Nvidia Geforce GTX VR Ready program for Nvidia virtual reality ready PCs, Notebooks and Graphics Cards. GeForce GTX cards that meet the performance requirements of VR Ready include GeForce GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti and TITAN X. Nvidia partners that meet these requirement will have a ” VR Ready” badge on the system and Graphic cards.
VR Ready program drives the combination of GTX GPU and Nvidia Game ready drivers. NVIDIA GameWorks VR and DesignWorks VR technologies deliver the fast performance and low latency. It provide an amazing virtual reality experience.
Minimum System Requirements for Nvidia Virtual Reality
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or greater
- CPU: Intel Core i5- 4590 equivalent or greater
- Notebook: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
- Memory/RAM: 8GB+ RAM
- Outputs: 2x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.3
- OS: Windows 7 SP1 or newer
Virtual Reality (VR) is going to change the way we play and experience games by placing us in the games, directly in the action, with a full 3D world all around us. For providing immersive VR experience, there is a need a lot of Graphics power. The upcoming Oculus VR will run on resolution of 2160 x 1200 at 90 FPS. If the GPU fails to provide this frame rates at 90 FPS, it will cause a stuttering, strain eyes and will cause headaches.
To help improve VR Experience, Nvidia created “Virtual Reality” a software development kit (SDK) for VR headsets. Game developers can take advantage to improve performance, reduces latency.
It includes following technologies:
Multi-Res Shading :
It renders each part of an image at better resolution to match with final image. Maxwell’s multi-projection architecture helps to render multiple resolutions in a single pass
Context Priority: It control overs GPU scheduling to support advance virtual reality features. It help to render new frames while user moving head. This results in a smoother, more responsive experience.
VR SLI: Using multiple Nvidia GTX GPUs, it can accelerate the VR Experience.
Direct Mode: Plug and play support for upcoming virtual reality as soon as they are connected to PC.
Front Buffer Rendering: Lets the GPU to render directly to the front buffer to reduce latency.
With GeForce Experience and GameWorks VR, GeForce GTX delivers the ultimate graphics platform for Virtual Reality.
