Zotac has announced the India price and availability of its VR GO backpack computer, which made waves across the world when it was unveiled in early November. The VR GO will be available online in India via Prime ABGB by the end of December, priced at Rs. 1,74,999. The mini computer went on sale in other regions priced at a hefty $1,999.99 (roughly Rs. 1,36,700), and the company has finally revealed complete specifications.

To recall, the Zotac VR GO is actually a mini PC that comes with detachable straps. This, alongside a removable battery pack, enables it to be carried like a backpack, and also enjoy virtual reality (VR) content on the go. The specifications of the system include the beefy Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 video RAM, making it more than capable of handling the demanding graphics required for the output of VR content.
