Anyone know if the "M" version of the 980 can run Oculus Rift?

Anyone know if the "M" version of the 980 can run Oculus Rift?


According to this forum post, a resounding "Yes"

forums.oculus.com/vie…277

More info on the card:

notebookcheck.net/NVI…tml

Scroll down for FPS benchmarks looks like beast. Unsure on Oculus Rift performance.

Oooh, interesting then! Decent find OP.

this is more like the price to expect from medion with a decent deal, hot!

4.04% TCB = £36

good spec for the price

note is the 4gb ddr5 version not the 8gb featured in posts

Great deal, basically an MSI barebones system with some top spec parts

Heat Added!

Not a bad deal at all for spec 980M good enough for OR could do with a faster processor but at this price impossible atm. However anyone who has a decent laptop bar the graphics card maybe wait for the external graphics card to become available and save some money

we have been waiting for external graphics cards for many years now, and whats the point? makes more sense to get a desktop and a chrome book.

No mobile versions work on the consumer rift. That article is for DK2.

You may get one of the new laptops that have an add on module that contains a desktop gpu, razer are releasing one.

Anything with similar specs but 15 inch or ideally 13 inch laptop ?

Nice to see a 24months warranty. Warranty claims under the SOGA is always a PITA.

​13inch probably wouldn't exist with such a beast of a graphics card. would generate too much heat with i7 quad core. 15 inch good luck trying to find one at this price.

Have been contemplating on a desktop but do no want to be stuck against a wall again. Yes desks can be brought now with clamps to hold a monitor or tv in place but not willing to pay extra for one of them.. Mind you in after saying that your gonna have to have your laptop set up against a wall in order for the space required for OR why didn't I just agree with you in the 1st place

Just what I was looking for. Unfortunately £150 above my self-imposed budget though.

I have a budget of around 1500 and saw the Msi gs60 6qe for 1550 as well but the keyboard layout is weird on that and puts me off

Sorry mate but this is wrong, the Nvidia 980M doesn't meet the minimum requirements. GTX 970 is the minimum requirement for Oculus Rift, and anything less than this is risking it. It's a bit confusing but the 'M' laptop versions of Nvidia cards are a lot less powerful than the desktop versions.

In the link they're talking about the Oculus Rift DK2, which only needs to run at 75fps compared to 90fps in the consumer rift. On top of that the consumer rift has a higher resolution. Oculus are only supporting GTX 970+ on their store, and games developed independently like Elite Dangerous have steeper requirements.

You *might* be okay with the 980M, but with VR the lower framerate is a killer. Constant 75+ fps is needed to trick your brain into believing what you're seeing is real, and if fps gets really bad it's a trip to barf town.

Been glued to HUKD hunting for parts to build a rift rig soon, thought I'd warn anybody considering this.

Are the laptop builds good and reliable? Which model do you recommend? They only have their own custom ones and not other brands although the laptop button at the top isn't working

​pay an extra 600 just to be a few inches smaller? Up to you mate :-)

Really interested in this. Anybody have any experience with Medion before?

​got a convertible tablet from them. quad core pentium 4gb ram etc. Build quality is sturdy plastic, they aren't the most sturdy laptops but generally have adequate cooling. If you look after your laptops you won't have a problem.

This is a brilliant price, but i cannot help thinking that £900.00 would be better spent on a Desktop.

Yes 970M is minimum requirement but your better off having 980M it will last longer in terms of in need of upgrade as regards what unit do I recommend. Personally none atm would like to wait till the OR is shipped out or available to order before and seeing if prices come down

This is a cracking price! I got an XMG P505 (Clevo P651SE barebones) with a GTX970m GPU for nearly £1100 in May last year. The GTX 980m is quite a bit faster.

I challenge you to build a PC with the same performance as this laptop (you need an i5 CPU and a GTX 960/R9 280x GPU), FHD Monitor, keyboard, wi-fi, bluetooth, webcam, speakers, Windows licence and also buy a Chromebook for this price. Also - there have been attempts at incorporating external GPUs in notebooks (see Razer Stealth) but the current solutions are just too expensive to be feasible really.

​Absoloutely. Proper i7 quad core.

Crazy good spec for the price considering it's brand new and with warranty.

I am not sure why people buy performance laptop but I will tell you why I bought one as opposed to a desktop - I rent in London and usually move to a different place every few months. Also - believe it or not - the places I live in NEVER have enough space for a good sized desk (required for a desktop).

This said, I will most likely go for a desktop once I manage to buy a house/apartment.

I have the MSi GS60 6QE (1080p), 4k pointless on 15", This laptop is really nice, the only things I don't like are the speakers (I bought a portable Bluetooth though so easily fixed) and the fans can get noisy (doesn't really bother me but It will others), but really that is to be expected in such a thin lightweight laptop and I think there is a 3rd party piece of software that you can make them quieter or off when idle and honestly the 970m is really good I didn't think it would be as I always want the best GPU. The msi also has a skylake CPU so...

I would get the msi over this just for the portability and it will still have higher resale value in a few years than this due to the size. Feel free to ask any other questions.

But, it is possible to buy both... I still have my gaming pc and laptop for when I'm not at home and still want to do other things on my laptop, not just games but things like CAD which require a lot of power, so I don't see why that is weird.

​I second that. I had the Octane II from PC Specialist with the 980m. Ive been a gamer for years and having kids meant losing a spare room that was once mine

I will always buy from them in the future they are fantastic.
