Valve has announced a new high-end VR headset aimed at users who want the best the technology has to offer. Valve Index Preorders for the headset, controllers and base stations are available now.
The headset features 1,440x1,600 LCDs and has 50% more subpixels than OLED, in an array that reduces the screen-door effect that typically accompanies VR. The headset runs at 120Hz, with full backward compatibility with 90Hz. It's also designed with easily replaceable face pads, and Valve says it's encouraging mods and third-party designs for those pads.
The headset is available individually for $499, with the controllers priced at $279 and the base station at $149. A bundle is priced at $999. For more specs and details, visit Valve's page here.
