Oculus Recommended Hardware Specs Revealed

Atman Binstock, Chief Architect at Oculus and technical director of the Rift, posted the recommended hardware specs for the Oculus Rift this afternoon.

Given the challenges around VR graphics performance, the Rift will have a recommended specification to ensure that developers can optimize for a known hardware configuration, which ensures a better player experience of comfortable sustained presence. The recommended PC specification is an NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD 290, Intel i5-4590, and 8GB RAM. This configuration will be held for the lifetime of the Rift and should drop in price over time.
