We have new details about Virtual Reality glasses Oculus Rift CV1, which will require no less than three USB 3.0 ports with a USB 2.0 port for operation. This large amount of USB connections would be necessary to give life to the glasses, camera monitoring, headphones and possibly commanding the Xbox One, since by now things are not officially confirmed.
Oculus Rift CV1 requires 4 USB ports, 8GB RAM and 64-bit Windows
The other change made to the specifications is the requirement for 64bit Windows 7 or newer. Having as recommended 8 GB of RAM + you have to add an Intel Core i5-4590 with the familiar GeForce GTX 970. And that’s what we know for now, we know CV1 is launching towards the end of Q1 next year. Previously, Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR has announced that, the Virtual Reality Glasses cost will be higher than $ 350, barely a week ago, he said that, the price would be “at least $300”.
“You know, I’m going to be perfectly honest with you. We’re roughly in [the $350] ballpark, but it’s going to cost more than that. I can’t tell you that it’s going to be $350, and I would say I think people are going to be happy with what they get for the price because I really do think it’s going to be that best VR headset you can buy,” Oculus founder Palmer Luckey told Road To VR. “And the reason for that is that we’ve added a lot of technology to this thing beyond what existed in the DK1 and DK2 days.”
