3D Ready:

These are usually suffixed by -3D in the product code.

Your notebook has a 120Hz LCD and you can run 3D content right out the box. It should also come bundled with Nvidia 3D glasses in the box as well.

------------------------------------

3D Capable:

Due to their Nvidia graphics, all G55/G75 are 3D capable.

The GTX 660M, GTX 670M or GTX 670MX graphics card can output a 3D signal to a compatible monitor.

------------------------------------

How do I add Nvidia Stereoscopic 3D to my 3D Capable G series?

Firstly: We recommend you do NOT replace the LCD in your G series. It requires significant disassembly and with generate significant cosmetic damage. It will also require an emitter to be wired in.

You can add one of our VG series monitors which has an emitter built in and 3D Vision Kit in the box:

VG278H - 27" 120Hz (Replaced in March 2013 by the VG278HR)
VG236H - 24" 120Hz

With these models above, 3D works over HDMI and DisplayPort (and dual-link DVI)

-------------------------------------

These VG series below are compatible with 3D Vision, but do NOT have the required emitter embedded in the design and do not come bundled with 3D glasses. You can buy a Nvidia 3D Vision kit separately (USB emitter and glasses)

VG278HE with 144Hz + 2ms (compatible with NVIDIA 3D)
VG248QE with 144Hz + 1ms (compatible with NVIDIA 3D)

With these models above, 3D works ONLY over DisplayPort (and dual-link DVI)

I have an ASUS G75VW Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M\2GB. Which ones are better, the Wireless or Wired 3D Glasses? Im thinking about geting the Wired ones because I figured if its plugged in directly then it would give out better results. which one should I get?

There's no 3D sku w/660M

You won't be able to use native 3D on the screen, so neither glasses would work

You would need to purchase a 3D ready TV/Monitor/Projector, a 3D glasses kit (if emitter not included) and glasses (if not included with 3D device)

The Best Buy (-BBK?) ones are not 3D. However if you buy a 120Hz monitor like the VG278H then you'll be able to run 3D via that :)

I just bought a g75 G75VW-BHI from best buy a couple weeks ago. From my understanding this laptop has the built in IR port on the left of the web cam to interact with 3d vision glasses. So it should be capable of 3d if i buy the glases.

I can see the port on my machine.

hi all,
i am a proud owner of an G75-DS72 and I am very pleased by it. But I want more... I am wondering if it's possible to upgrade my display from the one that came with original configuration for this model (Full HD LED display) to a 3D Ready one (120Hz refresh rate).
Did anyone do that before or it's just my crazy idea?

You'll need external 3D display.

Even if you were to install the 120Hz screen, you'd still need the 3D emitter.

People have done it on the G75, and the guy on here who did said that it isn't particularly difficult, though you would void your warranty to do so.

It doesn't appear that monitor has a 3D emitter, so you'll need the kit

HDMI 1.4a supports 120Hz out.

I know the G75 has full support for HDMI 1.4a but the BenQ specs don't have information relating to it's HDMI input.

I'd nab a 1.4a HDMI cable off of the internet and give it a try.

Hi,

I'm new here and looking to buy a new laptop to work on 3D photos. I prefer active glasses and would like to do this without doing a lot of extras to the computer.

From reading this thread it looks like I should buy G75VW-DS73-3D because that is the only laptop that is 3D ready to go once it is purchased without adding other parts/kits to the computer. Did I understand this correctly?

Thanks,
Elizabeth

If you have a -3D SKU you'll need to purchase a proper 3D blu-ray software.

I personally use Cyberlink PowerDVD 12

Roxio CinePlayer version 5.0.4188.189 is the software installed in my G75V... and I am watching an AVI format.... The player has some choices of conversion to 3D, side by side, 3D anaglyph, 2D, etc... The movie blurred as if 3D but when I watch through my 3D Glasses (NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 model P1431) there is no difference. It's still blurred... Btw, I tested first my 3D glasses through games and 3D Vision Photo Viewer and it works well...

It has to have the '3D vision discover' option. So far the only one I've been able to get work is the Cyberlink.

You can download the free trial to test :cool:

You'll still need the 3D emitter kit from NVIDIA.

That's also on the assumption that the 3D SKU isn't using displayport instead of LVDS

Blame Best Buy for misleading you, not ASUS.

The G series 3D laptops are clearly SKUed as G75xx-xxxx-3D.

They also come with 3D glasses

I guess technically a car salesman could sell a car as capable of going 600 mph because the manufacturer has a poster on the wall of the car flying..when you bring it back and the guy says it only goes 120mph, you could say yes, its capable you just need to buy the wings and separate kit to make it run on jet fuel..

Not at all.

In your reference it would be like blaming the car manufacturer because the salesman had no idea what he was talking about.

There's a single native 3D sku and multiple non-3D skus.

