Lower Requirements For A New Gaming Frontier

Modern virtual reality can be a thrilling, transformative experience, and increasing its audience benefits everyone. For that to happen, the barrier to entry has to be driven down not just by a larger install base and more affordable hardware, but also by innovation on the software side.

Exceptionally smooth Oculus Rift VR experiences can now be enjoyed on Radeon™ RX 470 GPUs, coupled with the affordable quad-core AMD FX™ 4350 CPU, without sacrificing visual fidelity. The secret to enabling this is Oculus’ newly announced Asynchronous Spacewarp (ASW) feature, which complements their existing Asynchronous Timewarp technology. ASW compares previously rendered frames, detects motion between them, and projects new frames that accurately reflect where various scene components should be based on the user’s movement.

These types of calculations require serious computational power and ASW can harness our AMD LiquidVR™ technology in new Radeon™ ReLive drivers, to generate the projected frames without burdening the main graphics engine.

tl;dr — It’s magic so just enjoy the ride!

Exceptional AAA Gaming

While it might be your primary reason for buying it, this system isn’t just for VR games and experiences. When you want to take a break from your favorite virtual world, the Gamer Ultra VR PC does a fantastic job powering your favorite eSports games and AAA titles.

In fact, I just got my hands on one and am looking forward to showing you what it’s capable of, from the latest Touch and non-touch software on Oculus Rift to stuff like Battlefield 1 and Civilization VI.  We’ll take a deep dive together later this week, so bookmark this page for updates or follow all the latest Radeon news at @Radeon on Twitter and our brand new page on Facebook.

  1. Everyone please don’t buy this. Wait for Ryzen chip or go intel, the gpu is straight up fire and i recommend it.. but the cpu is a definitely no.

    1. Thanks for the RX 470 love! We’re super excited about Ryzen, too, but don’t forget that the FX-4350 CPU offers a lot of value and performance for its price! And don’t doubt it until you try it. Oculus’ ASW is kinda magical.

  2. I love that it’s a ready made PC in my price range, but my question is how does the GPU compare to something like the GTX 1050? I’ve been looking to play a lot of games such as Smite, Borderlands, Divinity, Skyrim, etc. with out frame rate drops under 60FPS.

    1. *Waves*
      I’ll have some benchmarks of this very system for you on this blog soon, but here’s the truth: the RX 470 blows away the GTX 1050. They’re not in the same league.
      Here are some benchmarks from Gamers Nexus, but I invite you to search for other comparisons too.

      You’re looking at about 85% better performance.

      Holler if you have any other questions!

    2. A 1050 is a perfectly capable E sports card, and okay as a card for AAA titles at 1080p medium settings at 60fps, a 470 can max out any game at 1080p, 60fps or close, it’s a good entry level 1440p card, and it can do lower end VR no problems, things a 1050 couldn’t even touch on, however, the 470 Is also 60$ more and requires external power.

  3. Haha, this is just an ad for an inferior pc. These specs are slightly worse than a self built Intel / Nvidia pc for about the same price. No thanks.

  4. 2 things
    A. Will it be possible to install SSD drive for system inside? or do I have to use usb for that?
    B. If besides gaming I’d like to create games or graphics, how well this setup is prepared for that? Should I seek something stronger?
