System requirements

The following environments have been confirmed for running Zen (→What is Zwin?).


Operating System

Supported operating systems are:

  • Ubuntu22.04 LTS
  • Arch Linux


Unlike typical PCVR, a high-powered GPU is not required on the PC.
This is because the headset handles rendering in Zwin (→Rendering Scheme)

The PC's GPU must support OpenGL ES 3.2. The following laptop PCs have been confirmed for operation:

  • Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen2
    • CPU: 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1165G7 @ 2.80 GHz
    • GPU: TigerLake-LP GT2 [Iris Xe Graphics]

Wired Connection

Currently, Zwin requires a fast USB cable to reliably send the texture of windows between the PC and headset. Although wireless support is in development, wired connection is currently recommended due to several issues (→Roadmap).

  • A port faster than USB3.0 is recommended on the PC side.
  • A high-quality cable with enough power supply is required.
    • Meta's certified cable is the most recommended.
    • Although it is possible to use a low-quality cable, problems such as slow movement of Ray when opening multiple windows may occur.

VR Headsets

Compatible with the following headsets:

  • Meta Quest 2
  • Meta Quest Pro

Although Quest 1 can also be used, it is not recommended due to rendering performance issues.
