Valve’s latest SteamVR update now allows gamers with Nvidia GPUs to change the refresh rate of their Valve Index headsets without needing a restart of the software.

Gamers can now switch between 80Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, and 144Hz on the fly as well as increase the brightness of the headset beyond what was initially possible.

Unfortunately, settings are the same regardless of game. So 144Hz Beat Saber will become 144Hz Half-Life: Alyx unless manually changed. It would be nice to have everything set by whatever you have it for the game you’re playing so GPU strain doesn’t crank down the framerate.

The update is available now.
