HP announced on its official website that it has joined forces with Nvidia to upgrade HP’s Z Workstations with NVIDIA’s VR Ready system, making this line of professional products VR compatible. The new systems will be a gold mine for VR content developers, with the systems sporting up to two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 24GB cards and supporting Scalable Link Interface (SLI), GPU Affinity API, and VR Synchronization technologies. With these features, the two companies hope to eliminate image tearing.

Such a state of the art workstation can be used by professionals from various fields, from 3D content creators and media professionals to game and application developers.

The outstanding VR performance of these updated Z Workstations boast ultra-high frame rates and low latency, even with the most complex data sets. These characteristics are essential in delivering high-quality VR experiences.

HP realized that virtual reality is the future of technology and Jeff Wood, Vice President of Worldwide Product Management, summed this idea up very well:

We are embarking on a new frontier that will change how content producers and artists develop the most immersive, visually stimulating content available. HP Z desktop workstations with NVIDIA graphics are the ideal combination for this new content creation era.

Bob Pette, Vice President of Professional Visualization of NVIDIA, shares Wood’s thoughts:

VR is expanding beyond gaming to revolutionize fields across everyday life — like medicine, architecture, education, product design and retailing. Our VR Ready initiative makes it easy for professional users to adopt VR technology to make better, more informed decisions and perform their best work.

As for its price tag, the cheapest  NVIDIA VR Ready™ HP Z Workstation starts at $4,363, with an upgrade scheduled for May with the integration of the Dual M6000 24GB cards.
