Note: This is just an idea that came into mind, to see if it's possible with the technology nowadays.

 

I was rewatching Linus' video about the couples pc: 

And got me into thinking if it was possible to do the same with a portable, small pc like this one:

 

So is it possible to have a computer that has two independent GPU's like in Linus' videos small enough that you can go around with it and then plug two external monitors, 2 keyboards and mouse and a pair of headsets?

 

If so what would be the specs of the rig, prices and reliability of the build (if it's worth it or not to build and execute)

 

Again this is just an idea, I have no intentions to build it (at least for now) and I'm curious about it.

Let the curiosity begin!

 

Current Rig:

Mobo - MSI B450 Pro-Max VDH | CPU - Ryzen 5 3600 (AMD duh) | GPU - GTX 1660 Super (MSI) | WAM - 2 x 8GB 3200MHz (G.SKILLS Ripjaws)Storage - 1 x 256GB SSD (Crucial) + 1 x 2TB | HDD 7200RPM (Seagate Barracuda) | PSU - Cooler Master 450W | Case - Cooler Master Q300L | Display - Asus VP248QG (Main) + AOC 24B1W1 | Other Stuff - Bloody B120 (Keyboard) + HP X220 Gaming Mouse + Asus A541UJ (Laptop)

Get 2 laptops.

 

The whole unraid running 2 gaming systems on one thing is more of a proof of concept. It's not stable, expensive, you lose hardware power, easy to mess up and high maintenance.

 

Even portable desktops have never really taken off because well how portable is a mini itx system with a monitor keyboard and mouse really. That is easily one full backpack and then you usually don't even have the nice comfort of a bigger high refresh rate monitor compared to a laptop.

Hmm I wasn't prepared for this answer. Well that's true but even if I manage to have 3 SSD's (1 for host and 1 for each VM) would i have the unraid issue? Couldn't simply create two virtual disks that fill the "entire" dedicated SSD?

And how can you lose hardware power? (I'm kind a noob in terms of this sorry)

Can you even play all competetive games on vm:s?

Not sure, but some co-op story games might work no? Since we're talking, in theory, two different OS'
