HP has pulled the wraps off its latest VR backpack which the company calls as VR Backpack G2. Now, the first ever VR backpack from HP had launched three years ago. At the Computex 2019, HP has announced its successor. The design, as well as the concept of HP VR Backpack, remains the same but the company has upgraded the backpack with up-to-date internals.
If you are aware, HP’s VP backpack also works as a workstation which can be moved from one place to another. You can easily dock it to your monitor and use it as a gaming PC. This is similar to the previous HP Omen branded backpacks which is a gaming line from HP. As far as the HP VR Backpack G2 is concerned, it uses an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor which is slightly older but still a powerful processor. On the graphics side, there is an Nvidia GTX 2080 graphics card on this VR backpack.
HP says that this backpack will give 30% more performance as well as 25% more graphics as opposed to its previous iteration. Also, this VR Backpack G2 from HP has to be convenient as it is a modular gaming PC. And the early reviews suggest that HP VR Backpack G2 is exactly that, convenient.
The frame of this backpack can also be easily removed for cleaning. Now, we know that it is unlikely that you would use a VP backpack for casual usage. This type of product is mostly seen in demo areas as well as enterprise locations. So it is a good thing that the backpack can be easily removed. Even HP says that the VR backpack is made for use-cases such as “multi-user entertainment venues, architectural walk-throughs, and design simulations”. The backpack from HP is priced at $3299 and will be available from Summer this year in the US.
