    I would rather read about Oculus/HTC confirming that they'll support Adaptive Sync, that would be real win.
    They can be making 2 versions of boards, one for nVidia and one for AMD/intel.
    Or just push nVidia to do little trick and enable Adaptive Sync on capable HW (if any).

    Oculus Ready? Don't you have to be sure there will be interest and games/apps to use first?

    Great news for AMD! We've known AMD has been working hard with Oculus for quite a while, but having Dell team up also is always a good thing! Especially considering the good amount of upcoming games which will support VR! :)

    Played with a TrackIR? Flight sim, tactical shooters, racing games and more. If is good enough and it is priced well enough some people will buy it. Games (but not all) will support it if it is relevent.

    I am looking forward to flying in Star Citizen a Hornet. Have played attack helicopter games a years ago, an AH-64 Apache so the thought of flying with a Oculus both day and night with its helmet mounted display and chain gun turrent tied to the Oculus is not to hard for me to imagine. If it is good enough I will get an Oculus Rift to play Star Citizen but I like low lag and high refresh rates so I may wait for a later version or not get one at all just fly left handed and use my mouse to look around on my 144hz 1ms monitor as I have already been doing.

    For VR games information not under NDA you can follow progress here. :

    However with the competition between VR solutions and no real standards yet it's a big mess IMHO and manufactures are getting developers onboard for their respective launches under NDA. Expect some "news leaks" over the next few months though... ;)

    Pretty sure that isn't a problem...
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_with_Oculus_Rift_support
    Not to mention, 3rd party tools that can be used to sort of emulate a 3D for unsupported games.


    Anyway - I could have sworn AMD partnered with Valve and HTC for the Vive too. Anyone else find it a little bit weird that they're partnering with 2 direct competitors?
