Vizio’s debut line of Ultrabooks and All-in-One PCs are built for power and efficiency; one thing’s for sure, they didn’t forget about gamers during the development process.
During their launch event, Vizio announced that EA’s Origin is one of the partnered services available via the “V key” installed on Vizio PC keyboards.
The V key is a portal to partnered services, however, they are not installed prior to you doing so. Intel’s IVY Bridge processor and Nvidia make gaming possible inside of Vizio’s PC.
In a short discussion we had with Vizio’s Tim Almedia, Tim was excited about their PC’s gaming capabilities.
Responsible for the product development division of Vizio, Tim noted that the development team got some gaming time with the PCs playing Left 4 Dead, and other titles for “testing” purposes. Whether it was testing or leisure time, Nvidia’s Geforce “Kepler” 640m LE installed on most of the higher tier Vizio PCs make high end gaming more or less possible depending on which configuration you purchase.
Of course, we can’t forget about Intel’s amazing IVY Bridge processors that are also responsible for incredible PC gaming experiences.
Actual gaming notebooks, like of the Alienware line, seem too large for editorial usage and light photo/video rendering. Vizio seems to have the perfect form factor to experience gaming, media editing, and writing articles – such as this one you’re reading.
The All-in-One PCs are both elegant and equally as capable as the high end Ultrabooks offered by Vizio. It seems that Vizio may have sipped their way into the marketplace rather well, offering technology that’ll really make you reconsider that retina display Macbook Pro.
