Re: Laptop compatibility with HTC Vive

Thanks John. I saw the minimum specs for Vive. Do you know of anyone who is using this model of laptop that is working fine with Vive ? This model only uses GeForce GTX 1060 with 3GB GDDR5. Is it enough to run Vive ? Also they have a HDMI Port of 1x (4K @ 30Hz). Is it enough to run Vive ? Please advise. Sorry for asking too many questions. I want to be very sure before buying the laptop. I am buying the laptop just for Vive. Thanks

I can't speak specifically to that model but I have a MSI GE72VR that runs the same (or very similar) 3gb 1060 chipset and it preforms pretty well with Vive.
