Maingear Titan 17 is a New 3D Vision-Ready Gaming Laptop

March 30th, 2012 · 9 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Maingear is the next company to announce a high-end 17-inch 3D-capable gaming laptop with support for 3D Vision that you can customize, similar to what Origin PC has recently done with their EON17-X3D 3D Vision Gaming Laptop. And much like the Origin PC’s solution, Maingear also uses the same bulky desktop replacement chassis made by Clevo – the Clevo P270WM, but the new thing here is that you can build the system to use the recently announced GeForce GTX 675M GPU – single or dual cards in SLI. Have in mind though that the GTX 675M is not based on the new Nvidia Kepler architecture and is not produced using the 28nm process, it is just a new revision of the Fermi architecture and the basic specifications are pretty much the same as the ones of GTX 580M. Alternatively you can go for a NVIDIA Quadro 5010M, but that will add quite a lot to the price and it is not an available option for the 3D model. You can of course decide if you want to get the 120Hz 3D-capable Full HD display or stick with a 60Hz model, the 120Hz is required if you plan on being able to play games in stereo 3D mode though and you can add a pair of 3D Vision 2 glasses. The minimum price you’d have to pay for a 3D-capable Maingear Titan 17 system with a pair of 3D vision glasses is $2878 USD with a single GTX 675M and the estimated shipping date is currently set for 4/29/2012 if you order it now.

    I can imagine how much users will be mad with this laptop, because ME3 don´t have good support to 3D, if anyone has played me3 in 3D knows what i am talking.

    Ralf you know about helix’s fix right?

    But yeah it looks terrible without it.

    Cant believe they didnt even test me3 in 3d before making that image.

    Ralf. Did you try helix’s fix for me3? Click the link on my name.

    Well, it is not like they are selling a 3D-capable laptop, right… even though the 3D display is optional upgrade ;)

    They also bundle the laptop with Arkham City and Just Cause 2 which work well in stereo 3D, but they’ve used ME3 on their promo images showing it “like in 3D”… and the official 3D Vision rating for ME3 is Not Recommended.

    I try helix mod yes, but still crap… dont compare to AS revelations for example… Its too bad because ME3 is by far my favorite game and I have to play it in 2d or in 3d and I will shoot the walls only :-)
    Helix is a way good solution, but is only for nvision and the main trick is that he disable lots of 3d stuff… And is not a official patch or something… Thats why I think this advertise will make a lot of people very mad…

    He disables nothing

  • 8 eqzitara // Apr 2, 2012 at 22:07

    Are you sure you arent using tridef or something?
    I dont see anything disabled.

  • 9 Ralf // Apr 3, 2012 at 23:12

    I use tridef too, actually i like more tridef tham nvision, but in ME3 the Helix makes a good job, but when i play with helix mod i seens like some 3d stuff was disable in order to prevent ghosting etc… i am not a expert, but that was the impression i have.
    I think the main problem is the computer being sold with this advertise, ME3 don´t official support 3D, helix mod is for any one who wants to go after a solution and find it, but if you are not a regular player and don´t have lots of time to play, you just want to install and play, don´t want to go after a solution and expend time on something that the developers should make.
