HTC VIVE Pro Preorders

HTC is now accepting preorders for the VIVE Pro, their new "professional-grade" virtual reality headset. The price on this is $799 USD, which does not include controllers, base stations, or the VIVE wireless adapter, but does come with a six-month complimentary VIVEPORT subscription for all-you-can-eat VR gaming. They provide system specifications calling for either an Intel Core i5-4590 or AMD FX 8350 or better CPU and a GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX480 GPU, and they provide a benchmark utility to see if your PC is up to the task. Engadget notes that the original VIVE package is reduced by $100, and that the VIVE Pro should be released on April 5th.
