Might be wrong, but assembling VR headset with Mali 400 as GPU… what’s the point?

RK3188! like strapping a 4yrs old phablet to your face.

@Stane1983
because they can. hahahaha…..
its a brick for your face. and a fashion stamen LULZ

only use for videos, but from experience with google cardboard clone (good optics), it is also a piece of crap.
“5.5, 1920×1080 resolution” translate to ~540p of vid/img for each eye.

Wonder if this would be any good for watching movies in 3d

At first i also think just put a low-end tablet/phone in cardboard, but after play with it for days, i find rock chip did optimize a lot in this new area. and yesterday they release the RK3399, and claim the RK3399 is designed for VR headset also.

Mali 400 is just old GPU, however, there is no “big” android VR games right now, @Tired8281, for just watching 3d movies, it’s ok.

Would love to have one based on Nvidia Tegra X1 (or at least K1) instead
