Geforce GTX 1050 Ti VR

  • Hi folks,


    I'm currently using the Geforce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. As far as I know it barely meets the minimum spec for VR. Does anyone have any experience using this graphics card for VR? Will RC8 run smoothly? Thanks for your help!



    Hallo zusammen,


    Hat jemand Erfahrung mit der Geforce GTX 1050 Ti im VR-Betrieb?


    Diese Grafikkarte scheint ja so das untere Limit im Zusammenhang mit VR zu sein. Lohnt sich der Kauf einer VR-Ausrüstung bei dieser Grafikkarte oder läuft der Simulator dann nicht mehr flüssig. Ich wäre für Erfahrungsberichte dankbar.

  • I’ve run rc8 in VR with an oculus rift on my Alienware 17r4 laptop w/i7 7700hq, gtx1060 6Gb, 32Gb ram. It ran ok on low graphics settings but not brilliant. The rated performance of your gtx1050ti is only about 50% of a gtx1060 6Gb gpu so I doubt it will be enough to run rc8 in VR imho. The rc8 4d fields used in VR require a pretty good gaming PC. It would run rc8 fine in non-VR mode though.

Now with new Vive Cosmos VR headset, looking good so far.

  • I us it with my oculus rift s and its fine. iv got 16 gig ram ddr4 ryzen 3 and 4gig gtx 1050 ti and it runs sweat .:)

  • Windiger Willi Photo sceneries do not work properly with VR. Your VR plane ends up ~1.5 m above the runway and you are not able to change views. You need to use 4D field for VR. Buy as good of a gpu card that you can afford. I suggest a gtx1070 or better.


    I'm now running RC8 on a new desktop gaming PC w/ i9 9900k water cooled, gtx1080ti, 32Gb 3000 ram, 1Tb ssd, 4 Tb hdd and with my Oculus Rift cv1 I still need to drop a few settings (esp. shadows) in order to maintain 90fps (my VR headset refresh rate and what you need to avoid motion sickness and stuttering/image ghosting). Works great and I really luv this RC sim.

    So you are able to maintain at least 80fps with your Rift S (which has a 80hz refresh rate) using 4D flying fields? Sorry but I kinda doubt it's all that sweet, lol! But, heh, as long as you are happy that's great imho.
