SteamVR Looks to Make VR more Available

Valve Smoothing

Valve has developed a new feature of SteamVR that is called “motion smoothing” and is intended to allow higher frame rates with lower powered graphics cards or higher resolutions with more powerful cards when users want to see VR apps. Unlike motion interpolation in TVs, which adds additional frames between existing frames, the technique is said to look at multiple frames and synthesize additional frames which are added after the rendered images.

The technique is only available with Windows 10 running on Nvidia cards.
