Zotac releases VR mini-PC

Price not bad either

Zotac have created a liquid cooled mini-pc which can handle VR specs for a reasonable price.

Starting from $1,000 the Magnus EN980 is on show at Computex in Taipei. It is a small profile but has a desktop-class quad-core 2.7GHz Intel Core i5-6400 processor and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 980 graphics card.

It has 16GB of RAM and a 240GB SSD which should be just enough but what is cool about it is that it can handle the requirements for the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 and Intel Core i5 processor are more than powerful enough to meet the minimum requirements for VR. So you'll be able to use this with the HTC Vive or the Oculus Rift. All this is with a starting price of $1,000.

It uses two 180W power supply units due to limited space and liquid cooling helps keep component temperatures down.  

It will be in the shops by the end of June.
