Additional options to elevate the Triple Monitor setup on Meta Quest 2. 

1. If you have multiple input types, try connecting your monitor with various display cables. This is a far cheaper option since you can practically try it out by clicking your monitor to your PC using the multiple available inputs (display port, HGMI, and VGA).

2. Purchase a display emulator to externally connect a display port to your PC and create multiple screens.

3. Other than hardware emulators, you can use software emulators like ‘space desk’ to set up multiple screens.

FAQs

Is Quest 3 coming out?

Meta Confirms Quest 3 VR Headset Is Arriving In 2023.

Does having two monitors affect VR?

In almost all cases a second screen will have little to no effect, potentially dropping a couple of frames per second as a result. Considering virtual reality already requires a relatively high-end GPU in the first place, extra monitors shouldn’t noticeably impact your experience in any way.
