I’ve already written about the Asus G51J 3D Vision laptop as there was some information regarding it already, but today finally Asus and Nvidia have officially announced the new model which is actually the first consumer laptop with 120Hz LCD display that comes bundled with Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision shutter glasses…

Introduced earlier this year for desktop PCs, NVIDIA 3D Vision technology instantly became the preferred 3D solution for playing computer games, watching movies, or viewing photographs in full resolution stereoscopic 3D. NVIDIA today, along with the world’s leading PC manufacturers, notebook panel manufacturers, and content developers, is pleased to announce the expansion of the NVIDIA 3D Vision ecosystem to include high-definition notebook platforms that integrate advanced 120Hz 3D Vision-capable displays directly into the chassis for on-the-go 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.”

But wait, there is even more interesting info coming from Nvidia around the 3D Vision, it is not just the Asus G51J 3D laptop. It seems that the company has worked closely with display manufacturers, including CPT, LG, CMO, and Samsung, to bring state-of-the-art 120Hz 3D Vision-capable panels to notebook platforms, so we should probaly see other companies with 3D Vision-capable models very soon…

With notebook displays available, PC manufacturers are eager to bring 3D Vision notebooks to market. 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.

I’ll try to get my hands on one of the 3D Vision capable Asus laptops as soon as they become available in order to do a review of how good they implemented the stereoscopic technology in the G51J. It should be available in December in Europe, but in the states it will most likely arrive earlier…
