A Bit More About the Sony VAIO VAIO F Series 3D Laptops

March 10th, 2011 · 7 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

If you remember, about two months ago, during CES 2011 Sony has announced some interesting new 3D-capable products and among them was the new Sony VAIO F Series 3D laptops. And as these products are nearing their appearance on the market there are already some samples available for testing, and today I just managed to get one of these F Series laptops and more specifically the model VPCF21Z1E/BI to do a quick review. My first impressions from the laptop are quite positive, it has a great Full HD 3D display (the best LCD panel for laptops available from Sony) and apparently the laptop uses 3D Vision technology, but without relying on Nvidia’s shutter glasses (the first such combination), but instead uses Sony’s own shutter glasses – the same used for their Bravia 3D HDTVs. I’ve already mentioned more than once that Sony’s shutter glasses are probably one of the best designed and performing shutter glasses available at the moment, so the combination with the 3D Vision software and the great display might turn out great, but that is yet to be confirmed in the next few days. What may be a bit of a turn off for some more demanding gamers is the fact that the laptop comes with GeForce GT 540M GPU which although being quite good for a mobile graphics chip is not as good as the high-end gaming solutions that Nvidia has, especially combined with the native 1080p resolution of the 3D display, but I’ll do some testing with games to see what level of performance can this laptop offer. So stay tuned for the review… ;)
