ASUS has officially unveiled the first notebook to use NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision. The G51J 3D notebook uses a 120Hz LCD and NVIDIA’s special glasses to add spatial depth to games like Borderlands or Arkham Asylum that support it. The 1.6GHz Intel Core i7 and the GeForce GTX 260M graphics combined make the 15.6-inch notebook run at its native resolution of 1,366×768 pixels. The usual practice for ASUS is to provide a range of possible options instead of concrete specifications or pricing information. The memory can reach 4GB of RAM and the hard disk drive can vary between 250GB and500GB. Options for optical drives are DVD and Blu-ray.
The G51J 3D notebook will be available together with the necessary transmitter and the special glasses. Expected date is in early December. Other companies are also planning to have their 3D notebooks available next year, such as MSI, as well as contractors like Clevo.
