Virtual reality is being pushed by multiple companies with numerous headsets in the works, but just how ready are you to push through into more advanced technology? Valve has published a new tool on Steam that will run some checks and let you know just what to expect from your rig. Prepare to either have your ego well and truly boosted or smashed through the floor with your graphics card being shunned.
The app itself is fairly simple. Valve will detect your current hardware, run through a Portal 2-themed test that will push your components to their limits and see just how ready your PC is. Should you have a bottleneck somewhere, the app itself will alert you as to whether that AMD FX-4100 is in dire need of upgrading should you wish to strap a headset to your skull and immerse yourself in the world of gaming.
