Can an AMD FX8320 run Oculus Rift?

This was a question I’ve been asking a lot since I got my desktop last year, and after this weekend I can finally provide a definitive answer: Yes. At least, that’s the case for me, with a liquid cooled 8320 overclocked to 4.0GHz. I’ve been messing around with Oculus this weekend and it’s been a flawless experience on my PC. I’ve played SUPERHOT VR, Rec Room, Robo Recall, Fruit Ninja VR and Project Cars VR, and all ran perfectly. I just wanted to throw an answer to this question out there, because leading up to my Rift purchase the most I could find on Google were answers that sounded like more of a “maybe” than a definitive yes.

I’ll be writing more about my first real VR experience soon.

My specs, if you’re curious:

MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition (2 USB 3.1, 6 USB 2.0)
AMD FX8320 (OC 4.0GHz)
Corsair Hydro Series H55 120mm liquid cooler
Nvidia GTX 1060 Founders Edition
16GB 1866 G.SKILL Ripjaws X
