Virtual reality used to be a thing that we only see on movies or shows on television. Yet, tech companies such as Micro-Star International or better known as MSI has created what seems to be the best, the lightest and the hottest virtual reality device available in the market.
MSI recently launched its greatest creation ever and it's not just a regular gaming PC. MSI VR One Portable Backpack has been launched and it runs on overclocked Intel Core i7 & NIVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. The Intel Core i7 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 are two of the best things combined to making a virtual reality experience out of this world!
While Qualcomm and Oculus Rift has already produced their own virtual reality headphones, MSI's VR One Portable Backpack is not like every other VR devices you have seen or touched in your life. MSI's VR One Portable Backpack is not your ordinary wireless standalone virtual reality gear; it does not just offer you the mobility to move around without any wires tripping you up. MSI's VR One Portable Backpack is the first virtual reality device that lets you escape reality anywhere you go, as reported by Arstechnica.
MSI's VR One Portable Backpack us the thinnest and the lightest VR backpack that you'll find out there. It weighs 3.58 kilograms defeating HP's svelte Omen VR backpack weighing at 4.5 kilograms. It is not much of a difference, but once you are able to get a hold of both units at the same time - it should tell you which is lighter than the other.
As reported by PC World, MSI's VR One Portable Backpack gives us about 90 minutes of gaming and there are no lags as it is endowed with an overclocked Intel iCore 7 and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. Talk about well-equipped! The MSI's VR One Portable Backpack was originally designed to use with the HTC vive and it should also be compatible with the Oculus Rift.
With the VR One packed with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, it is going to have more than enough horsepower to handle any VR game we want to play with it. As for the prices, MSI has not shared any details yet about the pricing since the company has decided to announce the pricing and ship date this week.
