The Asus Republic of Gamers G53SX Naked Eye 3D notebook, currently on display at Computex, seems to use software to create the effect without a special screen.

Asus is reportedly showcasing the world's first glasses-free laptop, the Republic of Gamers G53SX Naked Eye 3D, this week at Computex. The 3D tech is backed by the laptop's 15-inch Full HD screen, a Sandy Bridge quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia's discrete GeForce GTX 560M GPU (with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM), a Z68 motherboard, and a solid state hybrid drive with an SSD partition that runs around 10,000-RPM.

The 3D imagery is likely generated using a software solution, as reports claim that the laptop uses "unique technology" that converts 2D images into glasses-free 3D visuals. There's even indication that the device can enter into a "mixed mode" offering one window sporting 2D graphics and another in 3D -- both running on the screen at the same time without a major drop in framerate.

"The unique technology works with a whole catalog of games and multimedia content, even instantly converting existing 2D visuals into glasses-free 3D," the official press release reports. "Advanced research has also resulted in mixed mode, where one window can display in 2D while another shows in 3D, both on-screen at once. This is achieved without compromising brightness, contract or color fidelity, exceeding the output of older 3D technology that relies on glasses."

On a visual level, the laptop drips with gaming goodness, designed with the clean, angular lines of a stealth fighter "and the power to match." The notebook's chassis also features a thermal design that uses twin fans to draw cool air from the front of the case and twin rear exhausts to expel warm air out the back. The 5-degree inclined keyboard was even designed to be gamer-friendly with backlit keys (woot) and a metallic, non-flexing base.

"The ROG G53SX Naked Eye 3D ships with a full suite of 3D content creation and editing software, giving users access to advanced authoring tools, including 3DTV Play connectivity," the company added. "Sound is rendered in THX and EAX 5.0 3D for pristine spatial sound in gaming and other applications, with up to 128 additional sound effects at once compared to traditional gaming notebooks." ... 35726.html

More information regarding this particular laptop will supposedly be released sometime this month, so stay tuned.
