Oculus Rift has a resolution of 1080 × 1200 with a single lens and is designed to operate with a screen resolution of 2160 × 1200 at a refresh rate of 90 Hz with both eyes combined. In the general 1920 × 1080 full HD resolution, the refresh rate 60 Hz image changes the number of 124,461,600 pixels per second, whereas in Oculus Rift it needs to change 233.28 million pixels nearly twice that there is. According to Technical Director Artman Binstock, in the default state, processing is performed at about 400 million pixels per second, and since this rendering cost corresponds to about 3 times processing of 1080p, relatively high Performance GPU and CPU are required.

In the past, Oculus Rift was developed by Mac OS and Linux, but in order to deliver higher quality VR experiences to users, the development environment has been focused on Windows OS. "I want to resume development on OS X and Linux, but there is no specific time schedule so far," says Binstock.

Oculus Rift is scheduled to be marketed in Q1 (January to March) in 2016.
