Oculus VR has announced the computer specifications recommended to run the Oculus Rift headset.
The company has confirmed that the following specs will hold for the lifetime of the headset:
NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
The Rift will also require:
Windows 7 SP1 or newer
2x USB 3.0 ports
HDMI 1.3 video output supporting a 297MHz clock via a direct output architecture
"The goal is for all Rift games and applications to deliver a great experience on this configuration by default. We believe this 'it just works' experience will be fundamental to VR's success, given that an underperforming system will fail to deliver comfortable presence," chief architect Atman Binstock said.
"The recommended spec will stay constant over the lifetime of the Rift. As the equivalent-performance hardware becomes less expensive, more users will have systems capable of the full Rift experience. Developers, in turn, can rely on Rift users having these modern machines, allowing them to optimize their game for a known target, simplifying development."
