AMD approves several chips for VR

The Oculus Rift virtual reality device has every chance to become one of the landmark new devices of this year. The device will be able to immerse users into a virtual world but the price to pay, apart from cash, is that the Rift needs serious computer power. Up until now only Intel processors have been certified for the Rift and the slowest chip among them is the Intel Core i5-4590K with more powerful chips highly recommended. What about AMD, though?

Well, AMD has also announced a list of processors that are able to provide enough performance for Oculus Rift. Apparently all you need is an AMD FX processor or an AMD APU that runs at 3.9 GHz or higher. Here are the chips that, according to AMD, have enough power to drive the Rift:

AMD also stresses that having a powerful GPU is more important than having a fast CPU so the company will likely recommend its high-end GPUs for the Rift too. The good news is that AMD will be the cheapest way to get the Rift working for you – the Athlon X4 870K processor, which runs at 3.9 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) and which is capable of driving the Rift, sells for just around USD 100.
