This is amazing! Hope they come out with more min-PC's that are VR/Gaming minded!

I wondered what chipset they were using to make it "VR capable". It turns out it's:

Discrete Graphic Card: Discrete Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics, 4G

This thing is small (5.5" x 8") and they've crammed a 100W i7 in there. My money says it's going to be hot, or loud...or both.

I have it, not as bad as you'd expect. I hardly notice it ever.

Tests on this thing are showing a desktop 580 smokes it, advertising this as VR ready, might disappoint people who think they're getting a great product in a tiny package.

For this price tag, you can get a laptop with 8750h and 1060 on it. Not worth to invest.

I agree. Plus all the negative reviews in Egg and Amazon points out to a problem with the thermals due to a dodgy cooling system.

Picked up one of these things a few weeks ago. Have over 50 hours playing DQ11 at 1080p on my tv. Pretty happy with it especially not having to deal with Android Kodi shenanigans.
