VirtualLink standard could pipe VR pixels through one USB-C cable

VR Headsets Single Cable

The new connection has been labelled as an Alternate Mode of USB-C, and it allows for VR setup to be simplified and sped up, making the process easier for consumers, removing one of the barriers towards mass adoption for VR.

VirtualLink is able to simultaneously deliver four high-speed lanes of HBR3 DisplayPort, a USB3.1 data channel, and up to 27 watts of power. It'll also bring immersive VR to smaller devices such as thin and light notebooks, devices that aren't necessarily readily compatible with high-end VR headsets because they lack the necessary number of ports.

One of the nicer things about VirtualLink is that it has been objective built for VR with optimizing latency and keying in on bandwidth demands to make the next generation of VR experiences a much better one. "With the adoption of VirtualLink technology, purpose-built for VR, we look forward to helping push the industry forward into the next phase of VR". "With a single, high-bandwidth cable, VirtualLink unlocks the full potential of the PC to power fantastic VR experiences".

"While serious VR and AR experiences will still require more advanced processors and graphics chips, casual PC users won't need to get HP's Omen X backpack, for example, to get started with VR", DT continues.

"We have been involved on VirtualLink from the beginning and are supportive of industry-standard approaches for emerging Windows experiences including mixed reality", said Scott Evans, general manager, Mixed Reality, Microsoft.

Future VR headsets won't require the range of cords and connectors in use by today's flagship devices. If the new standard catches on, folks looking to jack in will need only to run a single USB Type-C cable from their future head-mounted device back to the PC.

The new spec will ensure consistent and convenient connections for future VR headsets.
