One of the major challenges of ramping up support for the fledgling VR industry is ensuring interoperability for major VR platforms. In theory, games should look identical on every headset, but companies that optimize for one specific platform over another may be able to wring specific advantages out of doing so. If you know how the Oculus Rift’s lenses make content look versus the HTC Vive, for example, it could prove easier to optimize for ...

When Nvidia launched its Pascal family, it made it clear SLI ...
