VirtualLink and Nvidia GPUs Can Make Watching VR Porn More Comfortable!

Nvidia has just announced the Quadro RTX 8000, RTX 6000 and RTX 5000 graphic cards during the SIGGRAPH 2018 trade fair – the first models from their entirely new Turing generation. This pretty much means that the company is finally introducing the  first chips that support the VirtualLink technology – a new communication standard designed for next-generation of VR goggles – as well as raytracing technology that allows for more realistic rendering of lighting and shadow in real time. What’s the VirtualLink standard? And what does that mean for VR porn videos? Let’s find out together!

What is “VirtualLink”?

The consortium, which included companies NVIDIA, AMD, Valve, Oculus and Microsoft, has developed a new, open standard of connectivity called VirtualLink. It was created “to meet the requirements for connectivity in the present and new generation of virtual reality”, which sounds really encouragingly when you’ll think about watching some VR porn films with comfort, don’t you think?

VirtualLink is an alternative USB-C mode that can simultaneously handle up to four fast DisplayPort HBR3 lines. The solution will provide a USB 3.1 data exchange channel for cameras and sensors as well as the energy needed to power goggles (up to 27 W of power). As we read on the official website of the new standard, “VirtualLink replaces many cables with a single, lightweight cable. It simplifies the configuration process and significantly shortens the VR headset configuration.”

What does Nvidia have to do with this?

Even though Nvidia is just one of many companies developing the aforementioned standard, they are one of the first ones from the consortium bringing it to live. “Turing is the most important Nvidia innovation in computer graphics for over a decade,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, speaking at SIGGRAPH 2018. “Hybrid rendering will change the industry by opening amazing opportunities that will improve our lives with more beautiful models and richer, more entertaining and more interactive experiences. The emergence of real-time raytracing is the Holy Grail of our industry.”

And what does that mean for VR porn?

Even though all VR porn movies’ fans are all waiting for standalone VR headsets being (finally) widely available, it looks like it is going to take some time for them to come. Until that moment, while looking for some comfort when watching VR porn films, we, VR Bangers, as a producers, are obliged to seek for some other solutions – just like the aforementioned VirtualLink. We do hope that the consortium’s work will give us all a much more convenient experiences, making our 6K UHD VR porn videos even more flawless and enjoyable. After all, quality does not matter if you can’t enjoy it in comfort, don’t you think?

Nvidia Quadro RTX cards will be available for purchase in the fourth quarter of this year. The Quadro RTX 5000 has been priced at $ 2,300, the Quadro RTX 6000 is $ 6,300, while the fastest Quadro RTX 8000 costs $ 10,000.
