Extreme graphics performance with the NVIDIA GTX 460M:

The G53 3D notebook packs a punch with the NVIDIA GTX 460M graphics card– based on the latest generation range known as Fermi.

Employing DirectX11 graphics with effects such as real time ray tracing and advanced tessellation, it delivers extreme graphics performance within a fully portable package and is the most sophisticated graphics engine from NVIDIA to be packed inside any notebook.

What’s more, this is the first time this powerful new processor is used alongside a whopping 1.5GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory, allowing games to be displayed in high resolutions with anti aliasing switched on - without any compromise in video quality.

With the NVIDIA GTX 460M on board and raring to go, the G53 3D is ready for the newest and most demanding PC game titles, including StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty from Blizzard-Activision.

Full support for mind-blowing 3D Visuals:

The G53 3D is the first notebook to use the new NVIDIA GTX 460M processor for 3D graphics rendering.

Offering full support for high definition gaming, this machine delivers 3D graphics to the eye in 120 frames per second through the high fidelity NVIDIA 3D Vision active shutter glasses and embedded sensor– with virtually no viewing angle restrictions, making it ideal for multi-player and LAN party groups.

This advanced technology helps to eliminate issues such as ghosting and lag and ensuring even the most hardened player never loses sight of his game.

The G53 3D integrates a superior quality 15.6” LCD display, but for those who demand a full-scale living room experience, it also supports 3D output to compatible large screen televisions through HDMI 1.4.

The impressive NVIDIA GTX 460M graphics engine uses special hardware to accelerate 3D graphics on Blu-ray discs– a resourceful step up in comparison to traditional types (which rely on the CPU and in turn increase system load)– delivering faster, higher quality 3D graphics through the high definition format.

Dedicated gaming design promises long-lasting user comfort:

The unique styling of the Republic of Gamers G53 3D sets it apart from the usual gaming notebooks.

The keyboard surface is inclined at 5 degrees– offering a comfortable and ergonomic angle to play at, whilst the rear venting cooling exhaust is designed to push heat and noise away from the gamer, keeping the notebook stable and cool.

This thoughtful and game-dedicated design will keep even the most vigorous gamer fresh and comfortable - even during the lengthiest gaming session.
