Crafted by experts

Working hand-in-hand with Road to VR, the leading publication dedicated to the consumer virtual reality industry, we have redesigned, reconfigured and re-imagined the Exemplar 2 for the ultimate VR experience.

A comfortable VR experience needs to be powered by a machine capable of rendering virtual scenes at a whopping 2160x1200 resolution in stereoscopic 3D at 90 FPS. If your PC isn’t up to the task, you’ll experience choppy and possibly dizzying performance. But just meeting the minimum bar for smooth gameplay won't result in the best experience. For that, you need to go above and beyond minimum recommended specs, with ample power to render the sharpest possible image while maintaining that critical frame rate.

With the AVA Exemplar 2 Ultimate's significant VR rendering performance, enthusiasts can use techniques like supersampling to greatly enhance image quality through the headset. In some cases, supersampling can so greatly sharpen the virtual view that you might swear you bought a new VR headset with a higher resolution screen (see Road to VR's guides to supersampling on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift).

Top of the line components

Build with top tier components, the Exemplar 2 is configured to crush every virtual reality requirement there is. Upgrade your processor, video card, memory, and more to bring you the most immersive experience on the market. Every AVADirect computer that leaves our facility is backed with a lifetime technical support guarantee and our dedicated our experts are here to help.
