ASUS VivoPC X makes VR gaming more manageable

ASUS VivoPC X

A full-fledged VR-ready PC the size of a gaming console? Count us in!

That’s what the ASUS VivoPC X is all about, and it’s quite the looker, too. Resembling the company’s ROG series of gaming equipment, this mini-PC isn’t going to blast through graphics-intensive games on the highest settings, but it’s compact enough to fit on any desk.

It does so by injecting just the right amount of processing power; you can tell by the seventh-generation Intel Core i5 Kaby Lake processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card that are on board.

The 8GB of memory and 512GB of SSD storage also whisper good enough, but this setup is needed to keep the weight at around 2kg. Again, this is all good enough to handle VR gaming, albeit at lower graphics levels compared to what you’d get from a GTX 1070 or 1080.

In order to connect to all the VR peripherals, the VivoPC X is equipped with four fast USB 3.1 ports and two simpler USB 2.0 ports. That’s perfect for handling the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. ASUS also threw in a full-sized DisplayPort and two HDMI ports for monitor connections.

Everything adds to the total bill of $799 — not bad for the design you’re buying, but a lot pricier than building your own PC with even better specs. You can find the VivoPC X in stores this March.
