Glasses-Free 3D Hits Notebooks With Toshiba Qosmio Laptops
Manufacturing sources in Taiwan in April tipped the launch of glasses-free 3D notebooks in the second half of this year, and an imminent launch next month of the Qosmio F750 3D has gone to verify this.
Toshiba’s technology for 3D uses a lenticular 3D screen to send different images to the left and right eyes, though eye-tracking software linked to the webcam cleverly tracks the viewer’s movements to deliver 3D images from more than one, stationary angle.
Spec-wise, the Qosmio F750 3D is very similar to the current F750 that is listed at $1,699. Each sport Intel Core i7 processors, Nvidia GeForce graphics card, 3D upscaling and conversion, Harman Kardon speakers, Blu-ray drives and a mix of connectivity options including USB 3.0.
The notable difference is the glasses-free 3D screen, as well as the 120Hz refresh rate, a 640GB hard drive (rather than 750GB) and 6GB DDR3 RAM (rather than 8GB).
The Qosmio F750 3D is set to go on sale next month in Europe initially.
