ASUS and Gigabyte reportedly planning to launch VR devices

ASUS logoVirtual reality has become much more popular over the last couple of years, Samsung’s Gear VR has done an incredible job of bringing this technology to the mainstream, and with multiple new VR headsets coming in 2016 from the likes of Sony, Oculus, HTC and others one can only imagine how big VR is going to be in the years to come. Taiwan-based ASUS and Gigabyte seem to have grasped that which is why they’re believed to be planning to launch virtual reality devices.

Citing supply chain makers based in China, Digitimes reports that ASUS is planning to launch a wearable virtual reality device which will be used with its gaming notebooks. Gigabyte Technology is also said to be developing something similar in collaboration with VR company 3Glasses.

ASUS and Gigabyte reportedly planning to launch VR Devices

It’s believed that notebook brand vendors will increasingly turn towards virtual reality in the coming year in which notebook shipments are expected to remain weak. VR is perceived as many as a main hardware development direction for gaming notebooks.

Both companies mentioned in this report have not yet confirmed their VR plans but it’s claimed that they’re going to release their virtual reality devices in the first half of next year.

If that really is the case then customers will certainly have a lot to choose from since companies like Oculus and HTC are also expected to release their virtual reality headsets in the first half of 2016.
