Consumer solutions FAQs

How does virtual reality work? 
Virtual reality immerses you in lifelike visual experiences. The technology essentially replaces your surroundings with a software-designed world — with computer vision and advanced graphics building realistic 3D imagery and videos. To engage with the VR world, you use a VR headset equipped with lenses, controllers and sensors. The sensors allow you to fully experience immersive VR.
How much memory and storage does a VR headset use?
To ensure a glitch-free, seamless experience, most VR headsets require 8GB to 16GB of RAM and to a baseline of 128GB of storage.
How much memory do handheld gaming consoles have?
The required RAM varies, based on the specific games you want to play. The highest-performing gaming consoles have 16GB of RAM, so you’ll want to match with 16GB of RAM in your gaming PC. No matter your platform of choice, lightning fast speeds are needed to create seamless, immersive experiences. 
What does memory do in a handheld gaming console?
Having enough RAM ensures you a smooth gaming experience. Having too little RAM leads to lagging frame rates or overall poor performance. Game developers typically suggest RAM capacity, and as these uses grow, it’s wise to factor in your future RAM needs.
How does memory and storage work in streaming services?
When you stream media, your device retrieves data in real-time as you watch it. That means sufficient memory and storage are critical. Streaming video is buffered to RAM or to your storage SSD. If the RAM is full, the data goes to your storage and then back to RAM, so both memory and storage are crucial elements of successful streaming.
Do home automation systems require memory and storage?
Today’s smart homes make it easier than ever to automate everything, from lighting and climate to entertainment and appliances. They feature remote programming, voice control, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more — all of which require low-power memory and storage optimized for always-on devices. Memory and storage provide the necessary densities and reliability to power and store sensor data and user preferences.
