ma rift does not work. The screen stays black and the LED yellow.
I have to admit that my specs are very low: A GTX 580 and an I7 860 CPU.
But can this be really the reason that the CV1 does not work ?
To my technical understanding this makes no sense.
It’s like saying “Well, this computer is too slow so no wonder the monitor
shows no picture.”
The GTX 580 supports HDMI 1.4a, this is above the demand of HDMI 1.3 by the
rift. The same applies to the maximum resolution of the GTX 580 of 2560 x 1600
vs. the specs of the CV1 (2160 x 1200).
Whether the system if fast enough for sufficient frame rates is a
completely different question. But it is at least capable to show a
I am not going to buy a completely new computer system just to realize that
this was not the problem. This is not less a matter of money than a matter of

I am planning to buy a new graphics card but have not yet decided which one
to buy. And if the oculus still does not work with the new graphics card the the support will probably tell me “It’s the CPU”.
Unfortunately I have no idea at the moment where to find a computer meeting
the specs to test this out.
But the “the display does not work because the computer is too slow” just
makes no sense to me at all.
What is your opinion / experience ?
