Upgrading from OG Vive to Vive Pro 2


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, as the titles says, I'm about to upgrade from an original HTC Vive to a Vive Pro 2.

Already bought some face covers for it (6-10-12mm).

Anything I should know to get the first new gen experience right? I'll use base stations 1.0 and original controllers even tho I'll buy knuckles as soon as they come back in stock.

Thanks in advance

  • You'll need a much more powerful GPU. Vive Pro 2 does not support SteamVR motion smoothing and uses a different interpolation methodology, and so raw GPU power is more important with the increased resolution/framerate.
  • You'll need to use a piece of software called Vive Console to drive Pro 2. You can download it directly from Steam if that's your preference: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1635730/VIVE_Console_for_SteamVR/
  • Be sure to adjust the distance between the lenses and your eyes - the setting it ships with may not be ideal for you.
