  1. AMD VR Ready Processors are select AMD processors that meet or exceed the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive minimum specifications for processors. Other hardware (including graphics cards) and system requirements recommended by Oculus Rift or HTC Vive should also be met in order to operate the applicable HMDs as intended. As VR technology, HMDs and other VR hardware and software evolve and/or become available, these criteria may change without notice. Check with your PC or system manufacturer to confirm VR capabilities. GD-116
  2. Precision Boost Overdrive requires an AMD Ryzen Threadripper, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 , Ryzen 7, or Ryzen 9 processor and a motherboard compatible with one or more of these processors. Because Precision Boost Overdrive enables operation of the processor outside of specifications and in excess of factory settings, use of the feature invalidates the AMD product warranty and may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. GD-135
  3. AMD product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware
