Now this is something you can really overlook, but it greatly affects the way VR is displayed on the headsets if the headset is a PC based VR device, like HTC Vive, HTC Cosmos or Oculus Rift S. All of these require a high end PC to run, but they will also work on a lower then recommended requirements, although it would not look as good. That’s the thing, it’s not just about how it looks, its bout how it makes you feel. VR should be run on a headset that has a 90 Hz refresh rate, and it should run on 60 to 90 FPS, to give you that lifelike feel. If it’s lower than that, it will become jittery and can impact your experience, making you nauseous and dizzy.
As mentioned, a high quality VR experience requires a high quality, state of the art PC. HTC, has a dedicated page recommending PC specs for optimally running their headsets Vive, Vive Pro & Cosmos. They recommend an Intel Core i5 or AMD FX 8350; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon Vega 56; 8 or more GB of RAM.
So just to conclude, these 5 steps will surely help you with NOT feeling nauseous after using VR.
