First 3D Vision Notebook Arrives Next Month

Nvidia and Asus jointly announced today that the very first 3D Vision notebook will debut soon: the Asus G51J3d. The notebook includes a 120 Hz 3D Vision-capable panel and a pair of 3D Vision active-shutter glasses. Aaus said that the laptop will hit store shelves in early December; other OEMs--such as Clevo and more--will produce 3D Vision laptops in 2010.

"We are extremely excited about bringing the first NVIDIA 3D Vision notebook to market," said P. Wang, Corporate Vice President & General Manager, Notebook Business Unit, System Business Group at ASUS. "NVIDIA and ASUS have a passion for gaming and cutting-edge technology, and this is another example of how great companies working together can deliver awesome new platforms to our combined customers."

The technical specs were short on details, only providing a few tidbits of information. The Asus laptop will have an Intel Core i7 @ 1.6 GHz, a GeForcce GTX 260M GPU, and a 15.6-inch screen running at a native 1366 x 768 resolution. The laptop can also provide up to 4 GB of RAM, and storage options ranging between 250 GB and 500 GB. For optical drives, Asus offers both DVD and Blu-ray.

Nvidia's 3D Vision technology is a combination of wireless, high-tech glasses, an IR emitter with a wide range, and software that transforms PC games into "full stereoscopic 3D experiences." Resident Evil 5, Borderlands, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Star Trek D-A-C already support 3D Vision. Nvidia claims that more than 400 PC games are compatible right out of the box.

    I'm not quite sure I understand the point in a "3D vision" laptop. I guess it's an excuse to wear those sweet 3D glasses in public though...

    I have purchased Nvidia Bundle ( 22'monitor + glasses). After checked out I feel little bit regret, I feel like I throw away £400 just for a "little" graphic improvement which still be on experiment and has not been supported by any game maker yet.

    However, when I receive my package, now I have another regret. I can not turn back to play game like normal anymore. I can not play any game which not compatible with Nvidia vision any more. And now whenever I buy a new game, I always have to check if they have good review by nvidia vision forum first.

    You must try it for yourself, 3D vision is really great. It worth the money.
