In addition to coming out of beta, Oculus Link is getting several significant improvements in the future, including support for 90 FPS in the “near future.” Facebook outlines the upcoming improvements to Oculus Link and shares several other major announcements in a blog post.
During the Facebook Connect stream, the company explained that in its view, the Oculus Quest 2 with Oculus Link delivers a better PCVR experience than the Oculus Rift or Oculus Rift S.
