According to Digital Trends Xotic PC’s new VR range is based around Nvidia’s GeForce GTX VR Ready graphics tech and each can handle VR games in their 360-degree glory even when personalized at the base level.
The PCs have a spec based around an Intel Skylake i5-6500 CPU, an Nvidia GTX 970, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 1TB hard drive – we assume that is the cheapest model as 8GB RAM is a bit small for the sort of money we are talking here.
CEO Justin Nolte told Digital Trends that his outfit was not a cookie-cutter PCs maker and it offers a a wide range of both performance and visual customisation options that gamers demand.
Yeah pretty much like a lot of PC retailers. The desktop versions are pricey too with cheapest, the Exodus Mini, starting at $1,429. Pricey even if you are used to wasting money on an top of the range Apple. The laptops Xotic is selling have a comedy battery life of “2+ hours” long.
Nolte said that Xotic’s VR Ready lineup is “future-proof” because the company is confident that the systems will be “immersing you in virtual worlds now and in the foreseeable future.”
True, an expensive high-tech PC costing $2,000 that runs VR should do all you need for about five years or so, unless there is some serious technology shift.
