Can the world's first naked eye gaming laptop finally push 3D technology into the mainstream?
(PRWEB) June 10, 2011
ASUS, with their Republic of Gamers (ROG) laptops, have constantly been pushing the boundaries of computer gaming. Now, at the latest Computex in Taipei, they have created some collective buzz around one of their latest offerings - the ASUS G53SX, the world's first "glasses-free" 3D gaming laptop. Asus is calling this a Naked Eye 3D system, which will feature some unique technology with the ability to instantly convert existing 2D visuals into glasses-free 3D content.
This 3D laptop even has a "mixed mode" where you can view in one window, a 2D display and a 3D display - all at the same time. And Asus, in a recent press release, is claiming all this can be accomplished without "compromising brightness, contrast or color fidelity, exceeding the output of older 3D technology that relies on glasses."
This glasses-free technology and devices may just be the push 3D needs at the moment, especially with gamers where the jury is still out. It could also conceivably open up a much larger consumer base or marketplace for this new technology and finally bring 3D into the mainstream.
"Getting rid of those awkward glasses will be the key to the success or failure of 3D technology," states Titus Hoskins, a former teacher who now runs http://www.3D-gaminglaptops.com, a highly ranked site on 3D gaming laptops. "Besides the extra expense, many people find wearing the 3D glasses uncomfortable and a real pain to use."
The 15-inch Full HD G53SX also sports some other ground-breaking features and specs, which will turn more than a few heads in the gaming world. The laptop is powered by a 2nd generation (Sandy Bridge) Intel® Quad Core i7 CPU and discrete DirectX® 11 compatible Nvidia GeForce® GTX 560M graphics, which has a massive 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. It also has a solid state hybrid drive at 10,000 rpm, which can cut down boot times by up to 52%. As you probably know, most high-end gaming laptops currently run at 7200 rpm speeds.
In addition, this ROG gaming laptop comes with a whole suite of 3D content creation and editing software, which will let owners use advanced authoring tools and they will also have 3DTV Play connectivity. Sound performance will be increased with both THX (next generation surround sound) and EAX 5.0 3D, giving gamers up to 128 additional sound effects at once when compared to conventional gaming notebooks.
The laptop's design also includes two fans which will draw cool air in from the front and then push the warm air out through large twin exhausts or vents at the rear of the device. As gamers know, keeping any high-performance machine cool and quiet, are two of the biggest obstacles to enjoyable gaming. Asus made devices have had great success in this area and hopefully the G53SX won't be an exception.
However, it is the Naked Eye or glasses-free 3D feature which makes the ASUS G53SX a true groundbreaker. This new technology opens up a whole new spectrum for 3D gaming laptops without the glasses. It could also pave the way for a whole new industry for Naked Eye 3D gaming laptops and other devices. Regardless, the ASUS G53SX will definitely have many gamers smiling, look ma - no glasses.
