No. They rip through all modern games like there is no tomorrow. So when it comes down to things, AMD is more than VR certified. It's just too bad for Oculus, when I buy into VR it'll be with the Vive (it always was going to be anyway). It's just solidified now. Hurts for them, doesn't it? I sure hope it does.
I never said they were slow. They aren't. They, however, aren't fast enough for the intended application of high end VR experiences. Every frame must be delivered in 11.11ms or faster. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Even Intel CPUs struggle with that too on occasions. I honestly think even the intended minimum requirement rigs that Oculus says won't be good enough unless you really want to turn settings down. But Intel at least does have actual CPUs that will hit that minimum for pretty much every game out there. AMD doesn't barring the rare highly-threaded games. This isn't fanboying a single thing. This is just being realistic. When Zen comes out, AMD will most likely, barring a dud, hit the requirements for VR. But their current CPUs just really do not cut it. You are talking about somewhat lower resolution scenarios at the moment, at very high refresh rate. In other words, highly CPU bound scenarios. Barring the few highly threaded games that will fully take advantage of current AMD hardware, they just cannot produce the same VR experience as reliably as Intel's CPUs.
I mean, you are calling me a fanboy. But you are basing your HMD purchase because you fanboy one company over the other. Ironically you are talking to someone who uses both AMD and Intel (and heck, even Nvidia) in the same household. However, I'm just more realistic about things without having red/blue/green tinted shades over my eyes (I like calibration and all colors, don't throw that off!).
