Gaming Just Got Real — Introducing the ASUS G51J 3D Gaming Notebook

ASUS Launches the World’s First Notebook Utilising NVIDIA® 3D Vision for Truly Immersive Gaming
  • 18 November, 2009 12:08

<p>Sydney, Australia, 18 November 2009 - The new ASUS G51J 3D is designed to deliver a truly immersive 3D gaming and multimedia experience to gamers everywhere, with NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ and specially designed 3D glasses. The ASUS G51J 3D sports an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 260M with 1GB DDR3 video memory, to deliver adrenaline-pumping, edge-of-your-seat visuals anytime, anywhere. EAX and CMSS audio technology further enhances in-game immersion, delivering crystal clear sound and compelling environment audio effects through Altec Lansing® speakers. Powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 processor and 64-bit Windows® 7 operating system, the ASUS G51J 3D is the weapon of choice for serious gamers.</p>
<p>Immersive Gaming: Bridging the Gap between the Virtual and Reality
Equipped with NVIDIA® 3D Vision™, the ASUS G51J 3D delivers ultra-realistic graphics that come to life before the user. A pair of 3D Vision™ active-shutter glasses coupled with a wide-range infra-red emitter, deliver stereoscopic images with clarity, brightness and depth-of-field at full resolution without any viewing angle restrictions. The GPU driver and a 120Hz 3D panel render each scene twice, delivering up to 60 images evenly to each eye. With up to 400 PC games that work out-of-the-box with 3D Vision, gamers can experience a whole new dimension of gaming never-before seen, with recently released games such as Resident Evil® 5, Borderlands™, World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King™, Batman®: Arkham Asylum™ and Star Trek® D-A-C.</p>
<p>“NVIDIA® is excited about the world’s first 3D Vision notebook coming from ASUS,” said Phil Eisler, General Manager of 3D Vision business unit at NVIDIA®. “The ASUS G51J 3D notebook will set the standard by which gaming and 3D notebooks will be judged. Congratulations to ASUS for achieving this monumental milestone!”</p>
<p>Complementing the immersive visual effects is EAX Advanced HD 4.0 3D audio technology and CMSS surround sound. EAX Advanced HD 4.0 audio technology enhances in-game environments and scenarios by providing corresponding three dimensional sound effects. It can provide up to 64 additional sound effects from its sound library and produces ultra-realistic spatial effects for more than 300 supported games. Together with high fidelity Altec Lansing® speakers, the ASUS G51J 3D delivers a gaming and multimedia audio experience that no other notebook can match.</p>
<p>A Juggernaut of Power: Multitasking and Gaming Performance
The ASUS G51J 3D is powered by the latest Intel® Core™ i7 mobile processor for powerful performance. It allows users to launch multiple applications and enjoy high definition multimedia and processor-intensive games effortlessly.</p>
<p>Set to Stun: Mind-blowing Graphics at Incredible Speeds
The main area of concern for any self-respecting gamer when it comes to a gaming notebook is graphics and the ASUS G51J 3D is designed specifically to meet and exceed expectations of a gaming notebook. ASUS engineers have circumvented the thermal and placement issues that typically could arise from fitting the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 260M into a 15.6-inch notebook. The ASUS G51J 3D achieved a 3DMark®06 score over 11,000*; a significant increase from other 15-inch to 16-inch notebooks in the market today.</p>
