Compact VR-ready PCs have been a reality since the introduction of Nvidia's GTX 1060 series, allowing smaller and lighter desktops and laptops to power VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. A VR-ready "living-room-style" desktop PC, the Asus VivoPC X is designed to be portable but powerful.
Weighing in at just under 5 pounds, the VivoPC X packs a Kaby Lake Core i5 CPU (presumably a desktop version), GTX 1060 GPU, 8 GB RAM, and 512 GB SSD storage. That should be enough power and storage to get you through at least the next couple of years of VR titles. Port-wise, it's got four USB 3.1 and two USB 2.0, two HDMI, and one DisplayPort (supporting G-Sync) ports. Asus says the VivoPC X will sell for US$799, and will ship in mid-March.
