VR with a kind of low-end PC.

Your PC isn't going to 'blow up', it'll just be a bad experience. The effect of VR is only convincing when you have a smooth-ish framerate. On Radeon Integrated Graphics, all it'll do is make you want to throw up. 

VR on a bad PC?

  1. 1. So I was thinking to buy an Oculus Quest 2 and playing it with my PC. I have a Ryzen 3 4000G with AMD Integrated Graphics. Is it a good idea? Or is it gonna be a framerate chaos?

    • Yes, your PC is gonna blow up.
    • No, it's gonna be a great experience.

3400G iGPU will not work well at all.

 

Quest 2 is standalone though, I'd recommend just using it like that.

It’s not going to perform well. The Ryzen integrated graphics are about as powerful as a GT 1030 for reference.

with just an igpu, it will make you throw up very quickly, if it works at all lol.

I mean it's not gonna blow up but it's gonna be far from a pleasurable experience. you probably won't ever get more than 60fps and experience some nausea

What?

 

Quest 2 is fine standalone just like Quest 1 was (I've used the OG Quest standalone).

Your PC isn't going to 'blow up', it'll just be a bad experience. The effect of VR is only convincing when you have a smooth-ish framerate. On Radeon Integrated Graphics, all it'll do is make you want to throw up. 

My System: 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT • Noctua NH-D15 • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk • 2x8GB G.skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 • MSI VENTUS 3X GeForce RTX 3070 OC •  Samsung 970 Evo 1TB • Samsung 860 Evo 1TB • Cosair iCUE 465X RGB • Corsair RMx 750W (White) • ASUS VG27AQ • Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum • Logitech G502 Hero

 

Got any questions about my system or peripherals? Feel free to tag me (@bellabichon) and I'll be happy to give you my two cents.

With vr you cannot get away with  low framerates(30 fps for example),as this will cause an nauseating effect and a very bad experience.

Get an GPU first then consider vr.

 

I love Vega igpu's but its not meant for vr AT ALL.

The quest 2 offers a pretty decent standalone experience, you dont need to connect it to a pc. 

 

That said, pc games will obviously look better if you have the hardware to run them.

30FPS is alright, a graphics card is expensive though. What's your reccomendation? (cheapest and best)

 

Edit: I just did a stress test, and I only got 5FPS max..

 

The picturethat you see here is the result of my Graphics strees test. I only got 11FPS. (Without antialiasing and running at HD).

30 FPS is alright,but absolutely not in VR.

The lowspecgamer did a video on trying to run vr on VEGA and it worked!But just barely and he absolutely did not reccomend.

If the cheapest vr headset is  $300 then you could use that money to get a GPU.

 

For GPU i reccomend something in the rx 570-580 or gtx 1060-1070 range of performance since those GPU's are what i would say vr ready somewhat in the budget range.

I managed to find a rx 580 for $150 but i was extremely lucky,you could probably find one for at about 200-220.

You can now get the quest 2 up to 90hz too on some apps in standalone.
