The Asus Vivo PC line of desktops have been around for a few years, and most are focused more on diminutive size than bleeding-edge performance. If you want a truly powerful Asus desktop for gaming, you’re usually better off going with one of the company’s ROG gaming rigs.
But this year Asus is launching a Vivo PC aimed at gamers who might be willing to sacrifice a little power in order to have a VR-ready computer that doesn’t take up a lot of space.
It’s called the VivoPC X and its 5 liter size makes it a bit bigger than a game console, but a lot smaller than most desktop computers.
Under the hood, the computer features an Intel Core i5 Kaby Lake processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, and support for up to 512GB of M.2 SSD storage and up to 2TB of hard drive storage. There’s also 8GB of DDR4 RAM.
The system has four USB 3.1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, two HDMI ports, and a DisplayPort with support for NVIDIA G-Sync displays.
The VivoPC X is expected to hit the streets in March for around $800.
