Ahhh, I see. Hmm, if your workplace needs to borrow money off you to pay for it's stock, it might be worth checking your CV is up to date.

Give the steam vr performance thing a try.

That's better than I expected.

That's fine. SteamVR seems to be a bit more stringent than Oculus requirements.

I'm surprised it thinks my 2008-era CPU is OK, though. I should probably benchmark it against a modern i7. It's sufficiently obscure that it's not very easy to find comparable numbers for.

Yeah, I just dug out some CPUMark comparing it to the i5-6600 which was the same result: a little over half the speed.

Superhot VR is a bit fucking great, innit?

It's on my wishlist, waiting for it to be a bit cheaper.


Jesus, I've just watched this and I'm sorely tempted to splash some cash on VR.

Oh and there's that robot shooter too, where you grab the heads and shit. Bloody hell there's some great looking VR titles that're making my bum twitch.

Superhot and Robo Recall are easily some of the most fun I've had in games, ever. I'm shit at Robo Recall, though.
