VRFocus revealed yesterday that Atomic VR which develops custom virtual reality (VR) software and hardware solutions, will be at PAX Prime this weekend at the Asus booth to showcase its tethered and un-tethered wearable VR gear alongside new VR title Ninja Trainer – Fruitilicious PAX Edition. What Atomic VR has also revealed via its PAX website are specifications for its HTC Vive demo setup.

As of yet HTC and Valve haven’t mentioned any PC spec details to run the HTC Vive head-mounted display (HMD). Unlike the Oculus Rift development kit which has been freely open for anyone to purchase, the HTC Vive has only been available to developers that signup through Steam. HTC have said details on specs and the consumer version will be revealed in October, but the Atomic VR spec sheet for PAX Prime gives an interesting glimpse into what the HTC Vive HMD needs to run.

The specifications are as follows:

  •  Intel® CoreTM i7 6700K
  • ASUS Z170-DELUXE Motherboard
  • 32GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 Memory
  • STRIX GeForce® GTXTM 980 Ti Graphics Card
  • Corsair H100i GTX
  • CPU Liquid Cooler
  • Corsair HX1200i
  • 1200 watt PSU
  • HTC VIVE Developer Kit
  • Unity3D Game Engine


Fans wishing to prep their systems ready for the HTC Vive launch later this year will still need to wait till the official release of information in October, but until then Atomic VR’s list gives some handy hints.

VRFocus will be at PAX Prime all weekend reporting on all the latest reveals and announcements from the show.
