Could I run oculus rift s on my Geforce gtx 1050 laptop?

Hello. Recently, I became interested in oculus rift. However, I was disappointed when I read that he needs at least gtx 1050ti. Would I be able to start the game in any way and if so, in what frames would it go?

My specification:

CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ 2.50Ghz

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 1050 4GB


 RAM: 8GB

I remind you that this is a laptop!

    I kinda doubt your laptop (which you do not specify) has a proper mini DP so quit dreaming mate. Even if it did your performance would be sub-marginal at best because laptop gpu's do not pack the same punch as desktop's. 

    Either get a much better PC (preferably a desktop) or go for a Quest standalone imho.

    Yeah...that would be a pretty terrible experience on a Rift S.  What don't you like about the Quest?

    Make sure whatever you buy, if you want it to run a Rift or Rift S that it is sold as 'VR Ready'.  with a display port.

    Well my PC has a 1050ti and it runs decently.
    Though games like half-life alyx (which I do not have) would probably make my computer self-combust.

    It might get it a bit warm, but the scaling used by the game appears to be exceptionally good from what others are saying.
    Wait for a steam sale and give Alyx a go...  Or wait for a review from someone who has the same :)
