META QUEST 3 NEW FEATURES

It was revealed that Xbox Cloud Gaming would be coming to the Meta Quest 3 later this year, but here’s what to expect from the hardware.

The actual unit will be 40% slimmer than the Meta Quest 2 which should make for a much more comfortable headset. The controllers look extremely different, dropping the outer rings and also adding the TruTouch haptics that were found in the Touch pro controllers this year.

The most exciting advancement is the fact that the Meta Quest 3 has dual 4MP RGB colour cameras, meaning that it’ll provide mixed reality experiences. Meta says that it has 10x more pixels in passthrough compared to that of the Meta Quest 2.

As far as performance goes, the headset will combine the highest resolution yet as well as pancake optics to make the visuals look better than ever. It will also be the first headset to feature a Snapdragon chipset that has twice the graphical performance of the Snapdragon GPU found in the Quest 2.

The Quest 3 will be fully backwards compatible with the Quest 2 catalogue of over 500 VR games.
