So, they have started shipping. We unfortunately got an email saying that ours has been delayed but that we should get an update on April 12th. Really excited to see how it does on the 12 Core cMP with a Titian-X and then also curious how it will run on the 12 Core nMP with an eGPU Titan-X.
Has anyone gotten theirs and run it on Mac hardware? The Oculus folks had some rather disparging comments about there being no decent Apple machines to run it on, let's prove them wrong, even if Apple won't.
Here is what they sent me:
We know you're anxious to receive your Oculus Rift and apologize for not updating your order status sooner. We've been working through an unexpected component shortage, and unfortunately, that issue has impacted the original shipping estimates for some early customers.
We're working hard to get up-to-date ship windows, and you should expect to see your order status updated on oculus.com by Tuesday, April 12. Although many Rifts will be arriving on schedule and in line with original estimates, we'll be covering shipping and handling costs for all orders placed through today.
We're shipping rifts everyday. Don't hesitate to reach out to the Oculus support team if you have additional questions.
