As the first notebook capable of producing realistic 3D visuals in games and videos, the new ASUS G51J 3D is designed to deliver a truly immersive gaming and multimedia experience to gamers everywhere. Equipped with NVIDIA 3D Vision and bundled with specially designed 3D glasses, the ASUS G51J 3D—which sports an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M with 1GB DDR3 video memory—delivers 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 bespoke 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 discerning gamers who enjoy gaming-on-the-move.

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 delivers stereoscopic images with clarity, brightness and depth-of-field (DOP) 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, amounting to a total of up to 120 images at any given time. Gamers can experience total immersion into their games from what were previously flat 2D worlds, to true-to-life 3D. 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.



"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!"

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.

A Juggernaut of Power: Multitasking and Gaming Performance
Powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processor for multitasking muscle on-the-move, the ASUS G51J 3D features four dedicated physical cores working in tandem with the operating system and applications for additional performance. It allows users to utilize and launch multiple applications, and to enjoy high definition multimedia and processor-intensive games effortlessly.

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 or exceed their expectations. ASUS' engineers have cleverly circumvented the thermal and placement issues that typically arise from fitting an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M into a 15.6-inch notebook. With 1GB DDR3 video memory onboard, the ASUS G51J 3D attained a 3DMark06 score of well over 11,000, a significant leap from other 15-inch to 16-inch notebooks in the market today.

So it's hot and loud, but it works? There's only so much you can do, no matter how "clever" your engineers are. Furthermore, how big of a brick is this thing tethered to? 260M is 75W in itself. Tack on your CPU, chipset, dual hard drives and the rest of your electronics, factor in efficiency, and I'd peg you at a 150W+ adapter.

Might as well make it twice as thick, twice as cool, twice as quiet and call it a desktop replacement. No one in their right mind is going to carry this thing around, much less with a 6-cell battery to power all of the above.

Intel, you should have given nVidia license to produce these chipsets. HybridPower would be this behemoth's saving grace...

A better innovation would be a laptop with an IPS LCD panel instead of some overdriven Twisted Nematic LCD crap panel.

These units run fairly quiet and don't get too hot. I own the previous model.

Also it isn't really a full blown GTX260.

The 6 cell won't do well for gaming but will do over 2hrs of normal use. The 9 cell should do three. The power brick is 120w.

I agree on the last point 100% would be very nice.

mobile 260's are in fact another G92 variant, so its more like an 8800GT than a GTS260

Granted, but your model is a C2D with a P45, no? Both of those chips have better power consumption characteristics under load than the hardware this thing carries. I'm aware that it's not a full-blown GTX260, but the power consumption stats I quoted were indeed correct for the 260M model. You've also got dual SSDs versus 7,200 RPM conventional drives, thus further throwing off the battery life statistics.

If they continue to utilize the previous 120W adapter, this will likely end up as an Apple-esque design, insofar that it cannot operate at full load without the battery installed.

I don't mean to rag on this notebook (well, kinda), I just think that the pursuit of a true mobile gaming rig is pretty frivolous until the mobile i5 and accompanying hardware is released. Also, mid-range mobile HD5K chips are going to blow this rebadged G92 junk out of the water around that same time of the year. I'm saving my next laptop purchase till H1 2010...
