PIMAX surprised everyone when it introduced the world’s first Ultra HD VR headset back in 2016 and set the bar higher even for established players. The world’s most advanced HMD VR headset and winner of the best of CES Asia 2016 features an incredible 3840×2160 resolution, which is significantly higher than HTC Vive (2160×1200), Oculus Rift (2160×1200) and SONY PSVR (1920×1080). The 4K VR is itself a remarkable achievement considering the fact that PIMAX was established just a few years ago. Making things even tougher for the competition, the 4K HMD was introduced at almost half the price of other VR headsets that also didn’t come close in terms of resolution and pixel density. PIMAX made it clear that future development in the VR technology would mostly come from China, a country already giving a really tough time to established market players in most domains of technology.
PIMAX 4K HMD (Helmet Mounted Display) represents the pinnacle of VR technology and a quantum leap above the competitors. The remarkable 4K resolution translates into razor-sharp visuals and makes everything, whether games or movies, so much more realistic. A pixel count of 8.29 million ensures a life-like and immersive VR experience. With the introduction of its 4K VR headset, PIMAX made it possible for the masses to afford a revolutionary technology. High prices was the number one factor that kept consumers from trying out the future of gaming, but thanks to PIMAX the bleeding-edge is now within reach of everyone.

What exactly is PIMAX 4K VR Headset?
The revolutionary 4K HMD allows consumers to enjoy their own private IMAX Theater (notice the IMAX in company’s name?) Everything you see looks more realistic with a 4K display and 110 Field of View. One of the most common issues associated with HMD VR headsets is the fatigue they cause after extended usage. PIMAX 4K VR headset features double-gyroscope to minimize vertigo effect, while the anti-blue laser lens protects vision and adjusts light automatically. Native support for 5.1 surround sound means the audio is as immersive as the visuals, while the integrated microphone makes communication effortless.
The headset works with a huge number of visually stunning games, including Steam VR and Oculus games and plugs into USB and HDMI ports. It’s able to track head movements precisely and knows what a user is looking at, resulting in an ultra-realistic gaming and user experience. The light weight and compact design allows gamers and general users to enjoy their favorite games and movies for long periods of time. Unlike most other VR headsets, PIMAX 4K VR requires modest system hardware and works on an Intel Core i5/equivalent PC with at least 4GB RAM and Direct X 10 graphics card such as AMD R9 290 and NVidia GTX960. The port compatibility list includes HDMI 1.4B and USB 3.0 as well as 2.0.
With PIMAX 8K VR headset just around the corner, the 4K HMD is still miles ahead of the competition and a rare-breed with incredibly high resolution. The only thing you should be worried about is probably the processing power required to light up 8.29 million pixels. Although the official PC requirements are not so demanding, you may need a much more powerful PC in order to take full benefit of the technology. The headset is also compatible with a huge number of games and platforms, making it an ideal choice for gamers on budget. If you are amongst those who are always willing to try the latest and greatest in technology, PIMAX 4K VR headset won’t disappoint you and is arguably the beginning of the next big thing in the VR world!
