No Comment 25 Views

Here’s an interesting mix of technologies that could prove fatal for the piece of equipment or cause some jammed fingers and a rise in medical tape, it’s a 3D multi-touch PC.

They range in size from 19 to 24 inches, feature Windows 7 pre-installed, non-upgradeable (in lower end models) RAM from 2 to 4GB, up to 1TB SATA storage, Blu-Ray, Wi-Fi (b/g/n), up to ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 Discrete Graphic with 1GB VRAM and of course a set of 3D glasses.

MSI, a leading manufacturer of computer components and systems, today announced the North American availability of the Wind Top AE2420 3D, the world’s first 3D touch screen all-in-one PC. Unlike 3D TVs, the Wind Top AE2420 3D addresses the current disconnect between people’s interest in 3D entertainment, and the limited availability of content, as it can bring almost any 2D content – from home movies to DVD rentals and 3D Blu-Ray – to life in 3D.

The Wind Top AE2420 3D is powered by Intel Core i7 processors, which have multi-tasking functionality and automatically adjusting processing frequency to meet the demands of running 3D entertainment, while also being a powerful computer for everyday use. The large 24" full high definition (1080p) multi-touch display, flicker-free 120Hz LED panel, and exclusive wireless 3D shutter glasses provide 3D video entertainment for your whole family in your own home.

Specific Wind Top AE2420 3D product highlights include:

  • Ability to enjoy a quality 3D experience in an all-in-one PC – MSI combines all the facets of 3D technology into one family friendly entertainment PC. To reduce uncomfortable screen flicker, the Wind Top AE2420 3D has a 120Hz high scanning frequency LED back-light panel, which is twice the speed of 60Hz panels. Inside the unit, MSI uses precise imaging technology to create 3D visual effects similar to how the human eye views images. Plus the Wind Top AE2420 3D comes with rechargeable wireless active shutter 3D glasses that further enhance the experience with a high contrast ratio and two millisecond response time.

  • Create and enjoy 3D content – MSI addresses the shortage of 3D movies with technology that converts 2D content to 3D. The Wind Top AE2420 3D is also the world’s first multi-touch AIO that’s capable of running 3D games, and showing 3D photos and videos taken with the new 3D cameras on the market. Plus, it provides 3D graphics performance with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD5730 discrete graphics chip that supports DireX 11. This high performance discrete GPU displays smooth, clear 3D images with extraordinary layers of color.

  • Blazing fast transfer speeds with USB 3.0 – The Wind Top AE2420 3D is the first all-in-one PC in the world to feature USB 3.0 technology, which supports transfer rates up to ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0. This means that you can transfer high-definition data including movies, videos, and other large file formats – faster and easier than before – so you can enjoy the experience with minimal interruptions.

  • Powerful surround sound audio capabilities – The Wind Top AE2420 3D delivers authentic 2.1 channel surround sound via two hi-fi five-watt channel speakers and a ten-watt subwoofer powered by MSI Premium Sound Technology. And with its Hollywood grade THX TruStudio Pro technology, you can enhance sound performance to 7.1 surround sound for pure, clear tone quality, extreme sound layering, and powerful vibrations for a theater-like experience.

The Wind Top AE2420 3D all-in-one PC is priced starting at $1,799. It will be available online at MWAVE.com, NEWEGG.com, TigerDirect.com and Amazon.com; and at retail stores in the U.S. including J&R Computers and Music and B&H Photo and Video, and in Canada at Canada Computer and Groupe Sonxplus starting on September 20.

It could certainly make for some interesting gaming being multi-touch and 3D in one. Of course I don’t know how many high-end FPS I would want to play as I might poke my finger right through it in the heat of battle.
