Asus whips out G51J 3D gaming notebook

Asus whips out G51J 3D gaming notebook

| 3D News | Posted: Nov 18, 2009 4:49 pm

Back in January at CES 2009, I spent a bit of time playing with the NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses at the NVIDIA booth. I think the 3D effects that the glasses provide were one of the coolest things that I saw at the show. The active glasses have been available for a while and now that several notebook makers are starting to go 3D, we are seeing the glasses turn up in more places.

Asus announced a new gaming notebook today called the G51J 3D that includes the NVIDIA 3D Vision active glasses system for 3D effects. The notebook has a 120Hz refresh rate LCD that measure 15.6-inches. The NVIDIA 3D Vision system requires a 120Hz refresh rate to operate.

 

The notebook runs an Intel Core i7 CPU and has graphics via an NVIDIA GTX 260M video card. The machine is expected to launch "soon" for about $1700. That is not such a bad price really considering the 3G gaming goodness it offers.
