ASUS and Gigabyte are expected to release VR products in the first half of 2016. DigiTimes claims ASUS plans to launch VR devices for use in combination with its high-end graphics cards, and heard Gigabyte is working on a product with VR tech designer 3Glasses. Not a lot of details are known though.

Asustek's and Gigabyte's VR products are expected to be released in the first half of 2016, but the companies declined to comment on their plans.
