Ars Technica: Hands-on: Oculus Quest is an intriguing new middle ground for VR. “Let’s get one thing out of the way right up front: Oculus Quest is not the wireless, PC-free version of the Rift you may have been dreaming of. The Snapdragon 835 SoC powering Quest is much closer to a mid-range mobile phone than the Nvidia GTX 960 graphics card (and surrounding Windows PC) required to run a tethered Rift. The field of view and maximum refresh rate on the Quest both seem more comparable to the portable Oculus Go, which is a bit of downgrade from the Rift as well (though we have yet to confirm precise numbers for any of these devices).”
