3D gaming is already here — for PCs

While hardware makers such as Sony prepare their consoles for the planned launch of 3DTV this summer, PC gamers looking forward to three-dimensional gaming can already get into
the action.The Asus G51 3D gaming notebook (available on Monday for $1,949) is powered by an Nvidia 3D Vision graphics package and bundled with wireless “active shutter” 3-D glasses that deliver realistic stereoscopic images at full resolution.

Basically, the 15.6-inch 3D screen offers 120-hertz motion acceleration (similar to many LCD HDTVs), and works with the laptop’s graphics processing unit driver to double the 60-frames-per-second video signal, delivering up to 120 images at any given time to each eye.

The G51 can also turn 2D content into 3-D, including support for nearly 400 PC games out of the box, such as Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, Capcom’s Resident Evil 5, 2K Games’s Borderlands and Eidos/Warner Bros. Interactive’s Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Tech specs of this 64-bit Windows 7-based laptop include an Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M graphics card and Altec Lansing speakers with EAX Advanced HD 4.0 audio for 3D sound effects.
