3D-enabled notebooks are becoming hot new releases this year, but this upcoming Asus laptop will have the all-important factor to distinguish it from the rest -- a glasses-free 3D experience.
Called the G53SX Naked Eye 3D, the notebook can convert “existing 2D visuals into glasses-free 3D,” supposedly without any compromises in brightness, contrast, or color fidelity, says the press release. The notebook will come with a Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU and the discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M GPU with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM, enough horsepower to “allow titles such as StarCraft II to run at high resolution with anti-aliasing turned all the way up.” To make the notebook even speedier, Asus will be equipping it with a SSD hybrid drive that will supposedly cut down boot times by as much as 52%.
As for the design, the G53SX will come with a 5-degree inclined keyboard, rubber-coated palm rests, and dual rear exhausts for heat dissipation. Unfortunately, the actual screen size of the laptop is not explicitly listed in the press release.
Meanwhile, Asus will be offering the G74Sx 3D notebook as well, which will have much the same specs as the G53SX sans the glasses-free 3D capabilities. To compensate, this 17-inch Full HD notebook will offer Nvidia 3D Vision for 3D playback.
Release dates for either gaming notebooks have not been announced, but expect to hear more details sometime this June.
