ASUS announces its Windows Mixed Reality Headset

Earlier this week, Dell was the first to give its Windows Mixed Reality headset a name, calling it the Visor. At IFA today, ASUS has went with something far more generic, launching the ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset.

The Windows Blog post didn't list a lot of specifics for the head-mounted display (HMD), but it did say that it weighs in at less than 400g, "featuring a balanced-crown design that that reduces pressure on the nose and face". It should have similar specs as all of the other HMDs that are coming out, including two 1440x1440 displays, and the same system requirements, which allow for the experience to run at 60fps on PCs with integrated graphics, and 90fps on devices with discrete graphics.

Back in October, Microsoft announced that its partners would be launching these headsets with a lower entry point than competing products from Oculus and HTC. Of the partners mentioned - including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo - ASUS has been pretty quiet about its HMD until now.

According to The Verge, the ASUS Windows Mixed Reality Headset will be priced at €449, or about $535, but it's not known if it will come bundled with Motion Controllers. It will be available later on this year.
