Oculus gears up for the Master Race as it reveals its “mind-blowing” recommended specifications for the PC platform.


With the consumer-version expected to roll out “in months time” Oculus VR, prime developers of the much awaited Oculus Rift gives us the official info about the recommended specifications to smoothly run Oculus Rift on PC, mainly the suggested processor, memory size and of course, the GPU.

Listed to give “full rift experience”, Oculus states that the recommended PC specifications as:

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
  • Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • 8GB+ RAM
  • HDMI 1.3 video output supporting a 297MHz clock via a direct output architecture
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer

Sources state that a the most affordable build one could have that includes these components would cost to about $800 (roughly Php 35,000), and with the Oculus Rift looking to cost at around $200, that would mean that you’d better start saving up for at least $1,000 (about Php 50,000) just so you could get into VR.  While it may sound costly, Oculus VR Chief Architect  Atman Binstock states that this “ensures a better player experience of comfortable sustained presence”.
