UPGRADES ITS CREATIVITY PC FOR A VR AND AR WORLD
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.
