Zotac is one of several companies that’s stuffing a gaming PC into a backpack in an effort to let you engage in virtual reality sessions without tripping over wires… since they can run from a headset to a PC on your back.
Zotac isn’t the first to market with a gaming-PC-in-a-backpack. The MSI VR One went on sale earlier this month. It’s also priced at $1999.
Zotac’s model features an Intel Core i7-6700T quad-core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 240GB 2.5″ SATA III drive.
It features three HDMI 2.0 ports, two DisplayPort 1.3 ports, and support for up to 4 external displays, so while the system is designed for use with a virtual reality headset like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you could also set it up for use as a desktop gaming system when you’re not wearing the backpack.
There are six USB 3.0 ports, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, dual 6,660 mAh batteries, and a fan plus heatsink to keep the system from burning your back.
