Keeping up with the Oculus news recently, we figured there might be something lurking within the HDMI cable, just like with Apple's Thunderbolt cable from awhile back.

With a couple flicks of our metal spudger, we find we were right—a hidden IC presents itself!

We find the Spectra7 VR7100 processor buried under what seems to be a thick encasing of glue.

According to their product brief, the little doohickey "reduces size and weight of HDMI copper interconnects..." and "supports video formats up to 4K 60p" — hot stuff!

Well now we know why the cables got so much thinner when compared to the DK1.
