The Rift finally arrived and I got it all set up last night.
Pretty cool. Hooked it to a nMP 6,1 12 Core and an eGPU GTX1080. Smooth as silk!
Will be trying on a cMP 12 Core soon. I will also use a USB 3 card with that, but try with USB 2.
Nice to see that there are 1 or 2 Macs that are up to the challenge. Tonight I will download "Valkyrie" and try that.
Does anyone know of a good VR benchmark?
I realize it's kind of tough to do, but there must be a way to comnpare, beyond the subjective.
On another note, the "Catatonic" VR movie creeped me out. Definitely more scary than watching a movie on a TV. Turning around to see who was pushing me and discovering that the orderly was gone, and a psycho had replaced him was something. Also enjoyed the demo with the T-Rex attacking.
UPDATE; After several days of testing I can report that it is quite stable and solid on 6,1 nMP.
