The aptly titled Vive Wireless Adaptor uses Intel WiGig technology and runs on the 60 Ghz band, which HTC describes as "interference-free" and will, as a result, provide "lower latency and better performance". "Vive Pro offers an immediate upgrade for both VR enthusiasts and enterprises that want to utilize the best VR experience".
The Vive Pro will include dual OLED displays offering a resolution of 2880 x 1600, a 37% increase over the current Vive HMD. O'Brien said that the Vive Pro will be available as an upgrade version to existing Vive users this quarter, with a full commercial launch planned for later this year.
