Asus announced the world’s first glasses-free 3D OLED displays as part of its new range of laptops at CES 2023.
The technology, dubbed ASUS Spatial Vision, will be available on laptops aimed at creatives, and integrates with ASUS Spatial Vision Hub software so that 3D videos and 3D games can be enjoyed without the need for additional wearable technology.
In addition, OLED screens have a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, a response time of 0.2ms, and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Asus says its new ProArt Studiobook, Zenbook Pro, and Vivobook Pro laptops will feature these screens, with Spatial Vision technology that uses the device’s built-in camera lenticular lens and eye-tracking features to create separate images for each eye, resulting in a self-stereoscopic 3D image.
Furthermore, Asus claims that users can switch between 2D and 3D images with ease, which it says will allow product designers to understand what their 3D models look like in space without having to create physical prototypes.
The Spatial Vision hub also provides support for simulated reality applications, with development tools and guidance on using things like gesture control and interactive learning in the quest to build 3D ecosystems like the metaverse.
The hardware is also loaded with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, which are aimed at content creators who demand heavy performance.
Asus also announced an updated ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 — available for all Studiobook, Zenbook, and Vivobook models — which now has a new interface and a new feature called Color Control, which Asus claims “brings together all of Creator’s color solutions.”
ASUS Dial and ASUS Control Panel also contain updates, allowing for new customizations in Adobe applications, Microsoft Office, Spotify, YouTube, and web browsers.
Asus has also partnered with Panatone, the industry standard for digital color technology, so ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 users will have access to their own databases such as Pantone libraries, Color Space data, and Color Harmonies.
At the forefront of the new laptops is the redesigned Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, with its custom-engineered Intel Core i9-13905H processor using the latest ASUS Supernova System-on-Module (SoM) design to reduce motherboard footprint by approximately 40%, resulting in better cooling. and free up space for GPU power components to give them a performance boost. The laptop also comes with 32GB of LPDDR5X DRAM.
All this is to say, ASUS claims that the new Zenbook Pro will “significantly boost video editing performance and 3D rendering capability — significantly reducing processing time.”
The screen is an OLED HDR NanoEdge 16:10 3.2K 120Hz touchscreen, plus an auto-tilt keyboard to find the right typing angle for you.
