Among other new VAIO refreshed models, VAIO F series definitely stands out as its first 3D VAIO enabled notebook. As you may remember it was first introduced in its prototype stage at IFA and today Sony unveiled this monster desktop replacement. It packs a second generation Intel® CoreTM i7 Processor with 4 cores and supports Intel Hyper-Threading and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 delivering the premium performance needed for powerful PC gaming. It comes with Windows® 7 Home Premium operating system. Beautiful full HD 1080p 16″ LCD will deliver unprecedented immersive experience into the 3D world. With a touch of the 3D button you will also be able to convert 2D HD videos to 3D (however 2D pictures are not convertible). A built-in 3D sync transmitter and included 3D active glasses let you enjoy 3D movies wherever you are.
Another feature that was known to Sony AV products has been introduced to a VAIO for the first time. It is Sony’s own S-Force® Front Surround 3D system you do not need a home theater system to get vibrant sound. The unit’s extended stereo effect plus simulated 5-channel surround sound provide the perfect accompaniment for viewing 3D content.
Effortlessly connect the PC and transmit in 3D to a compatible HDTV with 3D via its HDMI™ output for a larger viewing experience.
A NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M with 1GB dedicated VRAM card provides high-definition graphics processing for intense gaming action without placing huge demands on the unit’s CPU.
Launch directly into Sony’s own Media Gallery™ software, by pushing the designated VAIO button on the keyboard, and rediscover your favorite music and photos with the software’s intuitive filing system. Developed with design in mind, the software includes a stunning user interface with easy-to-use features that take the work out of enjoying your media. We will confirm later on if this version of VAIO Media Gallery has Bravia Internet Video functionality.
Hands on experience with video is coming up later, so stay tuned for more specs.
