Oculus has today announced a partnership with Asus, Dell and Alienware to produce ‘Oculus Ready’ PCs, pricing at under $1000.
At today’s keynote event at this year’s Oculus Connect , VP of product Nate Mitchell announced that the company would be partnering with PC manufacturers to bring ‘Oculus Ready” PCs to the hands of consumers.
Oculus has set up partnerships with NVIDIA, Asus, Alienware, Dell, AMD, and Intel to bring the computers to market, which will feature a special ‘Oculus Ready’ tag to certify that the PC is indeed robust enough to deal with the heightened requirements of stereoscopic rendering.
The basic specs listed for the new Oculus Rift require at very least a GTX 970 or AMD equivalent to run.
