#Facebook announces $399 Oculus Rift S to launch in spring
After three years, Facebook-owned Oculus is finally replacing the original Rift VR headset for PC with the Rift S coming out in the spring.
Minimum PC requirements for the Rift S isn't too different from the Rift, either. Oculus recommends your rig run Windows 10 (duh) and have at least an Intel i5-4590 or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X processor, NVIDIA GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics or better (an NVIDIA GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 will work tho, but performance may suffer), and 8GB of RAM.
Your PC will also need a DisplayPort 1.2 or a Mini DisplayPort and a USB 3.0 port for the Rift S headset to plug into.
Of course, a VR headset is nothing without content. Along with the headset, Oculus also announced at GDC a handful of new games coming to the Rift S, including Asgard's Wrath, Stormland, and Vacation Simulator
The Rift S is also equipped with five Insight sensors — similar to the ones inside of the standalone Oculus Quest— to enable 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) "inside-out" tracking, which work to detect your head, track the included wireless Touch controllers, and power Guardian, the virtual barrier that prevents you from bumping into your walls or furniture.With the Rift S and the Quest both launching this spring, it's clear Oculus is using it as an opportunity to unify its PC-based VR headset and standalone VR headset.
