Oculus Quest – VR done right

As you might have noticed I really like the Oculus Quest. To me there is so much to love with this headset. Yes, it might not be the best when it comes to the specs but to me that doesn’t matter. I refuse to let perfection be the enemy of good. I can play a lot of games that look excellent in the headset and I can even now play regular SteamVR/Oculus RIft games via Virtual Desktop or Oculus Link.

The main feature that makes this VR-headset the one to beat is the fact it is un-thethered and does not need a PC: You can put it in your little bag and bring it to work, friends or whenever you want to game and you do not need a huge PC with it. And as much as would love to have even more power and even higher resolution I think the Oculus Quest has found a great balance which allows it to be a kick-ass un-tethered headset.

Pros

  • No wires
  • OLED screen with quite high resolution
  • Several ways to play regular PC-VR-games
  • Great graphics even though it has a mobile chip

Cons

  • Quite expensive now
  • A bit unbalanced. Better to add a bit weight at the back
  • Needs to be charged during longer games
  • Slightly lower refreshrate

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
