PC Partner Group Limited has announced its second generation virtual reality (VR) backpack PC, under the famous ZOTAC brand. ZOTAC hosted a global press conference, ZOTAC WORLD CUP invitational games, and subsequently revealed the ‘VR GO’ Backpack. During the press conference, PC Partner introduced three limited special edition products from the major product lines – video graphics cards, mini PC and SSD – in addition to the ZOTAC VR GO Backpack.
“PC Partner has never stopped finding ways to make it even better. As PC Partner paves way to the future, it pledges to innovate not only the hardware, but also the direction of innovation,” said Mr. Wong Shik Ho Tony, Chairman and CEO of PC Partner. “Focusing on multiple platforms, including the trusted graphics and computing solutions, while also reaching beyond to deliver market-defining technology, products and services, PC Partner will continue to seek new growth drivers.”
The ZOTAC VR GO Backpack features a sleeker design, more user friendly functionality and exceptional VR performance. The previous VR backpack made an impact at Computex 2016 with the ability to allow VR users to move unhindered by all the necessary wires. The new VR GO backpack is lighter, more durable, and more accessible.
Gaming and VR performance takes a generation leap with the GeForce GTX 1070 equipped in the unit. The VR GO features battery hot-swap to provide continuous play. Wire logistics are also made easy as the case and output are designed for a hassle free VR experience. HDMI and USB output are located at the top of the unit, and the case enables wires to be hidden when not in use.
Also revealed where the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 ArcticStorm Thermaltake 10 Year Anniversary Edition; a completely new PCB which delivers 16 power phases (instead of the traditional 8+2 power phase) on the board, the 10 Year Anniversary Edition MAGNUS EN1080; equipped with the GeForce GTX 1080, and the 10 Year Anniversary Edition SONIX SSD; with read speeds up to 2,800Mbps.
No release date or price information is currently available for any of these products, however VRFocus will of course keep you updated with all the latest details on ZOTAC’s VR endeavours.
