VR and DirectX 12 ready PCs stacked on shelves

AMD's Roy Taylor has been known to use its razor sharp marketing skills to tease the upcoming products and now he took to Twitter to show a shelf fully stacked with "console-sized" Falcon Northwest Tiki PCs with Radeon Technologies Group and AMD badge.

In a tweet that says: "Developers, we have something coming for you," Roy Taylor, Corporate Vice President of Alliances at AMD, has showed a shelf full of what appears to be the same Falcon North West Tiki 4-inch gaming PCs which were showcased during the Virtual Reality Los Angeles (VRLA) 2016 Winter Expo, powered by AMD's Radeon Fury X2 graphics card based on two 28nm Fiji GPUs.

It appears that these systems will be heading to developers focused on DirectX 12 and Virtual Reality as that is what the dual-GPU flagship card with 12 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance is all about.

The Falcon Northwest Tiki gaming PC is a result of AMD's promise to deliver the world's most powerful small computer for developers.

In case you missed it earlier, AMD's Radeon Fury X2 dual-GPU graphics card has been delayed earlier and it is currently scheduled to launch sometime in Q2 this year and be ready for Oculus VR and HTC's Vive VR headsets.
