Today i'm back with yet another intresting tech product. Pimax is a Chinese startup company which made waves in 2017 with its virtual reality headset which is the first 8K VR headset in the world. Let's see more about Pimax in this thread. So let's get started with this thread.


  • Pimax 8K offers 200° Field of Vision (FOV), which is far closer to matching the natural human FOV of 220°.
  • Pimax 8K VR (3840x2160 per eye) can dive into a world of clarity, while the graininess and "screen door" will never disturb you again.
  • Pimax 8K SDK integrates with Unity and Unreal Engine, and supports C++ API.
  • Pimax provies you low latency of the whole system, sharply shortening traditional LCD response time.
  • Pimax has one of the biggest lens, 53mm, provide better optical performance, image quality and immersed experience.

Pimax is a Chinese startup company which made waves in 2017 with its virtual reality headset which is the first 8K VR headset in the world. The headset has a field of view spanning 200 degrees and boasts two 4K display panels, with each having a resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels, amounting to 16.6 million pixels in total. The Pimax 8K VR supports refresh rates of 75 and 90Hz per eye, or 150 and 180Hz with Brainwarp, in addition to being compatible with USB 3.0 data transfers and having two 3.5mm audio jacks.

Pimax requires a relatively capable computer in order to operate, with users being expected to have a rig featuring the Nvidia GTX 980, GTX 1070, AMD R9 Nano, or a GPU of equivalent power at a minimum. Pimax 8k VR was designed to be as versatile as possible, supporting both seated and standing virtual reality experiences, as well as hand motion and room-wide positional tracking.

Pimax 8K VR features both hand motion detection and positional tracking capabilities, the head-mounted display is able to move alongside the user and rotate around their head to an extent, thus nullifying the 20 degrees of difference between its field of view and that of the human eye. All of this should ultimately translate into more realistic and immersive content which can be experienced using the Pimax headset, the company says.

Pimax 8K VR has an important feature as it could address one of the most common complaints associated with VR – motion sickness. Apart from nausea and related symptoms, the Pimax 8K VR is also seeking to reduce the so-called “screen door effect” to a significant degree, i.e. avoid scenarios in which users are able to see fine lines running between virtual pixels. This particular phenomenon is another common complaint about contemporary VR solutions and while it doesn’t pose any health risks, it has a high immersion-breaking potential and is generally seen as an annoyance by users.
