Still interested in getting into VR, but don’t know what PC to buy? Syber Gaming’s new series of rigs could be for you.
The company has this week revealed the M Series, consisting of four mid-tower Windows 10 PCs that offer enough power to fuel experiences for both of the main PC-based VR headsets, the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The four models span a wide range of prices, starting at $799 for a Core model that offers an AMD Radeon RX 480 GPU and 8GB of RAM.
Moving up from there you have the Pro model, with offers an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 card for $1,129. The Elite model boosts that to a GTX 1070 card for $1,399, while the Ultimate model boasts a GTX 1080 card and 16GB of RAM for $1,899. In other words, if you want the best performance and visual fidelity out of your VR games then Ultimate is the way to go, but any of these models will be able to actually play the games currently available for Rift and Vive.
We could continue listing off the specs of each, but Syber Gaming has provided a helpful table to let you compare the different models quickly, which we’ve included below. Each model can be custom configured to support your needs, too. The rigs are available to pre-order now, and will be available at GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon as well as Syber Gaming owner, Cyberpower PC. Shipping is estimated to begin in two week’s time on August 26th.
Syber Gaming’s PCs join rigs from a long line of manufacturers that are pledging support for VR headsets. You can also look for machines in Oculus VR’s own Oculus Ready PCs line, including products from partners like DELL and Alienware, while HTC is rumored to be partnering with HP to soon offer its very own Vive-branded devices.
