Valve Index is the company's entrance into the VR HMD market

Valve Index is the company's entrance into the VR HMD market

But the Valve Index appears to have a two lens on both sides of the headset and we are not sure how that will actually work.

The Valve Index has been rumored for a while, but we only got confirmation that Valve will be shipping its own VR headset last week.

Valve is finally getting into virtual reality hardware, as the company teases a new VR HMD called Valve Index. For example, Valve partnered with Taiwanese electronics company HTC to develop the HTC Vive headsets. Based on the photo and the name of the Steam page, the headset seems to be named The Valve Index.

Valve might release a virtual reality headset before it even announces Half-Life 3. It may also come bundled with Valve's Knuckles VR controllers, the latest iteration of which (Knuckles EV3) was revealed back in September 2018.

That's about all we now know on the device, but it's still enough to raise our interest in the upcoming reveal.

To reinvigorate public interest in VR technology again is Valve as they've hinted at their very own VR headset. Upload VR reports that sources have told it that the Index would have a wider field of view and resolution around the same as the HTC Vive Pro, which rocks 1440x1600 per eye. You'll need at least a dual-core CPU with hyper-threading, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 970 or RX 480 video card-Valve recommends a quad-core CPU and a GTX 1070 video card or better.

The new Index's teaser also reveals the launch date i.e. From its analysis of the picture it says that the graduated slider on the rear left of the unit is an IPD (interpupillary distance) adjustment slider.
