Maingear ups the ante with new VR systems

maingear-revamp-F131Maingear, a name that is synonymous with custom gaming solutions, has just lifted the curtain on not one, but two VR systems. One of them would be the F131 desktop that has received a complete revamp, while the other would be the refreshed NOMAD VR notebook. These two have been selected to be part of its “Tuned for VR” range, where the latest systems have been developed in partnership with VR (Virtual Reality) manufacturers and developers in order to make a forward looking push where gaming is concerned.

The F131 desktop can be said to be a classic that has been reborn, where it packs high-performance hardware into a slim and efficient design. This time around, it comes in an even more compact and modern chassis that is highlighted by a tempered glass and brushed aluminum exterior, making it a system that is worthy of centerpiece status in your home. Not only that, it has customizable cutting-edge components such as dual video cards, overclocked Intel processors, a trio of drive bays that will be able to support blazing fast SSDs, and up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. It remains nice and cool thanks to a Dual Flow VRTX design which will breathe cool air from both the front and rear of the system as it pushes out warm air out of the top.

As for the NOMAD VR, this full-sized performance notebook will feature a range of desktop components in order to deliver uncompromised, overclocked performance. There is an Intel i7 6700K processor running proceedings from within, accompanied by NVIDIA’s GTX 980 Desktop GPU with G-Sync for smooth 1080p gaming, and dual fan cooling, making it the ideal system to experience virtual reality on-the-go. The presence of overclockable CPU and GPU makes it all the more desirable, as it is accompanied by Thunderbolt 3/SuperSpeed USB 3.1 with integrated Type-C connector, the latest wireless AC technology for unrivaled bandwidth, and a 2.0 megapixel integrated webcam and microphone.

Any takers for either one of these two high powered machines?
