Whether it’s in architecture, telemedicine, or even the travel industry, virtual reality is changing the way we interact, learn, design and create. Mobile VR goes further to bring new life to the immersive experience by letting professionals move, walk and interact as they go.

Today HP announced the HP Z VR Backpack, the first to be powered by the new NVIDIA Quadro P5200 GPU. The HP Z VR Backpack is a lightweight, 10 pound, wearable PC that allows professionals to move around unencumbered in any VR environment. Combined with NVIDIA Quadro P5200, designers, engineers and renderers now have a high-end workstation on their back.

“With the NVIDIA Quadro P5200 powering the HP ZVR Backpack, the wearable VR workstation is realized,” said Josh Peterson, vice president of product management for workstations, HP Inc. “Now our customers can smoothly interact with high-end workloads and complex simulations with optimal performance and the ultimate user experience.”

The new NVIDIA Quadro P5200 GPU, powered by our NVIDIA Pascal GPU technology, has a 16GB memory capacity, making it the most powerful mobile workstation GPU on the market today. The P5200 lets pros work with complex designs in life-like immersive VR or across expansive 4K desktop displays wherever they may be.
