    Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

    "at that kind of resolution and refresh rate, you weren't going to be driving it without something that has DisplayPort on it anyway".
    My laptop is a more powerful gaming PC (GTX1070, i7-8750H, 16GB RAM, NVMe) than my Desktop PC (GTX970, i7-4770K, 8GB RAM, SATA SSD). My laptop only has HDMI 2.0. :'(
