Being as potent as it is, you might think it'd be the perfect companion for VR on the go. A mobile VR showcase where you could theoretically go door to door selling the benefits of VR. The component choices are more than powerful enough to support the resolutions of the main VR headsets, and could theoretically play most games released now and even some in the future with those HMD's. VR is readily becoming an accessible technology, even if the cost of entry isn't exactly that reachable for everyone. Thankfully, the EON17-X is more than capable of running games in VR.
To test this, we fired up the SteamVR Performance Test and took a look at what it said we could do. In the future, once the two headsets are in place and setup, we'll have actual game performance. But rest assured that this exceeds the minimum requirements for VR, and will likely play games like EVE: Valkyrie beautifully.
Though here you can see that it doesn't quite have the highest score possible, that doesn't mean VR is out of the question. Turn the detail down a bit and it should be able to handle it. Actual gameplay will vary, and since it was able to keep framerates above the refresh rate of the Vive, this should be a good match for road-VR.
