- Comes with detachable backpack straps
- Has an inbuilt proprietary cooling system
- Pricing and availability still not announced
In one of the most unique products to have ever come out from the company, Zotac has announced a mini PC named VR GO, which comes with detachable straps that enables users to carry it around as a backpack. However, don’t let the looks of the mini PC deceive you as it comes with hardware specifications capable enough to power even virtual reality content.
Zotac VR GO, as the name suggests, has been primarily designed keeping two things in mind, that is, portability and support for virtual reality content. As the company has provided detachable straps for the former, it has also equipped the machine with hardware specifications to support the latter.
The portable mini PC comes with a powerful GTX 1070 graphics card and an Intel Core i7 processor. In order to cool down the GPU and CPU, Zotac VR GO comes with a “proprietary low-profile air cooling system,” reports Anandtech.
In order to make the connectivity easy and simplified, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, and the power connector have all been put on the same side of the device. In addition to this, Zotac VR Go comes with a removable battery that actually makes it portable – however, Zotac has yet to provide battery life figures. If you want to expand the storage, the mini PC comes with a 2.5-inch bay for an SSD or an HDD.Due to the above stated specifications, users can even turn the portable mini PC into a desktop PC by simply removing the straps. The price or the availability of Zotac VR GO has still not been announced by the company, beyond a Q4 2016 timeline for release
