Razer has released their newest OSVR HDK2 development kit for $399.99, offering very similar specifications to the $599 Oculus Rift. 

This new developer kit from OSVR offers an upgraded display which gives the new OSVR headset a refresh rate of 90Hz and a total resolution of 2160x1200, 1080x1200 for each eye, giving the headset a significant upgrade over the previous version which had a single 60Hz 1920x1080 display.

The OSVR headset will also come with a 100Hz IR camera for positional tracking and individual eye focusing, which will allow the headset to be adjusted from +4.5 to -2 for each eye. The headsets eye focusing is a great addition for players with glasses, though the adjustment range is not wide enough for most short-sighted glasses users. 

This headset will also not come with integrated audio like the Oculus Rift but will have a removable face mask like the Oculus Rift. The headset will also work with a variety of controllers and support SteamVR, giving this headset access to a lot of existing OpenVR games.

This headset is a development kit and is not expected to be used by the consumer market, but it does offer sone insight into the future of the VR landscape, where VR headsets will be more like monitors and artificial exclusivity to platforms like Oculus will hopefully be non-existent.

The OSVR 1.4 HDK is still available to purchase for $299, with this new OSVR HDK2 model costing $399.
