And it’s not just the US shows that feature VR, almost all tech events around the globe seem to feature the technology in some way and this months Computex 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan is no different. ZOTAC, owned by PC Partner Group Limited will be showcasing its next generation solutions for VR, videogames, commercial and industrial applications at the show.
Taking centre stage for ZOTAC’s VR line-up will be the MAGNUS EN980 mini-PC. Part of the company’s ZBOX mini-computer range, the MAGNUS EN980 features a 6th generation Intel Skylake processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, aimed squarely at the VR consumer market.
