As Im waiting for the Asus G53... with naked eye 3D technology Im looking around for news on that from time to time. Heres something new I found and like to know whether these information are correct or another fake(s):

Asus has launched its new 3D gaming notebook dubbed as Asus ROG G53SX 3D, that requires no 3D glasses to view 3D content. Asus ROG G53SX 3D is powered by Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GTX 560M graphics with 2GB of dedicated video memory.

Asus ROG G53SX 3D features a 15 inch full HD display, 3D content creation & editing software, 3DTV Play connectivity, THX and EAX 5.0 3D sound and a 10,000 rpm hybrid hard-drive with SSD partition and 5-degree inclined keyboard. Asus ROG G53S also features to split its screen to show both 2D and 3D content.

Asus ROG G53SX 3D price and availability is still to be announced.

A while ago it was claimed to have a z68 chipset like this http://2dayblog.com/2011/06/06/asus-rog-g53sx-laptop-to-have-glassless-3d/ but I think they mixed the originally news containing information on the desktop and G74SX to come to this false information http://www.slashgear.com/asus-rog-g53sx-naked-eye-3d-gaming-notebook-arrives-brings-friends-31155815/ as well as they take picture of G74SX for illustrating information about G53SX thinking were blind or dumm or something like that.

Another actual offer for a model G53SX-A1-C (try google) claims

"G53 gaming notebook utilizes hardware optimized for DirectX 11, with full support for high definition 3D gaming."

and in the specifications area you can read

Display Type 15.6" 3D Ready TFT
LCD Backlight Technology LED backlight
Max Resolution 1920 x 1080 ( Full HD )

what might fit according to the information shown on the CeBit ... .

Somewhere else one claimed to have direct information from Asus that it will be released in the fourth quarter of this year (so should be near).

What do you think / any new information on that?

Yea with a 128-bit 560M in it, its not going to do well at 3D gaming. What were they thinking, the 3GB version is a much better choice.

Youre absolutely right. The Lambo version has one that would be good for that.

But as I understood the 3D uses only a max. 1366 x 768 resolution due the loss of the polarization method. In split screen the needed power is even smaller. So should be powerful enough for that as the 3D model with 120 Hz screen and glasses has the same resolution.

Yea, maybe with the much lower res it might manage playable 3D frame rates. I am still skeptical until I see the tests though.

Another new source http://asia.cnet.com/product/asus-g53sx-core-i7-2670qm-processor-22ghz-8gb-ram-45482542.htm

Most interesting is the availability dated to december.

I already thought that it will have an i7-2670QM as base as the former one is outdated ...

But I´m wondering about the hybrid drive that should have 10000 rpm mentioned above. I wasn´t able to find one. There are some 10000 and 15000 rpm drives but none with hybrid SSD. Maybe another mistake relating to a review that claims the Momentus XT to be as fast as a 10000 rpm drive like this "A single hybrid drive that spins at 7200 RPM is still faster than comparable 10,000 RPM SATA drives in some tests." http://storageeffect.media.seagate.com/category/technology/ or am I wrong?

Buying a new notebook in December is a bad idea.

It's too close to CES 2012 that will surely introduce the Ivy Bridge CPUs and notebooks with the HM75 and HM77 chipsets.

Intel announced during its earnings conference call this week that its Ivy Bridge platform has entered volume production, with the company expecting to begin deliveries to computer manufacturers by the second half of this quarter.

Ivy Bridge will also support ultra high resolution displays (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/09/20/ivy-bridge-to-support-ultra-high-resolution-4096x4096-screens/) and Intel has committed to Thunderbolt support (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/04/14/intel-to-support-both-usb-3-0-and-thunderbolt-in-2012-ivy-bridge-platform/) alongside USB 3.0 in the platform.

CEO Paul Otellini confirmed that Ivy Bridge 22 nm processor volume production has already begun, which is a rather significant achievement as there have been apparently no major hiccups in the implementation of its 3D transistor technology

CES 2012 is January 10th thru 13th at

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Las Vegas Convention Center and World Trade Center
Las Vegas Hilton
The Venetian

@SmogHog

But that doesnt mean you can buy them in January or earlier. It takes some time. And I wont wait that long. I want one lately by end of this year.

I also thought about buying one now and upgrading the 3D screen later. But the G53SX-A1 is no more selectable only -XR1 and -DH71. -XR1 is missing some goodies and -DH71 will be to expensive when upgrading to a ...2760 or ...2860. The SW is not my taste because of the glossy screen. Matte rulez.

I hope the dated december is only valid for Singapur (later than US) as mentioned in the review.

Many thought Sandy Bridge was rushed out the door with alot missing.

Intel is ready this time with a much better product,that being Ivy Bridge and 7 series chipsets.

Within 2 weeks after CES 2011 concluded Sandy Bridge gaming notebooks were being shipped to customers.

I believe Keeper was the 1st member here to get a Sandy Bridge G73SW and it was in mid January 2011.

Why would you think Ivy Bridge notebooks will be any different?

It's all about being first to market,the big bucks and happy stock holders.

If the CPUs and chipsets start shipping to OEMs in November they will have 2 months to get a product to end users.That's more than enough time.

Anyone want to bet on it not being so?

Actual news reporting 2nd quarter for the desktop version

For the mobile version http://lenzfire.com/2011/10/22nm-intel-ivy-bridge-mobile-processor-details-first-exposure-79803/ it should be the same.
