Hello guys, i have a amd r9 380 black plate with 4gb and i want to buy the oculus. I wanna know if i buy it i must change my gpu to connect or i can play with low grafics. If i am right r9 290 is weak against r9 380 but l am scared for connection.

    Sorry, that card is below the requirements. It may still work, but it will likely be a sub-par experience. You may want to to consider running the Oculus Compatibility Tool and updating your system if anything fails.

    I have the same. R9 380 and I can play all games perfectly. Lone Echo, RoboRecall, Unspoken, Batman...
    Medium to High grafics... and I have 8gb RAM and my processor is AMD FX 8350

    Can you still get the oculus to run with a Radeon R9 380?

    Wait, is an R9 380  less powerful than an R9 290X???   If so, then I really don't understand the naming scheme of graphics cards, lol.
    Tips for fixing / reducing Rift-S issues:
    • Make sure your graphics drivers and windows updates are completely up-to-date.
    • Disable USB power saving on any ports you'll be plugging Rift-S into.
    • Access Windows "Power and Sleep" settings, Advanced Settings, and disable any other automatic power-saving.
    • Be patient for fixes from Oculus.
