MDM Product Roundup – Vol 23 No 13

Dell and HP have become the latest companies to build machines that are specifically certified as VR-ready, for the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. The Dell Precision workstations will have a set of minimum specifications for the CPU, RAM and GPU, as well as graphics drivers; they will also need to pass performance tests conducted by Dell, using test critera based on benchmarks from third parties. The Dell Precision Tower 5810, 7810, and 7910 Workstations and Rack 7910 can be purchased with these upgrades now.

HP’s new HP Z Workstation configurations meet Nvidia’s VR Ready specifications. They use up to two Nvidia Quadro M6000 24GB video cards. They are available now, starting at €4,000.

Panasonic‘s Toughbook CF-54, announced earlier this year, is now available in Europe. The 14″ notebook has three display options: 1366 x 768; 1920 x 1080; or 1920 x 1080 with 10-point touch. Windows 10 Pro runs on a sixth-generation Intel Core i5 CPU, with Intel HD Graphics.
