Check out The Oculus Rift’s Recommended Specifications

If you’ve been wondering what kind of PC you need in order to get your virtual reality on, wonder no more. Oculus VR just released the recommended specs for The Rift.

Here’s what you’ll need to optimally run the Rift on your PC:

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
  • Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • 8GB+ RAM
  • Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer

The goal is for all Rift games and applications to deliver a great experience on this configuration. Ultimately, we believe this will be fundamental to VR’s success, as developers can optimize and tune their game for a known specification, consistently achieving presence and simplifying development.

Alongside these specs, Oculus VR also announced that a new version of its SDK  is available for developers.
