    gtx 970 =/= gtx 970m

    If you're talking about laptops, the minimum is higher.

    i want to make sure I understand this. 

    are we still debating that the title of the article is wrong?
    Play anything with minimal spec hardware whether it be VR or not VR,  it usually sucks, unless one enjoys slide shows.
    let me ask again

    are we still debating that the title of the article is wrong?

    1060m is not min. gtx970 is
    Title Smitle

    If you have a game and it says the minimum spec is a gtx-970, gtx-1060, gtx-1080 or a gtx-whatthe fuckever. The game will most likely play like crap within that minimum spec.

    IMHO recommended spec is the minimum to get a satisfactory acceptable game experience. Your milage may very.

    I am taking that as a yes to my question.

    again 1060m is > GTX 970 GTX970 is the min. 1060m is not the min.

    Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

    And laptops don't use the GTX 970 (unless you're using the Razer Core so it'd be an external plugin).

    They use the GTX 970m, which performs worse than the GTX 970 and consequently forces their minimum specs for laptops to shift to a higher GPU in the m line. 1060m in that context actually would be the minimum hardware requirement for the m cards and consequently for laptops.

    Technically, the GTX 980 is the minimum listed there, and that's only for a subset of laptops that are built with desktop GPUs.

    Thats actually misleading on your part. What exactly "minimum" on random PC game means?

    VR ha specific minimum requirements and guaranteed minimum performace that has to be achieved, similar to consoles.

    Due to prohibitive pricing on VR they WILL make that good experience or they will fail its that simple. The key to VR adoption is expanding TAM, without broad TAM they can quit without trying.

    Now, if i were to design a system for vr it would be the smallest possible "box" with the most potential graphical and processing power allowed for its size. Lets think something the size of a PlayStation.

    A portable gaming platform.

    I would agree - if it's intended for VR, why does it need a LCD screen?

    Even a gaming desktop intended for VR needs a monitor other than the headset.

    I'll be honest, I have little to no interest in VR. Because it isn't VR. The only time we are going to get true VR is when we get holodecks like star trek. Everything else is a pale imitation at best. Even the best VR is not going to allow total 3D interaction with every component of the game world. Can I bend down and pick up a rock from the ground all while seeing every tiny movement? Probably not. Can I pick up a glass and drink from it? Can I sit anywhere I want properly (no kneeling unless I choose to but crossed legs, crossed at the knees, hands on the hand rests of the chairs)? Extremely doubtful. It's just another gimmick until the next gimmick comes along.

    I was being facetious but I do suppose there isn't a tag to indicate that.

    You're onto something though. It wouldn't need that large of a screen. A small phone/phablet sized touchscreen would work.

    I like the way Nitth was thinking. The entire idea of trying to make a laptop work for VR is silly. Why not just make a portable gaming appliance that could drive a normal monitor or a VR headset. It could have a small screen as a backup for VR.

    A smart company would have a mobile companion app and the ability to screencast to the TV and stream to twitch or youtube.

    I won't be buying them. They are like everything else, a fad. There is no such thing as real VR until we have something like star trek holodecks where we can do anything we want.

    I agree. The current tech is may be a more immersive experience than the regular set up, which I would say is similar to turning all lights off and it being pitch dark except for the screen of the monitor.

    The star trek variant is that its all around you even when you are not looking.

    Which is kind of what the xbox 1 is doing, by using walls and more than just 1 side. illumiroom*

    Illumiroom will eventually be an extension or at least an addition of hololens.   It isn't confirmed, but in short, everything microsoft has worked towards since the original kinect seems to have a place in future hardware applications.

    Can put your laptop in your backpack for mobile VR  :p
    Then you can walk around using Oculus Rift.

    If you're in the USA, you'll also get the possibility to sue some manufacturer because they neglected their responsibility to warn users that covering both of your eyes while walking may result in colliding with something.
