MSI is Now Shipping Multi-touch and Stereo 3D-capable All-in-One PC

September 20th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Other S3D Tech


The new MSI Wind Top 2420 3D is apparently the first All-in-One PC that offers stereo 3D support and that also has a Multi-touch capable touchscreen integrated. The PC is equipped with 24-inch Full HD 1080p 3D-capable 120Hz LED backlit LCD panel, and has an integrated Intel Core i7 CPU and whatis interesting the ATI-based Radeon HD 5730 DirectX 11-capable discrete graphics card. We got a hint about that model a while ago thanks to iZ3D who listed some information about it on their website, so this means the AIO PC will be actually the first to offer stereoscopic 3D capabilities with shutter glasses and using ATI-based GPU thanks to the iZ3D driver. There are still some details unknown, but since the AE2420 3D-046US 3D-capable PC is already available for same from today in North America, we are probably not going to have to wait too much before someone gets it for a review or buys it and shares more information on the stereoscopic 3D implementation and capabilities it offers.

Amazon already has the MSI AE2420 3D-046US AIO PC listed with a price of $1,799.99 USD. The configuration seems quite Ok for multimedia use like movies and photos in 3D and a little gaming in stereo 3D mode, but the Radeon HD 5730 graphics card is not the best choice for primary gaming solution even when not in stereo 3D mode, let alone for playing comfortably games in S3D mode with high-details and with Full HD resolution.

Stereoscopic 3D News from CeBIT 2010 Currently Held in Germany

March 3rd, 2010 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Events


CeBIT is a tradeshow for the digital industry held each year in Hannover, Germany and you can consider it to be something like the European alternative of CES. CeBIT 2010 is currently being held (March 2nd – March 6th) and there are already some interesting S3D news and products being shown or announced during the expo. So here is in brief some information about the stereoscopic 3D-capable products that might get your attention and that will soon be available commercially, so that they can be bought…

Aiptek is showing probably one of the smallest and cheapest 3D camcorders that will soon be available on the market, it can record videos in stereoscopic 3D format at VGA (640×480) resolution and also take still pictures in S3D. The company also showed a 3D-capable autostereoscopic (no glasses needed) digital picture frame where you can display the 3D photos you’ve taken with the 3D camera. Both products should be available on the market in a few months with a recommended end user price of 199 Euro (roughly $270 USD). Here is a short video of both products in action at CeBIT.

ASUS unveiled a new supposedly 23-inch 3D-capable 120Hz LCD screen named Asus VG236H and also showed their upcoming 27-inch 3D-ready LCD monitor which we’ve already seen at CES – Asus PG276H. Both of them are offer Full HD resolution and support stereoscopic 3D active shutter glasses like Nvidia’s 3D Vision. Visitors can also see the first 3D Vision-ready gaming laptop – the Asus G51J 3D, but that is old news already as it is currently available on the market and you can buy it if you want to.

MSI is currently demonstrating a 24-inch All-In-One PC that uses a 120Hz Full HD panel with LED backlight to offer stereoscopic 3D support when used with active shutter glasses like for example Nvidia’s 3D Vision. But it seems that MSI has taken things even further by providing touch capabilities to the screen, so you’ll get both touch-capable and 3D-ready display with this computer. This seems to be a prototype though as MSI is not talking much about specs, not to mention that there is still not even an official product name for this 3D AIO PC mentioned anywhere. Another interesting thing that can be seen at CeBIT from MSI is their first supposedly 3D-capable gaming notebook – MSI GT660, although details about the stereo 3D support are still a bit vague. MSI seems to be focusing mostly on the audio provided by Dynaudio and the specs of the laptop than to clarify if it really has a 120Hz LCD panel and will support if it will support 3D Vision for example.

NVIDIA is yet again teasing us with working Fermi cards (GeForce GTX480) and with working setups utilizing the upcoming 3D Vision Surround technology which will allow you to play with up to 3 monitors or projectors in stereoscopic 3D mode.

If you see something else related to stereoscopic 3D shown at CeBIT please drop me a line through the contact form of the website to add it here in the list with the other products…
