    NVIDIA is doing this in hopes of simplifying the buying process as many consumers aren't aware of the immense GPU power necessary to deliver a quality VR experience. According to NVIDIA, VR demands "seven times the graphics processing power of traditional 3D games and applications". 

     

    Some of the partners that will be participating in this new program include Alienware, MAINGEAR and MSI with the full list of partners available here. The press release is as follows:

    GeForce GTX VR Ready Designation Marks Technology That Delivers Great Virtual Reality Experiences

    LAS VEGAS, NV - CES -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled a VR-ready program to help gamers navigate their way to great virtual reality experiences.

    The company has partnered with PC and notebook makers and add-in card providers to deliver "GeForce® GTX® VR Ready" systems and graphics cards that deliver an immersive VR gaming experience. The program minimizes confusion regarding which equipment is necessary to play the range of VR games and applications increasingly coming to market.

     

    Delivering a great VR experience demands seven times the graphics processing power of traditional 3D games and applications -- driving framerates above 90 frames per second (fps) for two simultaneous images (one for each eye).1

     

    "For customers, navigating an emerging technology like VR can be daunting," said Jason Paul, general manager of emerging technologies at NVIDIA. "We're working with trusted partners worldwide to simplify the buying process with a GeForce GTX VR Ready badge that will let customers quickly identify PCs or add-in cards that are capable of handling the demands of VR."

     

    NVIDIA® GPUs are at the heart of the VR ecosystem and are powered by the award-winning NVIDIA Maxwell™ graphics architecture, which was created with VR in mind. In addition to powering fast framerates, it includes unique VR features, such as support for NVIDIA Multi-Res Shading, which boosts performance by up to 50 percent while maintaining image quality and reducing latency.2

     

    NVIDIA provides the fastest performance and lowest latency for VR experiences through a combination of its Maxwell-class GTX GPUs, NVIDIA Game Ready Drivers and its software tools for developers, NVIDIA GameWorks™ VR and NVIDIA DesignWorks™ VR.

     

    Support from PC Builders
    The world's leading PC vendors are participating in the GeForce GTX VR Ready program.

    "As trailblazers in gaming and graphics, Alienware and NVIDIA are committed to providing great turnkey VR experiences. The program will guide customers to the products that will delight them. Maxwell-based GPUs are a great match for VR experiences, and cards like the GeForce GTX 970 help Alienware PCs set the industry standard."
    -- Frank Azor, general manager, Alienware

     

    "NVIDIA's GeForce GTX VR Ready program makes VR easy and enjoyable. NVIDIA is helping to lead the industry forward. Its Maxwell-powered graphics cards provide the horsepower and low latency needed for VR. And its GameWorks VR platform provides developers the necessary tools to create the next bestselling VR game of the future."
     -- Wallace Santos, CEO and founder, MAINGEAR

     

    "VR has traditionally been reserved for desktops, but NVIDIA has given notebooks such as the MSI GT72 Dominator and GT80 Titan with GeForce GTX 980 the necessary punch to bring virtual experiences to life while on the go. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX VR Ready badge makes identifying VR capable machines easy and guarantees a fantastic and immersive gaming experience."
     -- Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America, MSI

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!
