Current tech seems to be at the tipping point where we are about to see a really well built selection of VR headsets brought to the consumer market. Never one to be left behind, Razer has introduced at CES 2015 the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit VR headset.
The CompuLab and Linux Mint won’t dishearten on the front because they have just unveiled the MintBox 2 which is a big time improvement to their open source mini PC. It’s the second generation compressed desktop that runs Linux Mint out of the box. While the predecessor ran embedded chips like AMD E series ‘Zacate’ APUs, the latest version gets its hands on Intel Core i5 that is allegedly four times faster than the AMD T56 present in the MintBox Pro . We personally presume that Compulab might be using mobile dual-core variants, which is considered to be four times as fast as an E-series APU.
