Why do I need such a powerful computer to use VR?

Virtual and mixed reality headsets can either be tethered to a computer or untethered. In the case of untethered devices, VR users can walk around freely without being attached to a computer. However, this comes with the caveat of significantly lower-quality graphics and visual fidelity.

Varjo headsets have a best-in-class resolution (measured in pixels per degree) and refresh rate, allowing VR and XR to be experienced in photorealistic quality. To run virtual and mixed reality content with that level of quality, a high-performance Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) and Central Processing Unit (CPU) are needed so the VR and XR experience is flawless and without jitters and frame drops.

Varjo headsets are compatible with a broad range of PCs, laptops, and workstations with NVIDIA GPUs. We partner with dozens of industry-leading manufacturers to test and certify their computers for optimal performance. Varjo’s VR and XR devices can also be used together with Varjo Reality Cloud, our immersive streaming solution, which can lower the local computing requirements needed to power highest-fidelity immersive experiences.
