Labels: , , , ,

Remember the 15.6-inch G51J-3D gaming notebook from Asus? It looks like they're set to launch a 17.3-inch 3D gaming notebook in the future as well - possibly the G72GX that we heard way back in November of last year. The price wasn't mentioned, but Asus is looking to release this notebook in Q3 of this year. The notebook itself will have a 3D-capable LCD display along with Nvidia's 3D Vision system, so you'll need the 3D shutter glasses to view the 3D-ness.

It's just a rumour right now, so don't be surprised if Apple sticks by Intel. AMD would give Apple more profit - which is all they're really after - but Intel does have the upcoming Light Peak technology that Apple may have influenced. Of course, with the AMD chipsets these Apple notebooks / desktops will also get ATI discrete graphics. Let's see what happens over the next year.
