VIVE recommends certain minimum component specs for a PC to run VIVE. These components such as your graphics card, processor, and memory all impact the quality of the VR experience you see inside the headset.
The graphics card is the most important component in your PC for VR. It is responsible for the production of the graphics displayed inside the headset. The more powerful the graphics card, the more detail you will see in images in your VR experience.
Think of the processor like the brain of your computer. It is responsible for processing the data required to run the VR experience. The newer the processor, the more calculations that can be done to optimize the game for the best VR experience.
RAM is a form of data storage for frequently used computer programs, such as VR games. The more RAM you have, the more information the compter can store for faster access.
For the best experience with VIVE, the computer specifications are recommended:
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 or Radeon™ RX 480, equivalet or better
- Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4590 or AMD FX™ 8350, equivalent or better
- Memory: 4GB of RAM or more
