VR Ready PCs

Just a couple of days ago future Oculus announced that users will soon be able to pre-order VR ready PCs. These machines are being developed by Dell, Alienware and Asus.

Starting from $1499, buyers can expect to see the following minimum specs.

  • GPU: GTX 970 or above/equivalent
  • PC with USB 3.0 support
  • CPU: Intel Core i5- 4590 equivalent or greater CPU
  • 8GB+ RAM of Memory/RAM
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports and HDMI 1.3
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer

Special VR Ready PCs are one thing but according to Dell and Alienware, both companies will focus on making VR readiness a standard for their desktop PCs.

In a statement by Frank Azor, Alienware and XPS General Manager at Dell, he said the following about VR Ready PCs from the company.

You will see us design pretty much every system moving forward with VR in mind. In the future, hopefully, every Dell and Alienware PC will meet the minimum specifications of VR.

According to Nvidia, by the time Oculus Rift comes out, there are going to be 13 million VR Ready PCs in the hands of consumers. That’s not a very big number considering the scale of PC market. It will take a little time for VR devices to settle in but the start is pretty good.

Gear VR, PlayStation VR, HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift are all hoping to grab the biggest piece of the market share. In the next couple years, we are expecting this industry to grow and to have millions of VR units out their.
