What hardware do I need to use Trezi?

Hardware Requirements - VR mode

Listed here is the hardware required to run Trezi. Please note that using an unsupported hardware configuration may result in poor performance of the application and is strongly advised against. If you have an existing PC that you want to use for Trezi, we recommend cross-checking the readiness of your hardware for VR using the compatibility check tool from Oculus or SteamVR Performance Test. Both of these will let you know if your hardware is capable enough and if any upgrades are required.
Please note that Trezi has much higher requirements that consumer-grade VR, and our recommendation is to get the best performing GPU possible for your configuration to get the most out of Trezi. You can refer to Passmark's GPU benchmark results for a relative comparison of various GPU models.
If you are planning to use HTC Vive Pro, please get a top-end GPU as the Vive Pro has a much higher resolution display.
