Zotac VR backpack is a GO, offers 2 hours of cord-free gameplay

Posted on Monday, November 28 2016 @ 11:47:02 CET by


Zotac announces the release of its VR Go backpack, a rival for the MSI VR One. The backpack features a portable computer system with an Intel Core i7-6700T processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB video card. Other specifications include 16GB DDR4 memory, a 240GB M.2 SSD, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, three HDMI 2.0 ports, two DisplayPort 1.3 ports, and six USB 3.0 ports.

It features two integrated 6600mAh li-ion batteries and promises up to two hours of untethered gameplay, which is a bit more than the 90 minutes promised by the MSI VR backpack. Furthermore, because the battery system has a hot-swappable design you can basically go on forever if you invest in a couple of spare batteries.

The Zotac VR GO should start shipping soon, pricing details are unknown but expect it to be very pricey.

The ZOTAC VR GO is designed for a truly mobile VR experience. From hardware to comfort, every detail is considered. VR GO provides powerful yet efficient performance with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and Intel Core i7 processor. Hardware and thermal design enable marathon playtime with comfort and minimal noise. Securing the backpack with both chest and waist straps, users can move freely in the other world.

VR GO is built for longevity with two main features:
- Battery hot-swap provides nearly limitless action
A charging dock comes bundled to charge the dedicated batteries. The VR GO also enables users to easily know the status of the battery charge with an easy to see LED indicator.

“When designing the VR GO, we were keen on emphasizing the user experience,” Says Jacky Huang, Director of Mini PC, ZOTAC International. “We want the users to truly immerse in virtual reality and free their mind from limitations such as cables, power, and discomfort.”

Systems are usually designed to be placed away from the user, where it is meant to be connected to devices that are placed at arm’s length. The VR GO breaks the tradition, and sets the standard for wearing a device with full desktop capabilities. To maintain comfort levels, the exhaust heat is channeled away from the user and dedicated paths on the back support allow the body to breathe and stay cool during extended sessions.

The weight is evenly distributed for ergonomic comfort while the added foam back support and shoulder strap padding provide the extra comfort.

The VR GO backpack is the next step into a truly immersive VR experience, perfect for uses from personal to commercial and industrial as it can transform to either a wearable form or as a standalone desktop Mini PC. Windows 10 Home comes preinstalled so it is ready for action right out of the box. Per tradition with all ZOTAC ZBOX Mini PCs, VR GO is easily upgradable in both storage and memory.
