The HTC Vive wireless adapter is available through the HTC website for $299.99 for the HTC Vive and $359.99 for the HTC Vive Pro. That's because the Pro version comes with a $60 compatibility pack, which includes attachments unique to the Vive Pro. While you can pre-order now, the adapter is not quite out in the wild yet. You can secure yourself one with a pre-order, and then it will ship when the adapters release on September 24. Your pre-order will also come with a two-month trial to Viveport Subscription, HTC's Virtual Reality store that gives you access to five new titles every month.
The Vive Wireless Adapter will work with both the Vive and Vive Pro, but Vive Pro users will need the additional compatibility pack that adds a Pro connection cable, foam padding, and a unique attachment device. You install the adapter to your current system using a PCI-e card and a sensor on your PC that broadcasts to the headset. It will have a broadcast range of six meters and a 150 degree field of view from the sensor. It is powered by HTC's QC 3.0 PowerBank, which can double as a 10500mAh battery charger for your phone.
HTC has partnered with some big names to come up with a solution to the problem of latency while still maintaining the performance required for VR. It will run using Intel's WiGig specification on an interference-free wireless band and make use of DisplayLink's XR codec, which means high performance and no lag without draining the battery.
