World's First Glasses-Free 3D Gaming Laptop

Glasses-Free 3D Gaming Laptop

At Computex in Taipei in last week, ASUS announced a "Naked Eye 3D system", also known as the world's first glasses-free 3D gaming laptop.

"Getting rid of those awkward glasses will be the key to the success or failure of 3D technology," states Titus Hoskins of "Besides the extra expense, many people find wearing the 3D glasses uncomfortable and a real pain to use."

The 15-inch, full HD, ASUS G53SX is powered by a 2nd generation 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%.

Keeping gaming devices cool and quiet is always a challenge, so this laptop is designed with two fans which draw cool air in from the front and then push the warm air out through large twin vents at the back.

Another feature is a "mixed mode" where gamers can view a 2D display and a 3D display, all at the same time. ASUS claims all this can be done without "compromising brightness, contrast or color fidelity, exceeding the output of older 3D technology that relies on glasses."
