Official Oculus Rift Recommended PC Specs

The official oculus rift recommended PC specs have been announced by Oculus VR. Having the correct PC build is key for getting comfortable, sustained presence. To achieve the full Rift experience, Oculus VR recommends the following system build:

Along with the system specs, Oculus VR also released the new Oculus PC SDK 0.6.0

The compositor service moves distortion rendering from the application to the OVRServer process. This is an architectural change that enables features like layers and other performance and quality improvements in the future.

Layer support allows an application to send multiple independent render targets to the compositor. For example, you might render the heads-up display, background, and game space each to their own separate layer. Each layer can have a different size, resolution, and update rate, which can be used to improve performance and rendering quality, particularly around text.

The API simplification is a major step toward v1.0 including removing support for application-based distortion rendering.

You can read the full release notes for 0.6.0 here.