Your Best Buy salesman failed to properly inform you of that units capabilities. I also wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional (if the unit was in stock) as they will only get credit for units sold in store and not units online.

For your reference, the Best Buy SKU# for the 3D version of the G75 is : 5732088


Note - I totally understand where you are coming from and i'd be super disappointed if I was expecting a feature like that and it wasn't there. Your issue is more with Best Buy and not ASUS.

i guess your right but still it would just make common sense that if your going to put a card in the machine with 3d capabilities why not a 120hz display? Instead i have to cypher through words like "capable" and "ready"(i'm new to this whole 3d thing and already hate it) after the guy tries to sell me the product just to make sure..having a card in a laptop that is 3d capable,yet the display on the laptop is incompatible makes absolutely no sense to me at all, but not much does in this money grab world anymore

Mostly because the displays that support 120Hz are very costly so it adds additional cost to the unit.

It may also require mini-displayport instead of the traditional LVDS connections, any deviations from the normal production line will increase costs.

Should be able to do it with plugging it in using an HDMI 1.4 cable. Then right-click on the desktop and select nVidia settings. If the projector appears, you should be able to enable 3D on it.

To use nVidia 3D vision, then yes, you need to buy their glasses. Get the wireless ones, so that you don't have a cable hanging from your noggin. :p

Hello, I just found this ROG-forum yesterday and I'm very pleased by finding it.

I bought an ASUS G75VW-91135v in Sep 2012 (In Sweden) with 3D on it, but I havent played that much games (or watched any movies for that matter) since it decreases the performance drastically. Is that something that happen to everyone or just me? I'll list the specs for those who want to know below.

Since I bought the G75VW I havent seen my model (91135V) anywhere on the net, when I google the model name there are no-one selling this machine. Is this soemthing I should worry about? Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post to.

Hi to all;

I couldn't find any information here about G75VX.
If i buy Nvidia's 3D Vision 2 Wireless Glasses Kit can i play 3d games on my G75vx-T4053H ?

No, you will need a supported 3D display (Monitor, projector, TV etc)

Hello, I just found this ROG-forum yesterday and I'm very pleased by finding it.

I bought an ASUS G75VW-91135v in Sep 2012 (In Sweden) with 3D on it, but I havent played that much games (or watched any movies for that matter) since it decreases the performance drastically. Is that something that happen to everyone or just me? I'll list the specs for those who want to know below.

Since I bought the G75VW I havent seen my model (91135V) anywhere on the net, when I google the model name there are no-one selling this machine. Is this soemthing I should worry about? Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post to.


Can you please start a new thread, also explaining exactly what you mean by 'decreases performance'?

Yes, sure. Well, when I enable 3D (pressing the button next to the power button) while playing a game it reduces the FPS to half of what I had before enabeling 3D. Hope that cleares it up, I'm from Sweden so I'm not very good att choosing the right words sometimes. :-)

If the unit did not come with glasses you cannot use the native display for 3D.

You will need to purchase a 3D ready display device + 3D Vision 2 kit

Hello,
I need help with 3D, I have Asus G75VX-T4046H model.
I bought this glases:
http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/buy-wired-3d-glasses-uk.html

I have problem: My notebook specifications says that my graphich card and display is supported and that he have 200x Light Boost and nvidia 3DTV Play.
I have Nvidia GTX 670MX graphics card. On NVidia page whrite that my graphics card is compatibile with 3D Vision. My OS is Windows 8 64bit.
On Nvidia Menu i dont have options 3D Stereoscopic so i downloaded manualy and install. When i start program he says that i need enable 3D on graphich card settings and i dont know how. When i try start program (Program FIles/Nvidia Corporation/3D Vision/nvStInst) there
says this: usuage: nvStInst [/install /srcdir=path| /uninstall | /check /srcdir=path]
I downloaded driver for 3D Glasses and when i click install they say: This graphics driver could not find compatibile graphics hardware

Please help, and sorry for my bad english i hope that you understand.

I believe this issue is resolved by BIOS 223 (see http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28046-ASUS-G75VW-NEW-BIOS-v223).

If you choose to update your BIOS, uncompress the BIOS update file directly to a USB flash drive formatted to a single FAT32 partition and use the EasyFlash utility in the BIOS to perform the update. Be aware that any problems encountered during a BIOS flash may render your system unusable.

As implied by @Shawnnepc, you'll probably need to get a 3DTVPlay-compatible external monitor to view 3D content output from your laptop.

Your unit has only 2D VGA card. You don’t have a 3D LCD. Also I do not see that in your device was included an extra IR transmitter for 3D glasses.

Alienware doesn't default their products with 3D screens either.

I just bought Asus G55VW-IX190H, it come with 3D vision glasses. when I watch 3D movie it no 3D display with 3D glasses. but it work when I test run stereoscopic , then I found out when i test run stereoscopic then 3D IR will turn "on" automatically to connect to my 3D glasses. But when I watch 3D movie the 3D transmitter not turn "on", I also can't find any turn on key for transmitter.

so the 3D transmitter is auto detect with 3D movie or need to turn on manually? anyone can help?

You need software that properly supports 3D movies.

Try downloading the trial to Cyberlink PowerDVD and see if that resolves your issue.

Which g75vx models have 3d emitters and displays

cl-Albert

Welcome to the ROG forums!

Models will be different from region to region and should have 'extended' model names like G75Vx-xxxx etc. to specify different configurations, prices, and features (like 3D), so be sure to check the 'full' or extended model name to get the exact model/features you are looking for and not just any G75Vx model.
You may want to say which region you are located in to see if other members in the same region can offer more suggestions, but I happen to be located at the ASUS U.S.A. office and can see you are located elsewhere, so will not be able to give you much help with this.

If you go to the www.asus.com global website and choose your region, you should see a 'where to buy' under the 'services' section as well as a 'Contact ASUS' page which you can access by clicking on this link (http://support.asus.com/Hotlines.aspx?SLanguage=en) too, but your local ASUS support can hopefully provide more information too if you would like to check with them.

Anyway, hope this helps.

It appears that there's no 3D SKU in the US for the G75VX.

The only 3D ROG laptop still for sale is the G75VW-DH73-3D

It appears that there's a few global SKUs that contain 3D, but I am unsure of their product numbers.

If the unit you are purchasing doesn't have a built in emitter you'll need this: http://www.nvidia.com/object/product-geforce-3d-vision2-wireless-glasses-kit-us.html

Without DVI-D you'll be limited to 3D 60Hz/60Hz @ 720p or 24Hz/24Hz @ 1080p


You might also need 3DTV Play license:

Well, yeah, it really does. The monitor comes 3D vision 2 ready. Actually I do not really care about gaming in 3D part, i just want the 120hz to work, but that will not work with HDMI 1.4a if I am understanding you correctly?

Yes, HDMI doesn't have the throughput to handle 120Hz 1080p.

HDMI 1.4b will, but it will not be compatible with the G75 as it requires additional hardware to function. (And may also be a new port type)

You should be able to use the mini display port on your laptop to utilize 120Hz 1080p

It's actually pretty important information!

Your best bet would get a monitor that's 120Hz and has a display port. There's some known issues with using DP > DVI-D

Right now it doesn't appear that ASUS has a 120Hz DP monitor. Right now your only 'good' option would be a BenQ XL2420T.

Good day guys, i have a question, it might have been answered before but if it was i couldnt find it :.
I recently purchased a g55VW laptop, wich came together into the package with nvidia 3d vision glasses, also on the left side of the webcam there is a 3d emblem wich i understood is the transmitter for the glasses. Also i have a 3d movie Thor SBS (side by side version), wich i understood is required for these active glasses. I have charged for around 3h the glasses until the orange light became steady. My question is: how exactly does this work...i press the power button on the glasses....it comes green for few seconds then its going off, also in this time if i play the movie nothing happens, i see the same w/o glasses. How do i make stuff work? Also i understood that in order to watch 3d u need a 120Hz monitor...i checked the properties of my monitor and it sais "generic pnp monitor", guessing i need other drivers? I need to say that atm the laptop is exactly how it came out of the box...all the asus installed stuff.

PLS HALP!

I would really like to get a 3D screen and actually play a video game in 3D. I've spent about 2 hours researching options and I'm still incredibly confused. The VG278HR has HDMI and DVI-D. My G75VX has VGA, HDMI and something called a lightning port? I don't even know what a "displayport" is or if it has something to do with the lightning port (blue bolt with white background). Also, what version is my HDMI Port? Is it 1.4a? If I buy something as nice as an ASUS VG278HR, can I even use it with my laptop? If so, whats the best way to connect it?

If the graphics card has Otimus, then it by definition is not attached to the port directly, that is just the nature of Optimus. However, that doesn't physically preclude 3dtv, it just makes it unlikely, due to bandwidth considerations.

I do not know the answer to your question, unfortunately, but I would say that the answer is most likely yes. It is the active-shutter mode that requires special hardware, not the others. As to the feeling of reality, quite honestly I don't know. It can look pretty immersive, yes, when attached to a TV.

I know this is an old thread but in regards to the G46VW I can confirm somethings. I have a visio TV that is not certified for 3Dtv play and it works perfectly with frame packing. (HDMI 1.4specs) I can run 720p @60hz via HDMI and display port without any hacks. The 660m is more than powerful to run any game at 3d at that resolution. I have tried 120hz at 1080p via display port 1.2 and it works with a 3dtv play projector I have no problems. (frame packing). Asus attached the GPU directly to the Display port and HDMI port (I love and hate this for lots of reasons but I won't go into that).
