Go Beyond VR Minimum Specs

Introducing OPTIMAL VR Specifications
for the Best VR Experience

At ORIGIN PC, we’re committed to providing the best, smoothest and most immersive VR experiences possible using future-proof technology in all our systems.

Some PCs and VR devices that claim to be “VR Ready” only use the bare minimum specifications to deliver a watered-down VR experience. To support room-scale VR, improved hardware tracking, ultra-smooth frame rates, and high-res textures, ORIGIN PC has created OPTIMAL VR specifications.

Designed to guarantee the absolute best VR experience on the PC platform without cutting corners, ORIGIN PC's OPTIMAL VR specifications will prepare you for demanding VR software in the future. ORIGIN PC’s free lifetime 24/7 US-based support will always be on standby to guarantee that you’ll be up and running in virtual worlds on an ORIGIN PC with OPTIMAL VR specifications.

Immerse yourself in spectacular virtual worlds, battle killer robots and be on the forefront of Virtual Reality powered by your high-performance ORIGIN PC with OPTIMAL VR specifications. Experience the next level of immersive gaming with our VR PCs and VR laptops.

OPTIMAL VR with ORIGIN High-Performance PCs

For the best VR experience possible, it’s highly recommended for a PC to run VR content at around 90 frames per second or better for each eye receiving VR output. You’ll need some serious power to attain smooth framerates for your VR headset.

Not all VR Ready PCs or devices can provide a consistent and smooth VR experience with the minimum specifications. VR is an experience that is more enjoyable when you have performance that’s above the recommended specifications.

ORIGIN PC Desktops and EON Series Laptops can be customized to meet the OPTIMAL VR specifications thanks to the latest graphics cards and processors.

Thanks to the PC platform, you are able to make upgrades to your PC in the future. Other VR platforms are more restrictive, and won’t allow you to upgrade or have the best graphical performance with high frame rates as software becomes more demanding. If you want the best VR experience today and in the future, you’ll need a high-performance PC with OPTIMAL VR technology.

VR Software

Once you have a high-performance system with OPTIMAL VR technology and a VR headset, you’ll need some VR software to take full advantage of VR.

VR games offer immersive gaming experiences and interactivity. We’re big fans of VR games such as Raw Data, Hover Junkers and EVE: Valkyrie.

Other than games, there are several VR applications that allow you to do and see amazing things. Create art with Tilt Brush by Google, travel the world with Google Earth VR and watch 360 degree movies.
