Hello ckend2,

 

Thank you for posting on this Intel Community.

 

Most Intel® Core™ Desktop 8th Gen Processors support Virtual Reality (VR). 

 

Intel® Processors  Intel® Core™ Processor Family > Features and Performance

 

Also, according to NVIDIA's Virtual Reality system requirements, your system meets the CPU requirements since you are using an Intel® Core™ i7-8700K Processor.

 

Desktop requirements > Intel® Core™ i5-4590 Processor or greater.

 

Have you tried running a game for testing purposes?

Hello ckend2,

 

Let me clarify that most Intel® Core™ Desktop 8th Gen Processors support Virtual Reality (VR) if a discrete graphics card that support this technology is also installed on the system. In other words, it is not possible to enable this technology using the onboard graphics of the processor.

 

Our recommendation is that you can contact NVIDIA* to check if there is an issue with the VR configuration. It does not seem that the processor is faulty.

 

Now, you may also run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool to check the health of the processor.
