    Let's talk about specs, baby!

    Before buying a VR gaming laptop, it's necessary to consider its specifications. Playing games on a VR headset for a laptop might strain the processor and graphics card, so the device must be equipped with GPU that can handle the virtual reality features, such as 360 view, 120fps rendering, and high-resolution image. It's also important to make sure that the device features the necessary amount of ports in order to connect the headset and enjoy gaming in virtual reality.

    To play VR games comfortably, the player should aim for the higher-end devices, such as the ones with built-in Intel Core i7 - i9 chips and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. They provide the processing power and highest quality GPUs. Laptops equipped with these GPUs will run VR games no problem. Experts note that the best performance in VR games for a laptop can be achieved with NVIDIA GeForce 20-series or Max-Q. They offer the best quality of image and performance out of the currently available laptops.

    Another GPU offering the best performance of VR games is AMD Radeon. Offering performance on par with that of NVIDIA's, AMD will suit the needs of players demanding high-quality graphics and smooth performance of VR games. For the best experience, players should search for laptops equipped with Radeon RX 480 for base-level and RX 5500 for high-end performance.

    Both NVIDIA and AMD GPU-equipped laptops will cost the player a hefty sum. Depending on the model of the GPU, the price point may start at as high as $1000. Prices only go up from there, so buyers should consider their choice very carefully before making a decision.
