The GR8 II, which is being described as a "console-sized gaming PC", comes packed with a ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB in a package designed for Oculus Rift VR and of course, AAA gaming. The PC will make its debut in late September, with ASUS stating that internal benchmarks have Overwatch running at a silky smooth 70fps in 2K.
With Forza Horizon 3 running at 60fps. Very nice.
GR8 II is the world’s smallest gaming PC to meet the recommended specifications required to power Oculus Rift — and is now also officially certified as Oculus Ready. GR8 II underwent stringent testing to ensure that all relevant ports, firmware, operating system software and other features are up to Oculus standards. System hardware is put through 17 rigorous performance and reliability tests to ensure the system is fully Oculus Ready. This includes a 72-hour stress test, along with the repeated swapping of hardware ports to ensure connectivity and reliability. GR8 II has a VR-friendly design with two HDMI ports to connect a VR headset and display simultaneously.
And it's G-Sync ready. The GR8II will come in two flavours, both sporting the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. The AUD $1799.00 version will come equipped with 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7400 CPU and 8GB of DDR4 memory with the AUD $2099.00 equipped with the 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700 and 16BG of DDR4 memory. And all inside the impressive 88 x 299 x 281.3mm dimensions.
Plus, the prerequisite fancy RGB LED lights that just about every gaming PC needs to have these days.
