Oculus Rift has announced that 45,000 DK2 dev kits have been pre-ordered and will start shipping out to developers by the end of the month.

Pre-orders for the second iteration of the headset went live in March with a $350 price tag.

While not a commercial build, there have been improvements made with DK2 since the first iteration, such low-persistence, high-definition display and precise, low-latency positional head tracking.

It also features a 1080p display, as well as the Crystal Cove camera with improved head-tracking. It also weighs 440 grams, which make it lighter than the first dev kit.

Oculus said 10,000 of the DK2 kits will be shipped by the end of July to developers and others in the following weeks.

The original DK1 has sold close to 60,000 units.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
