Back at CES 2017 in January, Asus unveiled their VR-ready VivoPC X desktop, which is a compact desktop that has been designed to provide gamers with a single solution to gaming in virtual reality.
Today that desktop is now available to purchase from a number of retailers in the US, including Asus’ own store, B&H, Fry’s, Microcenter, Amazon, and Newegg, from which it is available to purchase for from $799.
For that you can get the system in a bundle that includes both an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset as well as a set of Touch controllers for that Oculus Rift.
It also comes with some pretty decent specifications, including a 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, 2,144MHz DDR4 RAM, along with a 512GB M.2 SATA SSD, providing all of the performance that you will need to consume a range of VR-based entertainment from virtual tours, to 360-degree videos, and more.
And of course, the VivoPC X is Oculus Ready meaning that it has passed a number of tests by Oculus to ensure that users get a fantastic VR experience.
When you aren’t in virtual reality, the VivoPC X will support 4K UHD playback on a display that has up to a 3,840 x 2,160-pixel resolution.
It is also ready for Nvidia’s G-Sync technology that allows the FeForce GTX graphics card that is inbuilt into the machine to synchronize with the display’s refresh rate, meaning that you eliminate screen tearing, minimize display stutter, and reduce input lag.
To top all of that off, the desktop also comes with four USB 3.1 Gen 1 along with two USB 2.0 ports that mean it will work perfectly with a VR headset, tracker, controller, keyboard, and a mouse without needing any more ports.
The VivoPC X also has HDMI ports and a DisplayPort for connecting to an HDTV or a G-Sync enabled monitor.
