With the VR topic being so hot at the moment, it would’ve been silly to assume that Microsoft wouldn’t be all over it. The company is making the necessary preparations for the launch of their very own VR headset unit. Named simply Windows 10 VR, the devices are slated to make an appearance on public marketplaces in 2017. With 2017 just around the corner, fans are eager to test out Microsoft’s VR solution.

Sources indicate that the tech icon has been testing the headset in order to accurately pinpoint the minimum PC specifications required for using it. The most surprising thing here is that the results pointed towards a highly affordable configuration as the lowest you can go with the Windows 10 VR system. PC users that will be interested in trying out the headset firsthand will need at least 4 GB of RAM and a dual core processing unit capable of hyperthreading. Considering that today most video games require at least 8 GB of RAM and a quad core processor, it would be fair to say that Microsoft’s upcoming virtual reality headset has more than reasonable demands. The graphics processing unit featured in your configuration must also support DirectX12. To connect the unit to your PC, you will need a USB 3.0 port.

There is another subject for discussion in the Microsoft camp regarding VR, in the form of a Windows 10 operating Alcatel Idol 4. The device is said to be the first ever produced by the manufacturer which runs Microsoft’s Windows OS. Also, it will include VR capabilities, meaning that Microsoft is moving on the mobile front as well when it comes to virtual reality.

As we approach release time, more information will become available about the upcoming VR endeavors from Microsoft.

  1. How about the ImmersiON-VRelia products? Rated “Best of CES 2015” by GamBit magazine and winner for “Best designed VR-Headset” by VR-iPhone.com?

    Thanks.

  2. hello. The first two… Oculus and the HTC connect to computers… Powerful. What is the definition of powerful? Memory, etc? Thanks

  3. Have you tried StarVR? I have. The potential is there but its not ready to compete with the likes of Oculus or Vive. At least as of my last try of it. I’m sure they have improved it but they are also not planning a consumer release now and are instead focusing on the DoD and research markets. I found their purported 5k screen to not add much to visual quality and there was more pixelation. The wider field of view also didn’t do a lot for me, BUT on that I will say I only got 15 minutes with it and it takes longer than that to get used to “seeing” with devices like this. So with more time that expanded field of view might have meant more to me. Again there is no doubting the potential there, but I don’t think I could give it the best VR tag. Then again, it’s subjective and this is only my opinion on the current state of it. Though I wouldn’t call FOVE of Carl Zeiss great VR either. OSVR isn’t even in the ballpark as of my last try. So yeah. The list is also subjective. Hehe.

  4. Shame, shame!

    virtual reality is for sinners. Jesus is all you need. What’s next, virtual brothels? Shame, shame, shame.
