X'mas Gift Idea 10: A compact VR-ready system

X'mas Gift Idea 10: A compact VR-ready system

Note: This year, our gift suggestion series is proudly supported by ASUS and their ROG team. Thank you ASUS!

As we have seen from the ROG G20CI from yesterday, ASUS is something of an expert when it comes to building small but powerful systems.

The VivoPC X might not be as powerful as the ROG G20CI, but it is no less impressive. It measures just 26cm tall and 28 cm wide and weighs a scant 2.2kg. But inside, it features a Core i5 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU.

More importantly, it was designed specifically to be VR-ready. In fact, it has been certified by Oculus to work well with its Oculus Rift headset. Additionally, it has four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, allowing users to connect the VivoPC X to their VR headset, tracker, keyboard, mouse, controllers and even additional monitors.

Best of all, the ASUS VivoPC X is priced at just S$1,398, which makes it one of the most affordable VR-ready systems in the market. Find out more about the ASUS VivoPC X here.
