Oculus made a name for itself developing high-end VR headsets designed to work with a PC. The company's Oculus Rift headset was officially released in 2016, and for a time that was Oculus’ main platform. However, over the years, Oculus’ standalone Quest headset has eclipsed the Rift in popularity, which is why Oculus has decided to phase out the Rift brand by the end of 2021.

At the same time, Oculus plans to continually support PC VR game development and deliver new VR experiences that require more powerful external hardware. Using an Oculus Link cable, players can connect their Oculus Quest or Quest 2 to an external PC, which is capable of running higher-end VR experiences that were originally designed with the Rift in mind.

This is a long way of saying, if you’re thinking of getting a new Oculus headset, you should probably just buy a Quest instead of a Rift.
