Step 2: Make sure the Rest of the System can handle it

Even though your AMD VR Ready processor provides the powerful performance you need to drive a great VR experience, the rest of your system needs to  be up to snuff, too. That means:

  • At least 8GB of RAM
  • A VR capable graphics card like the Radeon™ RX 480 or GeForce GTX 970
  • Video Output: HDMI™ 1.3 (Oculus Rift), HDMI 1.4 or Displayport 1.2 (HTC Vive)
  • USB Ports: 3x USB 3.0 plus 1x USB 20 (Rift), 1x USB .0 (Vive)
  • Operating System: Windows® 7 SP1 64-bit or newer
  • As VR Technology, HMDs and other VR hardware and software evolve and/or become available, these criteria may change without notice. If you’re buying a pre-built system, check with your PC or system manufacturer to confirm VR capabilities.
