Vive Financing Program Expands to GTX 1070

Getting into true roomscale VR gaming is not an inexpensive purchase. In fact, I think the biggest barrier to entry currently is cost. HTC is looking to remedy this by now including an NVIDIA GTX 1070 to its financing program. We have been testing real world VR gaming and GPUs way before since it was the cool thing to do, and I can assure you this, if I was building a Vive VR system today, the GTX 1070 is absolutely the sweet-spot entry point in video cards. I do not suggest with going with anything less for a new build. The fact is that the GTX 1070 and better can support much better Image Quality that greatly increases the immersion factor when gaming in VR.

First up آ– just need a graphics card to get VR Ready? Starting today, we’ve got the NVIDIA GeForceآ® GTX 1070 Founders Edition and HTC VIVE for only $999.99. That’s an estimated $200 off suggested retail price for both.

We are waiting for AMD to come back on the scene with it new RX Vega GPU before we build our next VR Leaderboard, but its product stack still remains unchanged with the exception of the GTX 1080 Ti heading up the list now. However, in terms of AMD RX 480 / RX 580 VR performance, things are looking up.
