Zotac’s VR GO Virtual Reality backpack finally has a price attached to it. We first showed you the VR GO backpack when it was revealed at Zotac’s 10th Anniversary event in Hong Kong. The unit will go for $1999, which gives you the ability to strap this PC to your back and kick some ass in VR without cables holding you back.
The VR Go allows for 2 hours of continuous gaming as it is powered by two Li-ion batteries rated at 95Wh (6600mAh). The batteries are hot-swappable and can be charged separately, they have a 12V output for powering your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. When you are not using the VG GO as a backpack it can be used at a normal desktop PC. The form factor will allow it to be placed vertically or horizontally on your desk.
Back to the price, for $1999 you’ll get an Intel Core i7 6700T (2.8 GHz base, up to 3.6 GHz turbo), NVIDIA GTX 1070, 16 GB of DDR4-2133 memory installed (upgradable up to 64 GB), a 240 GB M.2 SATA SSD (with one extra, unpopulated 2.5″ SATA bay), a 3-in-1 card reader (SD/SDHC/SDXC), and Windows 10 Home pre-installed. The hardware inside is cooled both passively (with heatsinks) and actively (with fans).
For those wondering about I/O you have six USB 3.0 ports, dual Gigabit LAN, 3x HDMI 2.0, 2x DisplayPort, headphone and microphone ports, 802.11 ac/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2.
