Hi people,

 

Im looking to purchase the Vive Pro, when i ran the compatbility test on my Alienware laptop. The results states that my Intel i7-7700hq is not powerful enough to run Vive.

But i saw the minumum specs was the i5.

so im a little confuse. I dont wish to invest on a $900 system if it doesnt work on my laptop.

 

any advise?

The i7-7700 is supported. We'll look into why this is giving a false negative.

 

In general, these kinds of compatiblity tests rely on data that the computer's BIOS communicates into Windows; there is a huge variation in how OEMs integrate chipsets which can impact how windows sees and reports the hardware to the compatibility checker.

To anybody else who may be reading this and feels like they've gotten a false negative, feel free to post here along with some basic info about the component in question and we'll evaulate the result.

I hope that you are doing well today and was wondering what kind of RAM you are running and how any GB you have available for you graphics output? I understand that the minimum requirements for a processor is an I5 intel, although there are a number of other specifications to connect to a Vitual Platform. I will try and help get you up to speed if your laptop can be upgraded if not already up to par.

 

Maybe
