NVIDIA 3D Vision power means you can frag noobs in your favorite shooter in 3D glory with the G51J 3D notebook.
There are two different ways to get 3G content onto your notebook. You can use passive glasses and software to do it or you can use hardware and active glasses. The passive system is used by Acer with its 3D notebook
and Asus has announced a new notebook today called the Asus G51J 3D
that uses active glasses.
The new Asus notebook uses the NVIDIA 3D Vision active 3D glasses to turn games into 3D frag fests. I tested out the NVIDIA system briefly at CES in Las Vegas last year and it works fantastically for 3D gaming. The catch is that the system requires a LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate.
As you can guess, the LCD on the G51J 3D notebook has the needed 120Hz refresh rate and the screen measures 15.6-inches. Graphics are handled by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M with 1GB of DDR3 RAM. The rig also runs a robust Intel Core i7 CPU and will launch "soon" for about $1,828 ($US1,700) plus the markup we expect at retail.
