NVIDIA today, along with the leading PC manufacturers announced the expansion of the NVIDIA 3D Vision ecosystem to include high-definition notebook platforms that integrate 120Hz 3D Vision-capable displays directly into the chassis for on-the-go 3D.
Introduced earlier this year for desktop PCs, NVIDIA 3D Vision technology is a 3D solution for playing computer games, watching movies, or viewing photographs in full resolution stereoscopic 3D.
"We are extremely excited about bringing the first NVIDIA 3D Vision notebook to market," said PC 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."
NVIDIA 3D Vision technology is a combination of wireless glasses, a wide-range IR emitter, and software that transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D experiences. More than 400 PC games work out of the box with NVIDIA 3D Vision, and recent games such as Resident Evil 5, Borderlands, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Star Trek D-A-C.
NVIDIA has worked closely with display manufacturers, including CPT, LG, CMO, and Samsung, to bring 120Hz 3D Vision-capable panels to notebook platforms. These new displays provide 2D capability but also deliver 3D, with support for high definition playback of 3D games, movies, and photographs.
Notebooks will include the 120Hz 3D Vision-capable panel and bundle 3D Vision active-shutter glasses. ASUS is readying the first ever NVIDIA 3D Vision notebook - the ASUS G51J 3D - for worldwide release in early December, followed by other OEMs in 2010, including Clevo and others.
