I'm thinking if it was that easy, we'd have SLI support in key titles by now, or it's only working in, like, Unreal Engine 3 or....<shrug>. Dunno, I'm sure at some point we get a hardware solution...

Sony's VR headset will probably drive the public demand.........I suspect they will move a lot of units, if not at first, then once it catches on.

So just in case anyone cares, while you can use one of the low-end Vizios as a 4K monitor, there are some annoyances that caused me to unscrew the legs and get it ready to drop back off at Best Buy,...

I own an Oculus Rift. When the hands ship, I'll own them too. I almost bought a Vive, but decided to be patient as they are, to me, essentially the same. Also, the available space I'd have to...

Do any of the new, inexpensive Vizio 4k's work as Monitors?

And by work I mean mouse-lag, is there a game mode or is the native refresh of the display acceptable enough to use as a monitor with a mouse/keyboard.

On my current 39" Panasonic from about 5...

I think the issue is VR requires those images to be 100% spot-on together (for stereo 3D) and accurate, neither card could drop frames that the other didn't as well...keeping them in sync may go...
