NVIDIA Announces HTC Vive Bundle
For those looking to do V.R. gaming on a PC, this is a great deal
NVIDIA GeForce GTX, HTC VIVE Bundle Deal Announced
VR has emerged as the next major computing platform and 2016 has been the year of VR. VR is revolutionizing how we play, interact with friends and family, and how we consume entertainment. With the holiday gift season upon us, your readers can get VR Ready with our new GeForce GTX HTC Vive Bundle.
Starting today, and just in time for the Holidays, purchase a GeForce GTX 1080, 1070, or 1060 graphics card, system, or laptop and an HTC Vive headset from participating retailers and e-tailers, and you’ll get three amazing VR games free. The three games include:
- Raw Data, from Survios, is one of the most immersive and exciting Virtual Reality games available. Built from the ground up for VR, Raw Data’s action combat gameplay, intuitive controls, challenging enemies, and sci-fi atmosphere will immerse you within the surreal environments of Eden Corp. Go solo or team up and become the adrenaline-charged heroes of your own futuristic techno thriller.
- Sports Bar VR (also known as Pool Nation VR) from Cherry Pop Games and Perilous Orbit, is the coolest VR space on the VIVE. Hangout at the air hockey tables, shoot some pool, throw a few rounds of darts, take part in the time-honoured pastime of throwing empty beer bottles against the wall… and you won’t have to clean up the mess!
- Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, from Croteam, lets you become Serious Sam and lets you fight Mental’s alien hordes with your own two hands. You will step into the shoes of the Earth Defense Force’s greatest hero in this unique VR simulation based on Sam Stone’s own log files from his time as captain of the Battlecruiser Saratoga. Experience the missions that turned Captain Stone into the legend that he is today.
Whether you’re destroying cyborgs in Raw Data, enjoying the poolroom antics of Sports Bar VR, or blasting aliens in Serious Sam VR, you’ll get the ultimate VR experience with GeForce GTX 10-series.
Delivering VR is a complex challenge, especially since immersive VR requires seven times the graphics processing power compared to traditional 3D applications and games. NVIDIA is working with every part of the VR ecosystem to help deliver amazing VR experiences. NVIDIA GPUs power that vast majority of the world’s pro and consumer VR Ready PCs. NVIDIA GPUs are used for 360 video processing and streaming. And NVIDIA VRWorks technology is used inside the world’s leading VR headsets, game engines, and VR apps to deliver better performance, lower latency, and plug-in-play compatibility.
