Oculus has presented a new set of minimum functions required for its operation Rift headset, making it compatible with many cheaper computers than ever before.

The first of these will cost $499 AMD-powered PC from CyberPowerPC. It is not clear when it will be released, but the company said it will in the near future. Previously, the minimum price of VR-ready computer closer to $800, with many of the cost is much more than that.

In addition, Iribe said that there has a VR-ready notebooks from four different manufacturers: Asus, Lenovo, AORUS and Gigabyte. CEO predicts this list will grow to include “hundreds” of laptops in the next few years.
