  1. 1. Oculus Rift and DCS World Discussion

    • 599$ did not faze you, and YOU PRE-ORDER IT!
    • 599$ puts me into bankrupcy - I will not spend that kind of money - WILL NOT BUY
    • on the fence, will BUY LATER (at retail launch)

Then you have the "i Want it now" people that pay a premium to get something asap, auction ended last night on a CV1 at $1785 + $40 Shipping, You can Get 3 for that amount.

 

One Guy on Gaming Channel Sold his CV1 for $1300 ish on ebay, and went online and pre-ordered 2 more, his reason was, by time they ship he'll have Pascal GPUs, lol

 

Blimey!!......that's nuts!

 

Hopefully this is on topic?......

 

I'm looking at getting a CV1 and I went on the Oculus web site and ran their system checker. It came up with my CPU isn't good enough!? now does this mean either a CPU change or a new rig? my specs are below in my sig. What do you guy's think?

Don't be surprised if your comment is moderated. This thread is to discuss the Rift in DCS. It is not a support forum for the Rift recommended system requirements... Nor should people be discussing eBay prices with that policy in mind. I guess some slip through the net.

 

I think you'd get away with it. Unless you need multi core performance though I'd switch to a 6700k (or equivalent at time of upgrade) to save a lot of money and have the current gen architecture. As you're probably aware... most gaming applications are still heavily influenced by a single thread so the 6 cores won't be doing you any favours for Rift (yet) which is perhaps why it's flagged.

Actually I took his comments to be asking if his system would be good enough for Rift and running DCS World, I know he is a DCS World player, so makes sense... in that case of course that is on topic here.

Their Compatibility Tool is Super Strict, Like Extremely Strict.

 

I ran Rift, the demos, and DCS on my Server box the last week,

 

The Server Box is a PhenomII 2 Core CPU at 2.4GHz, an Underclocked AMD 7950 GPU,. and 16GB of Ram, Server box's function is a small media server for my network (TV and Movies)

 

It's Choppy, but it works for the demos and smaller games, DCS I had to drop everything to lowest to get 30 fps, but I dont have Hotas on the server box, so It's pointless, I just wanted to checkout the demo's and stuff while I waited for adapters to ship for my gaming rig.

 

On that note, the MAJOR Issue that alot of people are runnning into is USB3 controllers,

ASMedia and Eltron are extremely problematic, Eltron USB3 drivers will blue screen your system either immediately after you plug in the HMD, or it will lock up the driver and you're system's USB3 ports will no longer detect devices as they are attached or removed, and eventually blue screen when the driver times out.

 

 

If you want to see how DCS Will do in VR (as a general rule of thumb, as some stuff can't be simulated w/o the actual runtime and HMD).

 

Run DCS in Stereo Mode.

^^What Zilla said, it is beyond strict.

 

I'd say you'd be fine. My specs are below and OR's system thing flagged my CPU. I'd suggest DL the SteamVR test and let the render play. That test showed this:

As I Posted Previously, w/ SteamVR:

 

w/ 1 7970 GPU, SteamVR Said I was "capable", w/ 2 I was in the lower section of "Ready", w/ 3 GPUs I was peggged to the edge of "Ready",

 

The Rendered Frames was a difference of about 700 Frames. so the 2nd GPU didnt do much but add maybe a lil less than 10% more Frames Rendered, the 3rd added another 500 or so, however the quality of the rendering increased.

1 GPU: 9,007 Frames (Med/Low Quality)

2 GPU: 9,717 Frames (High Quality)

3 GPU: 10,020 Frames (Very high Quality)

 

Also, AFAIK,. the Oculus Runtime Does not Support SLi, Crossfire, or nVidia Optimus (GPU Switching).

 

Here's to hoping Oculus themselves integrate Per Eye/SplitScreen/Side By Side multi-gpu rendering.

 

DX11 Supports it, so It's a matter of integrating into the Actual Oculus SDK and Runtime.

 

Not sure if DCS will Run Multi-GPU direct to Rift, Will check my GPU's This weekend. (Adapter was Left in my Mailbox a Day early, but I am working long shifts the next 2 days)

 

So the Biggest Beefiest Single GPU is Recommended, along with a CPU w/ Single Thread/IPC Hgih Enough to Manage and Process the Doubled Up DirectX 11 Commands.

 

Once Both Manufacturers release their new GPU's this summer, I'll hit up clearance to upgrade to a Fury or FuryX Likely, as the HBM will greatly help w/ VR.

My PC scored an 11 on the Vive test and passed the Oculus test as well, but there are still times when in DCS that the frames get bogged down to < 40 over dense "urban" areas.

 

I wonder if implementing SLI and Multi/Hyperthreading could help!

Pretty sure both tests are generic and actually state per application performance may vary.

This is another fantastic review again seems Oculus is more refined if the two companies came together they could make one amazing headset with all the features of both.

- Yes, hence another reason to support a VR subforum

- I'd fear then, that TrackIR people would want one, too...then we'd have cats and dogs living together in no time...

 

I'm just happy to have DCS working with the Oculus v1.3 runtimes. It's really great to have it, and gives such a wonderful user experience. I look forward to the improvements as they come!

 

Happy flying! :pilotfly:

Thanks SiTh.....yes, my CV1 would be used exclusively for DCS.

 

Cheers guy's, some really good answers here, thanks a lot.

 

EDIT

 

I just ran the Steam VR test and all checks out :)

 

However I will have to upgrade and install more USB 3.0 ports as I only have 3 at the moment.

 

and another issue...

 

Their Compatibility Tool is Super Strict, Like Extremely Strict.

 

On that note, the MAJOR Issue that alot of people are runnning into is USB3 controllers,

ASMedia and Eltron are extremely problematic, Eltron USB3 drivers will blue screen your system either immediately after you plug in the HMD, or it will lock up the driver and you're system's USB3 ports will no longer detect devices as they are attached or removed, and eventually blue screen when the driver times out.

 

When I ran the test on the OR site it also flagged up about my USB's it's response was.....

"Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller"

 

now I'm not sure what this is but if I added an extra PCI-E USB card to get some extra USB ports, would this eliminate the issue?

 

Excuse my ignorance on PC hardware, I can get by on the usual stuff but this is getting a bit cloudy now!!
