Toshiba Qosmio X870 3D-capable Gaming Laptop Coming Soon

March 14th, 2012 · No Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Toshiba has announced an upcoming 17.3-inch gaming laptop in the form of Qosmio X870 that will be equipped with a 120Hz LCD panel and support Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology. What is interesting about this announcement is the fact that Toshiba does not yet announce what kind of GPU the laptop will have inside, they just say “Next generation NVIDIA GPUs”, neither they say what will be the CPU inside, just “Latest Intel processors”. This information, along with the fact that the Toshiba Qosmio X870 should be available from Q2 2012 means just one thing, this laptop should most likely be getting the much anticipated and rumored a lot mobile Kepler graphics along with Intel’s new Ivy Bridge mobile platform…

Toshiba Qosmio X870 details:

– Latest Intel processors
– Next generation NVIDIA GPUs
– 17.3″ (43.9cm) TruBrite Full HD screen with LED backlighting (1920x1080p, 16:9, 5ms response time)
– Up to 2TB hard drive or hybrid drive SSD option
– Optional Blu-ray ROM or DVD SuperMulti drives
– Resolution+ upscaling technology
– 4x USB 3.0 including 2x Sleep-and-Charge USB
– HDMI, RGB connectivity
– Gigabit Ethernet LAN
– Bluetooth 4.0
– Dedicated headphone port & microphone port with Sleep-and-Music
– Full HD web camera with Face Recognition
– Red backlit tiled keyboard
– Large clickpad with multi-touch control
– Harman Kardon stereo speakers with Slip Stream technology, SRS Premium Sound 3D

And apart from using a 120Hz Full HD LCD panel, bundles with 3D Vision active shutter glasses, the new mobile gaming solution from Toshiba should also come with HDMI 1.4 support for use with 3D HDTVs and 2D to 3D conversion functionality for DVD movies. It has not been yet revealed if the Toshiba Qosmio X870 laptop will feature a second generation of 3D Vision glasses and if the display will be supporting the 3D Lightboost technology. And considering the fact that Toshiba did not actually have a lot to say about the most important specs of the laptop you’d think that they should’ve at least used the opportunity to talk about these features. So we’ll have to wait for the official release of the laptop to get the full details and meanwhile I’m still wondering what did Toshiba tell us all with this announcement, aside from the fact that they plan to release a new 3D Vision-ready gaming laptop… not much actually.
