CES 2023: Asus launches the world's first PCs equipped with 3D screens
After PC gaming, those intended for creators. Decidedly in great shape, Asus has unveiled a range of new PCs cut out for productivity and creation with, for the first time in the world, models equipped with 3D screens.
The day after the presentation of its new ROG gaming PCs, Asus lifted the veil on its computers designed for creativity and productivity.
At the start of the presentation, the three watchwords were clear: power, creativity and innovation. A nice program that begins with a small revolution in the PC universe. For the first time in the world, laptops are equipped with screens capable of displaying 3D images without you needing to wear glasses.
The 3D comes back
CalledASUS Spatial Vision, this technology is based on an OLED screen and allows « immersive 3D experiences on a laptop  ;»writes Asus in its press release. How does it work? Lenticular glass and a camera with eye-tracking technology allow the display to “weave separate images for each eye, resulting in an autostereoscopic 3D image”.
Concretely, users will be able to switch from a 2D view to a 3D view at will. It is primarily intended for creators (such as 3D designers for example) who will be able to see the details of objects or 3D effects directly on the screen, without the need to create physical prototypes. Thanks to the Spatial Vision Hub, users can also watch videos or play games in 3D.
From a technical point of view, these screens also have something to delight the most demanding users. With a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, a response time of 0.2 ms and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, they are among the most attractive screens for this type of product.
Power and creativity
Like the new ROG gaming PCs, the new Asus PC ranges feature state-of-the-art hardware to provide the best possible performance. Almost all of the models feature the latest generation chips from Intel or AMD as well as the GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards unveiled during CES by NVIDIA.
