Reviews of 3D LCD Monitors and 3D-capable Laptops at the Blog

April 17th, 2011 · 8 Comments · General 3D News

I’ve decided to make a short list of the 3D LCD monitors as well as the 3D mobile computers that I’ve reviewed so far here on the blog in order to make it a bit easier to find them. I’m doing some reorganization here on the blog, but it takes time and some tries in order to make all the information more accessible and easier to find. I’ll also include the models that I still haven’t been able to review, but I do plan to test at some point if possible in order to compare them with the competition (the list is not complete with all 3D-capable products of course), so it will be easier for you to decide on what best fits your needs and requirements.

3D LCD Monitors:

27″ Acer HN274H
23″ Planar SA2311W
24″ Asus VG236HE
23″ LG W2363D
24″ Acer GD245HQ/GD235HZ
– 24″ Acer GN245HQ
– 24″ ViewSonic V3D241wm
– 23″ Alienware OptiX AW2310
– 24″ BenQ XL2410T
– 24″ Lenovo L2363dwA

3D-capable Laptops:

17″ Sony VAIO F Series 3D
17″ Asus G73JW ROG 3D
17″ HP Envy 17 3D
15.6″ Asus G51J-3D
15.6″ Acer 5745DG
15.6″ Acer AS-5738DG
– 17″ Alienware M17x-r3
– 17″ Clevo P170HM3
– 15.6″ Asus G53JW

In the future I’ll also try to expand the coverage of 3D-capable products reviewed here, so that it will be easier for you, the readers to make the right choice. But it isn’t always easy to get a sample of all products for a review, actually it is quite hard most of the time, and I don’t have unlimited resources in order to buy all the products that I want to review. So any help and support is appreciated.

Nvidia Announced GeForce GTX 480M, is it Soon Coming to 3D Laptops?

May 25th, 2010 · 2 Comments · General 3D News

Today Nvidia introduced the new GeForce GTX 480M GPU for Notebooks based on the new Fermi architecture that was first introduced into the desktop cards – GTX 470 and GTX 480. This new GPU comes with 352 CUDA cores (stream processors) that should be able to provide quite high performance for a laptop, so it is no wonder that Nvidia calls this “World’s Fastest Notebook GPU”. Of course the new GTX 480M GPU will offer DirectX 11 support and high tessellation performance, supports PhysX and CUDA, along with 3D Vision support of course. And now the big question is are we soon going to see a 3D-capable laptop that uses this new GeForce GTX 480M GPU in action. So far we only have the Asus G51J-3D with GTX260M and the Asus G51Jx-3D with 360M GPUs that are equipped with 120Hz panels and come with 3D Vision active shutter glasses for mobile stereo 3D gaming.

The specificatins of the new GeForce GTX 480M GPU

CUDA Cores – 352 (stream processors)
Graphics Clock – 425 MHz
Processor Clock – 850 MHz
Texture Fill Rate – 18.7 billions/sec
Memory Clock – 1200 MHZ
Standard Memory Configuration – GDDR5
Memory Interface Width – 256 bit
Memory Bandwidth – 76.8 GB/sec
CUDA performance – 897 gigaflops
HDMI 1.4 support – Yes
7.1 channelHD audio on HDMI – Yes
PCI Express 2.0 support – Yes
SLI Ready – Yes
Package – MXM board

The first partner to introduce mobile system based on the new GeForce GTX 480M is Clevo with the high-power gaming laptop expected to be available somewhere in mid-June. Now if you remember Clevo was one of the first OEMs that is supposed to have gaming laptops with 120Hz LCD panels ready sometime this year and if you ask me what better time than this to have a high-end gaming laptop with a GeForce GTX 480M GPU and 3D Vision for playing games in stereo 3D mode (maybe they were waiting just for this moment?). But we shall have to wait a bit more to see if Clevo will have a chassis that combines 480M with 3D capabilities or not, it is quite possible as well that we’ll have to wait to get alternatives to the currently available Asus with a 120Hz panel, but hope never dies. Oh yes, you’ll also be able to have two 480M cards in SLI into a laptop and that should really be impressive in a lot of ways and even better for stereo 3D gaming… ;)
