Does a VR headset count as an external monitor?
I've seen warnings about very big performance drops when using the internal monitor, and was wondering if I'd need to buy an external monitor to use in addition to the VR headset if I want to do things/play games in VR. The only reason I'd be getting an eGPU would be for VR.
From the experience of certain people, it seems to be implied to be the case that the VR headset effectively works as the external monitor (e.g this very short eGPU.io thread https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/vr-hmd-vive-oculus-as-headless-display-will-it-work/)
But I'd like a general answer that doesn't depend on someone's specific build and vr choice, if possible, and thus could be transferred to my use case more easily.
