Microsoft reveals minimum PC specs for Windows 10 VR headsets
« on: November 21, 2016, 09:27:24 PM »
Microsoft is planning to support virtual reality experiences for all Windows 10 PCs as part of the Creators Update next year. While HTCís Vive and Oculusí Rift use their own custom software, Microsoft is attempting to create its own VR platform with Windows Holographic, the same environment that powers the companyís HoloLens headset. The software giant revealed that VR headsets for Windows 10 will start at $299, and now itís starting to detail the PC specs required to power those VR experiences.

In the latest test builds of Windows 10, Microsoft is now including a "Windows Holographic First Run" application that tests a machine to ensure itís compatible. Iíve tested a variety of machines, and it appears that Microsoftís minimum requirements are pretty basic:

4GB of RAM
USB 3.0 port
A graphics card with DirectX 12 support
4 CPU cores, including dual-core processors with hyperthreading

I would say get at least a RX480 or 1060. Minimum requirements on gaming means you'll be getting the worst possible experience. This goes to all games not limited to VR.
