Yesterday, Zotac announced their latest iteration of their VR Backpack PC, called the VR GO 3.0. We’ve seen one of their older models in action and boy, it was epic. Put’s more meaning to the term ‘carrying ya mates’ in a game, assuming you’re as good at gaming as we are.
This new model will include an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card, a 9th gen i7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM and it’s full of RGB! These backpack PC’s come with 2x 6000mAh batteries for ultra-portability. The specifics:
- RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6
- i7-9750H Six Core upto 4.5GHz
- 16GB DDR4 DOSIMM RAM (max 32gb)
- 240GB M.2 SSD (upgrade to include a 2.5″ HDD)
- 2x HDMI 2.0 and 1x DisplayPort 1.4
- 1000Mbps LAN + 802.11 WiFi
- 347x280x87mm and weighs 5.2kg
- You get Windows 10 too.
Built to power today’s leading VR headsets, the VR GO 3.0 improves performance by around 25 percent from the previous generation with added support for RTX-powered ray tracing and AI in today’s versatile VR landscape while infusing the freedom of movement and untethering of wires.
Thanks to a lightweight and sleek enclosure retaining its signature design, the upgraded backpack PC delivers on the promise of the smoothest performance possible in room-scale VR without compromising on latency and visual fidelity.
The fabric of the backpack utilizes a sweatproof material for simpler maintenance. Users can enjoy nearly limitless playtime with the hot-swappable batteries and external battery charging dock enabling up to 1 hour of uninterrupted action.
This thing looks blooming awesome! The spec’s look good, sure they could be better but I’m sure when these get benchmarked, they’ll be just fine for VR. How much will one set you back? A cool £2199 all in, which is steep if you compared it to buying a desktop, but you’re not, so don’t. To find out more about this and to purchase, head over to the official Zotac website.
