VR enthusiasts looking to spend more on their gear have something to be excited about. 

An Impressive Refresh Rate Bump

Pimax is one of the more popular brands specializing in virtual reality, and its 8K has been a huge hit. Now, they are getting a significant upgrade. The company announced it is working with Nvidia to bring its refresh rate up to 120Hz in Native Mode.

The upgrade speeds up the data transfer. It also takes the signal quality between GPU and the headset to the next level.

With the upgrade coming from a collaboration with Nvidia, it is safe to assume the 120Hz refresh rate will work better on computers powered by its products.

This headset has already been a ground-breaking product. It offers a resolution of 4K per eye, which translates to a total of 8K in the name.

Pimax still did not upgrade the refresh rate to 120Hz in its listings. Its headsets are on sale, meaning that the company may first want to offload old stock. Users looking to bring this refresh rate bump to their VR arsenal should check with Pimax before purchasing.

Virtual reality continues to generate more interest. Engineers are working on new and improved headsets, and giants like Netflix are stepping into the VR market
