Acer Updates it’s 3D-capable Laptops with the New Aspire 5740D 3D

March 2nd, 2010 · 15 Comments · General 3D News

It seems that Acer is finally going to address one of the issues they had on their first Acer Aspire 3D-capable laptop – the 5738DG by releasing an updated 3D laptop. The new Acer Aspire 5740D 3D laptop comes with a set of updated hardware, including the most important thing – the video card as the first model was somewhat lacking in that area. Acer Aspire 5740D 3D will be available in different models equipped with Intel Core i3, i5 and even i7 processors and will use ATI’s Mobility Radeon HD 5650 GPU that is much better suited for stereoscopic 3D gaming than the previously used Mobility Radeon 4570. The screen will remain 15.6″ with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels and LED backlight with overlayed passive polarization filter to enable the usage with passive polarized 3D glasses. The new laptop is also going to use DDD’s TriDef software solution to enable stereoscopic 3D support for for 3D games, 3D movies and 3D photos on the laptop. This means that as with the previous first generation laptops when you are using the display in 3D mode by wearing the polarized glasses you’ll be getting half of the horizontal resolution of the screen per eye. Something that may bring some issues with multimedia that uses a lot of small details like for example tiny texts that need to be easily read as with half the horizontal resolution on the 1366×768 screen this might become somewhat of a challenge for you. Anyway, it seems that Acer is moving on the right track with this upgraded model and maybe their next line of 3D-ready laptops will feature a 120Hz LCD screen and come with 3D Vision shutter glasses just like what Asus did with their G51J 3D gaming laptop.
