Zotac VR GO 4 Portable Gaming PC Review

Many avid gamers prefer gaming PCs to other consoles because of the PC’s better graphics, the ability to customize, and overall stronger performance. However, one of the downsides to a PC is they are often harder to transport. Thankfully, portability is not a problem for the Zotac VR GO 4.
The Zotac VR GO 4 is Zotac’s newest model in their VR GO series, which is full of gaming PCs that include a wearable strap so that users can wear it on their backs. Zotac makes the VR GO PCs portable to pair with VR headsets for a VR experience with no physical restrictions. Zotac unveiled the new VR GO 4 on May 24, 2022, at Computex 2022, where Zotac Technologies had a virtual booth.

Specifications

Zotac did not compromise performance for portability in the VR GO 4 PC. An Intel® Core™ i7 8-core/16-thread processor powers this PC, and it contains the exceptional NVIDIA RTX™ A4500 16GB GDDR6 graphics card. With 16GB DDr4 RAM, the VR GO 4 offers fantastic graphics and high-speed performance, whether stationary or on the go.
The Zotac VR GO also has 512 GB of SSD storage, and users can upgrade both the RAM and the storage. In addition, Windows 11 PRO comes pre-installed and ready for use.

Design

Like other VR GO models, the VR GO 4 has a sleek design with Spectra 2.0 RGB lighting on the back. It has plenty of ports on the top and side of the casing, including one USB-C port, six USB ports, one HDMI port, and two Display ports. In addition, Zotac claims it has a “thermal design” that keeps the gaming PC cool, whether it’s attached to the backpack or sitting on a table.
In addition to a power cord, the computer comes with two batteries for portable VR gameplay. The batteries have a charging dock with two fans to charge more quickly and extend the battery’s life.
One battery offers users about 50 minutes of gameplay, and Zotac says users can swap out the batteries without being powered off. Above the power button on the casing is a light bar that shows the computer’s battery life, and it will alert the user with noise while they’re in VR.

Wearable Technology

The Zotac VR GO 4 is compatible with many VR (virtual reality), MR (mixed reality), and AR (augmented reality) headsets, which are sold separately. As a result, you can play your favorite VR games, explore the metaverse, and participate in other VR experiences without physical restrictions while your PC is strapped to your back.
The gaming PC attaches to a metal foundation on the backpack to keep it safe and running smoothly. In addition, the PC’s backpack evenly distributes the weight of the PC across the wearer’s back and has strategically placed foam padding and a waist strap that increases back support. This way, gamers can play for hours without discomfort, and they only need to wipe down sweat-proof material to stay clean.

PC Warranty

Even with the strong foundation that connects the PC to the backpack, the device is still vulnerable to damage and defects. By purchasing an extended warranty, you will protect your PC from mechanical issues and damage without worrying about high repair costs.
Upsie’s PC warranties are comprehensive and more affordable than most retailers’ extended warranties. As a result, Upsie protects your computer while saving you money. Customers can purchase an Upsie extended warranty plan within 60 days of buying their PC. In addition, customers gain protection from mechanical issues, power failure, RAM failure, and more.
Zotac has not released the price of the VR GO 4 yet (as of 6/06/2022), but for PCs that cost between $2,000 and $2,999, Upsie offers a 2-year plan for only $107.99 and a 3-year plan for $200.99, both with no deductibles. Customers can submit a claim any time, any day of the year, and Upsie will pay for repairs up to the price of the PC. So take your PC on the go with confidence, knowing that it’s protected.
