There were people that believed that there would be two consumer units, one that was capable of delivering VR to mobile, and another for PC. But Oculus VR has come out and confirmed that the single consumer Rift device will be capable of doing VR on both platforms. Oculus VR CEO, Brendan Iribe told Engadget: "I don't think it's going to require that full Kepler capability. I think we'll be able to deliver on an even earlier chip set than that. I think people will be pretty surprised with what set of devices we're able to make this work on. We are focused on just a few right now, basically just to stay focused so that we can deliver a great experience on a couple devices first. Then over time we'll have that span out."
