“This configuration will be held for the lifetime of the Rift and should drop in price over time,” said chief boffin Atman Binstock in a detailed blog post.

The specs are as follows:

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
  • Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
  • 8GB+ RAM
  • Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports
  • Windows 7 SP1 or newer

“The goal is for all Rift games and applications to deliver a great experience on this configuration,” said the company.

“Ultimately, we believe this will be fundamental to VR’s success, as developers can optimize and tune their game for a known specification, consistently achieving presence and simplifying development.”
