If you are located on the Indian subcontinent and have been waiting for a locally supported Windows Mixed Reality headset to start your VR journey, today we can happily report that the Acer Windows Mixed Reality headset and controller bundle will soon be officially on sale in the region.
Acer made the announcement as part of its Predator League event in Bangalore and is the first WMR headset to come to India.
“By introducing the Mixed Reality headset, we aim to bring best of our innovations to the Indian customers. Its ergonomic design, vibrant display and motion controllers makes it the revolutionary device for those who embrace virtual reality and look for the best in technology,” Chandrahas Panigrahi, CMO and Consumer Business Head, said in a statement.
Unfortunately, no price has been announced, but Acer’s headset is the most affordable of the currently announced bundles, so should hopefully not break the bank.
The headset comes with the following specs:
- 2.89” diagonal display size (x2)
- Two high-resolution liquid crystal displays at 1440 x 1440
- Front hinged display
- 95 degrees horizontal field of view
- Display refresh rate up to 90 Hz (native)
- Built-in audio out and microphone support through 3.5mm jack
- Single cable with HDMI 2.0 (display) and USB 3.0 (data) for connectivity
- Inside-out tracking
- 4.00m cable
While Windows Mixed Reality is designed to perform on a mid-range PC, for the best experience you still need something beefy, such as a PC running Intel Desktop i7 (6+ Core) OR AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8-Core, 16 threads) CPU, NVIDIA GTX 980/1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480 (8GB) equivalent or greater GPU and 16GB or greater RAM.
