Do you want to know what are Oculus Rift spec requirements as of right now?

With each year and month, new hardware comes out, and as far as I’ve seen, official Oculus Rift specs page isn’t updated all the time. I’ll start with recommended specifications and then go through minimum necessities.

I will also list all the GPU’s individually down below, in case you are not sure where a specific graphics card lies. Use CTRL+F to search.

So, let’s start with:




Oculus Rift RECOMMENDED Spec Requirements

AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
AMD Radeon R9 290
AMD Radeon R9 290X
AMD Radeon R9 390
AMD Radeon R9 390X
AMD Radeon R9 Fury
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X
AMD Radeon R9 Nano
AMD FirePro W9100
AMD FirePro WX7100
AMD FirePro WX7100 (Laptop)
AMD Radeon RX 480
AMD Radeon RX 570
AMD Radeon RX 580
AMD Radeon RX 580 Mobile

With the CPU, however, the list is huge so I won’t be listing all of them. If your CPU cost more than 100 dollars and was bought recently, it’s likely that you have the CPU recommendation.

Oculus Rift doesn’t require much from processors, so don’t worry too much.

RAM is pretty much the same. Either DDR3 or DDR4 works well. At the moment, DDR4 costs a bit much so if you are on a budget, go with 8GB of memory. Current games are slowly creeping towards 16GB, so I’d recommend keeping an extra RAM slot free for future upgrades.

 




Oculus Rift MINIMUM Spec Requirements

oculus rift spec requirements minimum

Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 1050 4GB / AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater
Alternative Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 960 4GB / AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater
CPU Intel i3-6100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200, FX4350 or greater
Memory 8GB+ RAM
Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
USB Ports 1x USB 3.0 port, plus 2x USB 2.0 ports
OS Windows 8.1 or newer
All the graphics cards that fall under MINIMUM requirements:
 NVIDIA GTX 960 (4GB)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (4GB)
NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti
NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti (laptop)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M
AMD Radeon RX 470

So here it is. The newly released GTX 1050 3GB version still seems to fall a bit short. The GTX 1050 4GB one is only shipped on laptops.
