VR stands for ‘Virtual Reality’ - that is, the use of technology to create a simulation convincing enough that it seems like the real world, without necessarily being realistic.
Modern virtual reality is only possible because of the fantastic advances in computer and display technology. The graphics of modern computers mingles with high resolution, miniaturized screens and an array of weird bespoke technologies to produce something unique.
Seeing is believing.
You’ve never experienced anything as immersive as VR. Each simulation is utterly convincing, because of the graphical tricks played by the custom headsets.
Virtual Reality headsets constantly render two different images, one for each eye. These images are both high definition, running at 1080 x 1200, and extremely rapid, projected at 60-90 frames per second. This requires huge computational power.
It’s not just a headset. The true VR sets utilise multiple cameras and sensors to track your head and body movement, without the delays that cause motion sickness in old, inferior systems.
If you want to experience the futuristic level of immersion today, you need a powerful PC - a mobile phone or slow console just isn’t going to cut it. To avoid nausea, visible pixels and disorientation, and to run the most impressive applications and games VR has to offer, your only option is a PC-based system.

VR requires a lot of computational power. Crucially, you can’t skimp on the graphics card - many of today’s most powerful cards barely reach the minimum specifications of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. SAPPHIRE has a range of cards that are fully VR-ready, so you can embark on virtual adventures knowing that your experience will be smooth, wonderfully immersive and entirely stress free.
