How fast does your PC need to be?

PC & Tech Authority - - REVIEWS | WEARABLES -

The Vive Pro has slightly faster sys­tem re­quire­ments than the Vive, al­though you’ll only need a pro­ces­sor that can match an In­tel Core i5-4590 or AMD FX 8350. Graph­ics are more de­mand­ing: at the very least, you’ll need a Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290. The rest of the specs shouldn’t be a prob­lem: 4GB of RAM, Dis­playPort 1.2 or newer, one USB 3 port, and Win­dows 8.1 or higher. Win­dows 10 is rec­om­mended.

It doesn’t take a ge­nius to see that the graph­ics card is the key com­po­nent. While Mi­crosoft claims Win­dows Mixed Re­al­ity can get away with mid-range GeForce cards, HTC says, “for the best ex­pe­ri­ence [you’ll need] Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070/Quadro P5000 or above, or AMD Radeon Vega 56 or above.”
