the choice, I'm staying with the Vive Pro. Better headset overall, doesn't stutter and the tracking is better. There's a lot less screen door effect in the Quest 2, but the performance and comfort of the Vive Pro outweigh that out very easily.

    I haven't had a chance to yet. I don't know if I can chalk it up to our marketing or our VR setup, but we have been so busy over the last few months that I haven't had a chance to test anything else yet.


    My understanding is the G2 would be a great choice of these three for seated or small room-scale. if you want wireless, the Quest 2 would be best of those three.


    At the end of the day, I don't think most customers would even see a difference between one or the other, even if you had two side by side for them to compare. I think a stable and setup is most important. I've found that any skips, stutters or blackouts in the headset are the quickest way to get sick and end a presentation abruptly. As long as you have smooth tracking and a stable image, it almost doesn't matter which headset you go with

    Hello


    So I am needing to upgrade my GPU but there are far too many options out at the moment. Some help would be appreciated. I'm looking at upgrading my CPU to the new Ryzen 7 5800x. My budget allows from a Radeon 6800 or RTX 3070. I have watched tons of videos on their performance but it really hasn't helped me choose. Some help on the new cards would be great. Thanks

    I have the 5800x and a 3090. Depending on your current CPU, you might be better off keeping that CPU and using that money on a 3080 or 3090. That will be a bigger increase in performance as rendering is very GPU intensive. One big advantage of the 3090 is that it has 24GB ram. Makes a huge difference. The difference while rendering with 3090 compared to my previous 2080ti is almost laughable. I had a Ryzen 3700x and it actually ran just as well as the 5800x does. The GPU was the major winner.

    Hi Zoom,

    I haven't tried that one yet. Do you have any experience with it? I'm planning to check out the reverb g2, the pimax and the quest 2 as well. I've been going through them one at a time to see how I like them.

    I'm not sure if you've selected a headset. In case you haven't, I wanted to throw my two cents in. We have used the vive, vive pro, vive cosmos, oculus quest and valve index. After some major hassles with the cord (physical limitations, trip hazard, etc), we decided to try the vive wireless. This was no simple feat, yet it has proved well worth the hassle. Between cpu and gpu upgrades, locating the lighthouses properly, getting stable wireless, making enough space in our office, my VR hour counter showed just over 200hrs. I know this sounds like an absurd amount of time to setup.. Full disclosure, a lot of that time was spent just testing the setup along with exploring the VR world. Being able to walk around without a leash is worth more than 10 times the money and hassle.


    At the current time, we've managed to setup a 750 sqft space where our customers are able to walk around wirelessly, without stutters jitters, blue or black screens. In other words, incredible immersion, which leads to easy sales. We are a high end landscape company and since we setup the wireless VR, we are 15 for 16 in closing our clients. The biggest positive on this front, most of our customers have agreed to the project as designed at more than double their stated budget. We don't even have to ask, it is simple. Our customers love the VR so much, they ask us when we can start.


    I know this seems like I veered off course, maybe I did. But we have been so happy with our results, I just had to share our experience. I Hope Enscape will continue to improve this awesome software.


    Our current setup is a Ryzen 5800x, 32GB ram, rtx 3090 and vive pro wireless.


    I hope this helps!!


    P.s. one of the unintended consequences.. we had to face our own designs and come to terms with our own flaws. Thankfully, we review thoroughly before presentation!

    I understand this thread may be 'dead.' I'm a new user to Enscape and the reason we went with Enscape is the VR capability. I read that this concept of SLI wouldn't be of use to pursue, but I'd like to throw in my 2 cents.


    My current setup is using a rzen 2700x with 32GB ram and a 2080ti. Also included, Vive Pro with wireless. After hours and hours of testing, tweaking and tuning, I have achieved results that I (being quite a computer nerd) would call permissable. The two largest keys were having a lucky purchase of a very happy to be overclocked video card and upgrading my motherboard supporting pcie 4.0.


    10-30% improvement with SLI may sound like small potatoes, but when overclocking that yields a 5% gain brings a 2080ti from choppy to permissable... How much better would 10, 20, 30% be? I presume it would a lot. A hell of a lot.


    The idea that we can get ever closer to real life is what drives us in the presentation side of things. Higher and higher resolution headsets are not far off and the better your sofware is, the closer to being the best in the business we are.
