Oculus certifies Aorus X7 v6 gaming notebook as "VR-Ready"
The 17.3-inch super-thin gaming notebook is now officially backed by Oculus to be one of the first gaming notebooks recommended for Oculus Rift owners.

With PSVR now out in the wild, other VR manufacturers will be pushing their respective headsets even further before this coming Holiday season. Oculus has now christened the 17.3-inch Aorus X7 v6 gaming notebook as "Oculus-Ready" to be one of the first notebooks officially recognized by the VR manufacturer.

The announcement comes immediately following the recent Oculus Connect 3 event and we're not exactly surprised by the partnership, either. Aorus was already showing off its VR prowess at CES 2016 with special backpacks and notebooks to avoid the cable tethering issues that current VR users face with desktop PCs.

The manufacturer is known for its unique X lineup of notebooks that tend to carry very high-end features and options not found on most other super-thin solutions. Our recently reviewed X5 v6, for example, carries a Live Stream Engine M.2 module for streamers, SmartCam front-facing camera for live background filtering, 2880 x 1620 resolution display, and indivudally-lit RGB keys. Having the support of Oculus is a no-brainer since Aorus targets a very specific gaming user base.

The Aorus X7 v6 is now shipping with the a Core i7-6820HK CPU, FHD or QHD 120 Hz/5 ms display, and GTX 1070 graphics. Expect our full review on this notebook in the coming weeks.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
