Oculus Rift will only favor high end gaming rig


Have a powerful Mac Pro and expect to have fun with Oculus Rift?

Sorry, it will not happen at least for now.

Palmer, Oculus CEO has been repeated in multiple occasions that Apple’s Mac is too weak to handle Oculus Rift.

One may argue: “Hey! my Mac Pro is worth more than $8000” However, even a beast like this does not meet Oculus’ hardware requirement.

What exactly is it missing? A top of the line gaming graphic card.

Oculus recommend minimum i5 4590 prcessor, 8GB RAM and Nvidia GTX 970 graphic card. CPU and RAM can be matched easily by  Mac Pro or even iMAc. However, the GTX970 graphic card, at this time, Apple has no compatible/equivalent graphic card option yet.
