Oculus founder says Apple needs to "launch a good computer" to support VR [atualizado]

Those who follow the world of virtual reality glasses have known for a while that, at least initially, the Oculus rift not support Macs.

In an interview for the Shacknews, the founder of Oculus, Palmer Luckey, said his company will only offer this support when Apple "launches a good computer."

According to Luckey, Apple doesn't make a good choice of GPUs (graphics processing units, or graphic processing units). Even a Mac Pro, customized with an AMD FirePro D700, would still not supposedly fall within the specifications recommended by Oculus.

Oculus recommends at least NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 cards for proper operation.

Luckey posted a certain kind of "clarification" on Twitter:

He said he loved Apple computers, even citing that he uses a MacBook Pro. But he understands that so far first-class GPUs were more intended for gamers It is a small portion of corporate users.

The executive believes VR will encourage manufacturers like Apple to adopt more powerful GPUs on computers as a whole, even benefiting users who wouldn't need them.
