Does anyone know if I can push an HTC vive or Oculus rig with an AMD FirePro W7100. I am sure it might not be idealbut currently I am looking to see if I can get by before making a bigger investment.
No, the W7100 is not qualified to support VR.
Technically it is possible. But probably you will have performance problems.
Your GPU is barely meet minimum system requirements for VR
I have noticed other individuals who tried robust cards having issues with no video signal being sent to the goggles. If technically it is possible wouldnt a video signal still pass, even if its poor quality ? Is there a specific driver that would need to be installed to attempt this with the w7100 ?
thanks for your help
Ok thank you.
For VR you need the latest driver(you don't need any specific driver version).
"even if its poor quality"-low fps is not equal to bad quality.
Ok great good to know. So it looks like I might have a chance to get something going.
Thanks for your help.
At Oculus Connect today, CEO Brendan Iribe announced a new, lower minimum hardware spec for using Oculus Rift. The new spec is thanks to a technology called Asynchronous Spacewarp, allowing systems to deliver a stable 45 frames per second, while the ASW technology effectively doubles that and fills in the gaps. That means smooth VR running on cheaper hardware. Here it is:
