Toshiba has rolled out its first Qosmio-branded all-in-one, designed to be a capable multimedia and gaming machine. The Qosmio PX30t (pdf) is powered by a choice of Intel third- and fourth-generation Core-series processors that also support Ultra HD out capabilities in the fourth-gen Core i7 quad-core variant. The 23-inch all-in-one also sports a HDMI-in port, allowing for the connection of a console with support for audio through its built-in DTS Studio Sound-capable Harman/Kardon speakers.
Toshiba is rolling out a number of notebook introductions on Tuesday, with the Qosmio X875 and X875 3D the latest among them. The flagship notebooks are meant for gamers and/or video editors as well as other demanding users. They get Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M GPUs with 3GB of dedicated video memory.
Toshiba has introduced a new gaming notebook, the Qosmio X870. The device features a 17.3-inch display with 1920x1080 resolution and 3D capabilities, powered by Intel processors and an unnamed NVIDIA GPU with 3GB of dedicated memory.
NVIDIA picked its GeForce LAN 6 tourney to unveil the second generation of its 3D glasses hardware. 3D Vision 2 helps cure a common weakness of 3D by producing a twice as bright picture and improving the color saturation over traditionally washed out 3D video. The lenses are also 20 percent larger, immersing the gamer more in the image, and are made of softer materials that fit better with headphones.
Toshiba on Tuesday prepped the launch of its glasses-free 3D Qosmio notebook for the US. Americanized as the F755, the 15.6-inch notebook should reach the US on August 16. Pricing starts high at $1,699 but outfits it with a quad 2GHz Core i7, 6GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, and a GeForce GT 540M for the crucial video component.
Toshiba has introduced what it says is the first glasses-free 3D notebook, the Qosmio F750 3D. The 15.6-inch notebook uses the webcam to adjust the lenticular display based on a user's face and position of the eyes. It tracks the user's head movements to maintain the effect as the owner changes stance.
NVIDIA was the first to start off its Computex unveilings in earnest late Sunday by launching two notebook graphics chipsets and 3D glasses. The GeForce GTX 560M headlines the group and is designed to bring high-end gaming to moderately sized notebooks without hurting battery life. Its 192 processing cores, 192-bit memory bus, and 775MHz core clock speed give it enough speed to play games at 1080p, but as the first design with Optimus live graphics switching from major PC builders, it should still provide reasonable battery life by dropping to Intel video with less demanding tasks.
Toshiba has claimed a technology breakthrough with the first notebook to have a color-changing shell. Its Qosmio T750 uses a technique developed by Tourť Meihan, known as Picasus, that shifts the color from blue to purple depending on the viewing angle. While similar to the effect of chameleon paint on cars from TVR and others, Picasus doesn't rely on metal at all and instead uses several polyester laminate layers, each of which in turn has thousands of nano-sized layers to create a metallic, shimmering look.
Toshiba has demonstrated a new 3D display panel that eliminates the need for users to wear special glasses. The technology, which is featured in the company's prototype Qosmio notebook, reportedly overcomes viewing-angle problems by tracking the user's eyes with a webcam and compensating for the change in position.
Toshiba today upgraded the Qosmio X500 to take advantage of NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 460M. The upgraded 1.5GB graphics chip gives a significant performance lift over the 360M and better helps drive the 18.4-inch display. Among the boosts are native DirectX 11 game support and better GPGPU tasks.
