More and more tech companies are pushing us towards VR aka Virtual Reality. And EVGA is no different, the company has decided to release a new VR Ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti video card.
What does a VR ready video card mean?
For now at least it means that the video card comes with some high speed USB ports ready to handle the latest VR headsets like the up and coming Oculus Rift.
Basically EVGA wants to take the confusion out of VR gaming by giving the user out of the box connectivity to VR headsets by including a VR-ready HDMI output along with a front-facing HDMI 2.0 ports and 2 USB 3.0/3.1 ports. The design works well for a front panel configuration making it ideal to run the cables needed.
As for actual specs of the EVGA’s VR Edition GeForce GTX 980 Ti, we’ve yet to seen anything but expect a more robust architecture and improved cooling systems, perhaps something along the lines of ACX 2.0+
