Lenovo revealed at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference (GTC) their new line of Nvidia certified VR Ready computers, the company’s next step in VR dedicated hardware. And if you’re thinking of getting your hands on the new line of ThinkStations—the P910, P710, and P510—you better have some serious cash on hand.

Lenovo is touting three new ThinkStation systems focusing on enterprise virtual reality. “By selecting a VR Ready configuration, you can rest assured, you will receive the highest performing VR experience,” the company writes.

And we’d certainly hope so; the company’s top of the line, the ThinkStation P910, is packing dual 24 GB Nvidia Quadro M6000s, a workstation GPU that Newegg lists for $5,000 a piece. We’re not taking the other components lightly either, with the recently announced Intel Xeon E5-2637 v4 ($996) and a hefty 32GB DDR4 RAM minimum to top it off.

quadro-m6000-FAlthough there aren’t any official prices posted for any of their new ThinkStations, Lenovo’s new lineup for VR-ready computers is clearly targeting a professional userbase across a number of hypothetical industries just getting into virtual reality. Professionals in healthcare, product design, automotive design, architecture and engineering are all among the top priorities of Lenovo’s new VR-ready systems, and the company has recently teamed up with enterprise-facing VR team WorldViz to make it a reality.

At GTC 2016 this week, WorldViz is demoing their Co-Presence VR Experience on Lenovo hardware using the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets. WorldViz has been creating shared VR experiences targeted at professional users since 2002, including several prototypes such as a DK1-era room-scale setup using tracked input devices, and CAVE systems for shared exploration. The company recently raised an investment from Intel in light of the growth of consumer VR.

If you’re wondering what the new Lenovo VR-ready systems are packing under the hood (like you’ll ever get your hands on one) we’ve put the basic specs down below.

    The Titan Z has 5760 cuda cores for less than $2000 per card. They were going for $1500 a while back.

  • Mark Kiernan

    Would be nice to see prices dropping ;)

  • Badelhas

    Whats the point on this for us average consumers? Isnt a 980 gtx more than enough for high quality 90fps VR??

    • Hans Wurst

      Not at all. This is all just beginnning.

  • Sky Castle

    For $5,000 it doesn’t even have HDMI port to connect the Vive or Oculus.

    • Farnborough

      I understand that $ 5000 is the price of one GPU, not the system… :-(

  • dogtato

    Are these expensive cards actually good for VR? Apple just got called out for not having any VR capable computers because they only good GPUs they offer are “workstation” for editing.

  • Kai2591

    all the driver issues though…no?
