If you’re interested in virtual reality, the reality is that there are a lot of cables to contend with. Zotac is aiming to solve that problem with the VR Go, a backpack PC that doubles up as a traditional desktop computer.
The VR Go uses a custom motherboard that houses an Intel Core i7 CPU, two DDR4 SO-DIMMs, an M.2 SSD (PCIe 3.0 x4), and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 video card. With a TDP of 150W, the system can get quite hot, which is why Zotac is using a proprietary low-profile air cooling system to effectively dissipate heat.
There’s a removable battery option, allowing you to wear the VR Go and use it autonomously to power your VR headset. An HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports and a power connector are located on one side, making it easy to connect your headset to the VR Go.
As of now, there’s no word on when the VR Go will be available, with Zotac stating that it will have more details sometime later this quarter. If nothing else, we should see this make its way to CES in January.
