It already was delivering the low res head tracking and they have HD screens already, it was already amazing before so I cant even imagine the finished version. 100% immersion this thing is the BALLZ

This is one hardware application where 4K will truly make a difference.

And where pray tell do you find a GPU that runs any modern game at 100+ fps with dual views (needed for 2 eyes) on 4k resolution? Because that's what you need for the rift.

I dunno about you, but if anything the Rift will severely benefit from GPU evolution first and foremost. Currently there doesn't even exist hardware that could run a modern game at 2k resolution above 100fps with 2 views. Ie, actually you need to render 200fps.... If you display 2 viewpoints, the render cost is not negligible

And yes, I know the rift uses 1 screen = ie you render 2 views side-by-side in 1 window, but this does not change anything, the render cost is 2x as all the modern GPU shaders are camera position dependent. 2 camera positions = twice the render cost.
