Zotac has revealed a new VR-ready PC which features straps, making it wearable as a backpack. The Zotac VR Go is a powerful PC with hot-swappable batteries for virtual reality gaming unencumbered by trailing wires. Remove the straps, and the VR Go can also be used as a desktop PC.
According to AnandTech, the VR Go has an Intel Core i7 processor, GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, removable battery, a 2.5-inch drive bay for SSD or HDD, an HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports, and a proprietary cooling system, plus a power connector for wired use.
“[T]he ZOTAC VR GO Backpack upgraded with a sleeker design, more user friendly functionality and exceptional VR performance,” Zotac says. “The previous VR backpack has made an impact at Computex 2016 with the unprecedented ability to allow VR users to move unhindered by all the necessary wires. The new VR GO backpack is lighter, more durable, and more accessible.”
“Gaming and VR performance takes a generation leap with the GeForce GTX 1070 equipped in the unit,” Zotac adds. “The VR GO features battery hot-swap to provide continuous play. Wire logistics are also made easy as the case and output are designed for a hassle free VR experience. HDMI and USB output are located at the top of the unit, and the case enables wires to be hidden when not in use.”
