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.
