Go Beyond the Minimum VR Specs

January 25, 2017 | By brian

If you’ve been shopping for a new gaming PC recently, chances are you may have come across models advertising that they are “VR Ready”. Although it’s not always the case, the specs of these computers allow them to play VR titles, but the experience is significantly watered down.

A VR gaming experience requires a significant amount of horsepower to handle all of the processes going on, from the hardware tracking to the frame rates and the textures. In fact, a PC should be able to efficiently run VR content at a minimum of 90 frames per second for each eye for the best experience. Because we believe in providing our customers optimum performance, each and every one of our future-proof gaming computers is built for optimal VR specifications to virtually guarantee a smooth and fully immersive experience, pun intended.

If you’ve experienced stutter during an intense FPS session, you know this can instantly ruin the moment, and considering VR is meant to make you feel like you’re literally in the world you happen to be exploring, it’s twice as important to make sure your PC will deliver the performance when it counts. After all, what fun would it be to play the recently released Resident Evil 7: Biohazard if the game becomes choppy just as one of the mutant creatures emerge from the shadows, right?

Check out our Virtual Reality on ORIGIN PC page to see the minimum and optimal requirements when using the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.

For additional information on ORIGIN PC’s line of VR ready computers like the portable EVO15-S Ultra Thin Gaming Laptop or to order your own customized PC, call 1-877-674-4460 to speak with a sales representative.  We offer 24/7 customer support and worldwide shipping options.
