"Thanks to VR," he says, "In this coming year we will see a resurgence of high-end PCs in the home."

This comes just after NVIDIA stated VR requires seven times more powerful computers.

Faliszek then asks, "What's the side-effect? What are the opportunities?" Lewdness aside, we'd say decreased console sales, increased 4K adoption, and lower hardware prices all seem plausible.
