Tay Choon Song, senior manager of marketing services and e-business, Toshiba Computer Systems Division, says that the first Qosmio G50 was announced in 2008 and this year, the company's latest Qosmio product lineup are based on innovations, quality and style to differentiate from the competitors. The new Qosmio series come with premium harman kardon speakers, Nvidia 3D Vision and glasses-free 3D technology. According to Tay, it took the company two years to fine-tune the glasses-free 3D technology for consumers.
The Toshiba Qosmio F750 is equipped with second generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 8 GB DDR3 memory, up to 640GB hard disk, Blu-ray drive and sports a 15.6-inch full high definition (HD) glasses-free 3D display.
According to the company, the Toshiba Qosmio F750 uses the proprietary"face-tracking" function via the webcam and "Active Lens" to provide the glasses-free 3D effect. The laptop can upconvert 2D to 3D as well as simultaneously display 3D and 2D content in separate windows on a single screen. Simply press the 3D button located above the keyboard to turn the 3D on/off. The face-tracking only tracks one user at a time, though more than one user could also see the 3D glasses-free, the one who has been tracked by the software would get the optimized experience.
Pricing details have yet to be released though if you are looking to get this powerful gaming machine with the glasses-free 3D technology, the Qosmio F750 will only be available in August.
