HTC has teamed up with Gigabyte Technology in order to launch the Cosmos
Series X Aorus 15G bundle; a quick start VR system, with both a powerful laptop and VR headset.
The bundle offers a VIVE Cosmos Series headset and a pre-integrated AORUS 15G professional gaming laptop giving customers both a premium VR system and compatible high-quality gaming laptop optimized for VR with a simple, plug-and-play setup.
Gamers can choose from the Vive Cosmos x AORUS 15G for £2,549, or the Vive Cosmos Elite x AORUS 15G for £2,749. The bundle includes the headset of choice and the AORUS 15G laptop driven by Intel’s tenth-generation Core i7 H series octa-core processors and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 (Max Q) for outstanding performance.
With a 15.6-inch screen and weighing in at around 2.2kg, this powerful yet portable laptop has everything needed to run the latest VR content on Vive Cosmos or Vive Cosmos Elite.
The Cosmos Series x AORUS 15G bundle makes getting into or upgrading to a PC-VR setup very easy thanks to pre-installed, optimized Vive software and drivers along with an automatic “VR mode” to enhance performance. When the headset is plugged into the laptop, VR Mode will turn on automatically to optimize CPU, GPU, and fan usage.
Additionally, if a user wants to unplug the laptop from AC power and still use VR, the AI-Assisted VR mode, powered by Microsoft Azure AI, optimizes the system for high performance. A VIVEPORT Infinity subscription is included right in the box to help people get started quickly.
