Asus G73JW – Gaming Notebook with Bluetooth 3.0
At Computex 2010 Asus demonstrated its G73JW and G73 gaming notebooks. The Asus G73W has 17-inch LCD screen and t looks like it the first laptop with SiBEAM’s 60GHz WirelessHD technology. This seems to be doing what Intel’s WiDi does.
WirelessHD Technology is the next generation wireless digital network technology for wireless HD signal transmission for consumer electronics products. The technology is expected to revolutionize the communication between the notebook and a HD LCD display – for example.
Intel’s WiDi allows to to display the contents of your notebook content on LCD – wirelessly.
The notebook is especially important for the gamers who wish to use the LCD screen for viewing while playing the game and at the same time want the beastly power of a gaming notebook. The details of the notebook are being awaited and it is expected to have top end processors.
We already took a closer look at ASUS’ minty fresh ROG G53 gaming laptop earlier in the week, but it was the outfit’s 17-inch version (the G73JW, predictably) used to showcase a new partnership with SiBEAM. The aforesaid rigs are the world’s first laptops to integrate SiBEAM’s 60GHz WirelessHD technology, essentially doing exactly what Intel’s WiDi does. For those unfamiliar with either technology, it enables the laptop to beam 1080p content directly to a receiver box (that tube you see above, which will be attached via HDMI in theory) from up to 30 meters away. Both machines are slated to be slinging HD sans cabling this Fall, though pricing for the upgraded beasts wasn’t available just yet. Still, we were treated to a demonstration over at the outfit’s Computex booth, and while it was dangerously close to the receiver, HD content still was streaming without a hitch. Granted, we’ve seen nothing but great things from other WirelessHD applications in the past, but it’s still lovely to see it humming along so nicely within a full-fledged computer. Have a look yourself just past the break.
