Yeah dude and you will play shitty ass looking games with the dated quest mobile hardware. Can you play Alyx without a beefy pc? Another $2000 for you INNIT????
I'm fed up with this mentality that it costs so much for PC. You guys don't ever come participate in discussions on the hardware or even Digital Foundry's build to match console equivalent settings
. All i see is poor fucking technical knowledge. I guess you should really stay on consoles and only plug it via HDMI, that's about the ceiling innit?
Jist of it in case you don't want to click : Half Life Alyx runs on a potato from circa 2016, the most common card seen in Steam hardware survey in the past years, although its share % is shrinking as better cards are out.
I'll re-post what i did yesterday in another thread :
I won't bother to scour ebay for old pascal deals, but, based on Richard's build, i would put a 6700XT in rather than the A770 for way better performances.
It would be overkill
for Half Life Alyx and most PCVR. But at the benefit of console equivalent settings as per Digital Foundry's video (much better than A770).
Could scour ebay for a $75 1060 6GB or a $150 2060 super and save. I'm pretty sure someone better than me could optimize this even further, i didn't bother to look for SSD deals or anything. Same for the older Zen processors, plenty of choice there. Could probably lower power supply power, etc. But my lazy build is not bad, even with the crazy GPU prices.
Quest 2 + AMD build $400+$825 = $1,225
PSVR 2 + PS5 $550+$560 = $1,110
But..What are you really getting with the top visual games (Horizon, RE8) on PS5 is interpolation ghosting since they're running 60fps interpolated to 120 fps. Less than ideal settings too. RE8 modded
, not even official dev support, at medium settings on a 2070 super wipes the floor in visuals with the PS5 version.
Resident Evil Village - Through the Lens face-off: Praydog mod (Quest 2) vs Official (PSVR2)
So a lazy PC build that surpasses Digital Foundry's console equivalent setting experiment will absolutely destroy almost all PCVR games on its path. Doesn't even need foveated rendering with 60→120 fps interpolation or the official Capcom support to surpass it on even Turing.
Go enjoy PSVR 2 for all i care, please do, more the merrier in VR. Stop spreading BULLSHIT about PC prices. Even with crazy GPU market, DF's build is solid alternative. Remove the online costs to play multiplayer and the higher prices on consoles that that different just melted away, without even looking for a deal on components.
