Hello,

Does the oculus rift work with an i7 990x processor (LGA1366) ? Because the Oculus Compatibility Tool say no.
But Intel Core i5-4590 @ 3.30GHz bench score is 7234
and Intel Core i7-990X @ 3.47GHz bench score is 9158

best regards

I suppose you need somebody who has tried it - look on the internet and do searches on the forum.  You might not find the exact CPU but one similar in age and spec.

No! Because of single-thread performance

Intel Core i5-4590 @ 3.30GHz => 2,112
Intel Core i7-990X @ 3.47GHz => 1,509

Yes it works, I have same socket CPU on i7 950, tool reports it not compatible but it's more then enough.

It may work, but it may not be the best experience.

Oh look, you answered your own question.

Probably incorrectly  😉

There are many others like it, but this is mine.

Check single thread ratings on passmark, which you already did, and compare to CPU's that are listed as the minimum spec. If it beats those, then you're in good shape. This assumes you have enough USB 3 ports on your PC, but those are easy enough to add if you don't.
