UP­GRADES ITS CRE­ATIV­ITY PC FOR A VR AND AR WORLD

Tech Advisor - - Feature: The Best Of Ces 2017 -

Hard­core PC hard­ware isn’t just about gam­ing, so HP used CES 2017 to re­veal its up­graded Sprout Pro work­sta­tion. And thanks to the Win­dows 10 Cre­ators Up­date, the firm’s Sprout plat­form should be more friendly to 3D con­tent cre­ation than ever be­fore.

The ma­chine uses a Full-HD DLP pro­jec­tor and what HP calls a Touch Mat to quickly turn any small ob­ject – like the skull model shown here – into a 3D wire frame. The ben­e­fits for VR and AR con­tent cre­ation should be ob­vi­ous.

The up­graded Sprout Pro has a 2.9GHz Kaby Lake Core i7-7700T and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960M with 2GB of GDDR5 mem­ory. The main dis­play is 23.8 inches with a 1920x1080 res­o­lu­tion and 10-point touch. Pric­ing is un­known, but the orig­i­nal Sprout costs £2,266.
