Computex 2011: Nvidia introduces wired 3D Vision glasses and new GeForce GPUs
Press release, June 3; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 3 June 2011]

Nvidia has announced, at Computex 2011, a new addition to its 3D Vision product family: Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses. The new glasses make the 3D PC experience more affordable at US$99, and offer the same 3D quality and features of 3D Vision wireless glasses. The company also announced its latest mobile GPU – The GeForce GTX 560M at the show.

Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses, which feature Nvidia's advanced active-shutter technology, allow gamers and 3D enthusiasts to access the broadest selection of high-quality 3D content available today, including more than 525 full-HD 3D games, Blu-ray 3D movies, and streaming 3D video from Youtube and 3DVisionLive.com. Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses also support more than 65 different 3D Vision monitors, notebooks, and projectors, giving users complete flexibility in configuring their 3D Vision PCs.

Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses include a 10-foot USB 2.0 cable for direct, easy connection to a 3D Vision PC or notebook. This makes it ideal for LAN gaming events, as it does not require batteries and the cable can easily be secured to a PC with an optional computer lock to minimize theft.

Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses are expected to be available beginning in late-June 2011 from the Nvidia Store, as well as from channel retailers.

The GeForce GTX 560M graphics processor delivers a no-compromise gaming experience at full 1080p resolution in the hottest new DirectX 11 titles. For the first time, OEMs will also be offering GeForce GTX gaming GPUs with Nvidia Optimus technology.

Available only with Nvidia GPUs, the Optimus technology enables extra-long battery life by automatically switching on and off the GPU so that it runs only when needed. The smart convenience of NVIDIA Optimus technology is designed into over 80% of GeForce 500M series notebooks and is used by every major notebook vendor.

In addition, the CPU also features technologies such as Nvidia 3D Vision, Nvidia PhysX, Nvidia Cuda, Nvidia SLI and Nvidia Verde notebook drivers.

For thin-and-light notebooks, Nvidia also refreshed its entry-level GeForce GT 500M GPUs with the arrival of the new GeForce GT 520MX GPU. GeForce GT 520MX offers better performance, wider support and a more advanced feature set than integrated graphics and offers a step forward from the existing GeForce GT 520M GPU.

Alienware and Toshiba will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GTX 560M and Optimus technology. Asustek, Clevo, Micro-Star International (MSI) and others will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GTX 560M. Asustek, Samsung and others will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GT 520MX.
