Asus today unveiled its latest VR-ready Windows 10 PC at CES 2017. The company’s new VivoPC X is a compact VR-ready PC that weighs under 5 pounds (around 2.2kg). The device comes with Intel’s Kaby Lake Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD for the storage. As for the GPU, you’ll get NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 which is good enough for virtual reality and it should allow you to run most VR games just fine. However, if you want to push its boundaries, you should probably look for a PC that has slightly more powerful GPUs such as the GTX 1080 or even the GTX 1070.

The VivoPC X also includes two HDMI ports and a single DisplayPort with support for NVIDIA’s G-Sync displays. The usual ports are also present on the VivoPC X, including four USB 3.1 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.

The Vivo PC X will be available from March for $799.
