AMD VR-ready processors

If you’re planning on building a new PC rig specifically for VR gaming in the near future, AMD has finally made picking parts a tad easier with a list CPUs the company suggests for VR gaming. Of course, we’ve known which Intel CPUs were recommended for a while, but those who find themselves on team red can now start planning their necessary upgrades. Here’s the current list of nine CPU models AMD recommends for VR applications, as reported by Forbes:

FX-9590 – 4.7GHz/5.0GHz
FX-9370 – 4.4GHz/4.7GHz
FX-8370 – 4.0GHz/4.3GHz
FX-8350 – 4.0GHz/4.2GHz
FX-6350 – 3.9GHz/4.2GHz
A10-7890K – 4.1GHz/4.3GHz
A10-7870K – 3.9GHz/4.1GHz
Athlon X4 880K – 4.0GHz/4.2GHz
Athlon X4 870L – 3.9GHz/4.1GHz

Of course, this list is only for those planning on building their own PCs to handle VR. If you’re planning on being an early adopter of the Oculus Rift, you can always pick up an Oculus Rift PC bundle later in February.
