ASUS has a great success with its new VivoPc X series low-cost gaming computer. Some people want to run VR or gaming and this is where the VivoPC X fits in. It is an extremely affordable mini-PC that can be used as a compact computer to place beside an TV. While this is a mini PC.
Powering the VivoPC X M80 is the Intel Core i5-7300HQ quad-core processor and GTX1060 with 3GB DDR5. The GTX 1060 is a mid-range graphics processor, but it provides sufficient performance for the typical consumer uses of light gaming, streaming media, and a few productivity applications.
Just don’t expect much if you want to play games in high settings, as it will lag. The processor is matched up with 8 GB of DDR4 memory, which is fine for such a low cost. One of the big advantages here is that the system can run VR and support Nvidia G-Sync technology.
The VivoPC X is certified to support the Oculus Rift headset, which is demonstrated by how it has four USB 3.1 ports, two HDMI ports, and one DisplayPort to hook up multiple screens and a headset. However, all the USB ports are on the back. So, depending on where you keep the desktop, simple tasks like plugging in a memory stick can become a hassle.
VivoPC X’s design is clearly meant to invoke a console-like feel, with the ability to both stand vertically or lay flat. The little desktop is also fantastically light, weighing about 5 pounds (2.2 kg).
