Product Description

Movies, Games and 3D Videos Come to Life

3D your way. You only see movies in 3D. You prefer your games to jump out at you. You have a brand new, state-of-the-art 3DTV. Now you can take the media you already enjoy, the way you like it best — lifelike, immersive, eye-popping and interactive — and enjoy it in your home or everywhere you go.

3D To Go

3D on your screen. Sweet graphics. Killer sound. Truly your own personal 3D theater. Dell offers the highest quality 3D experience you can get with an optional full high-definition (1080p) resolution 3D plus active shutter technology. Not always in 3D? No problem. The full high-definition panel provides an amazing 2D experience in 1080p.

With full resolution, there is no need to scale down resolution or remove information to fit the panels. And at 120 frames per second (FPS) (60 FPS right and left), a full resolution image (1920 x 1080 pixels each) is displayed at full frame rate in each eye. Active shutter technology gives you a wider viewing angle, meaning you don’t need to be in a “sweet spot” to see the content in 3D. Compared to passive polarized technology, active shutter also has better image quality because of higher resolution and reduction in ghosting or doubled images.

The XPS 17 comes standard with NVIDIA 3D Vision, which offers unique opportunities to stream 3D content like PGA Championship, NASCAR, the Masters Tournament and other live sporting events. Play over 500 games in stunning 3D. NVIDIA 3D Vision automatically converts 2D games in 3D and supports the hottest games like Call of Duty Black Ops, StarCraft II and Civilization V.

3D at Home on the Big Screen

XPS laptops are also the first Dell laptops to offer integrated NVIDIA 3DTV Play technology. This enables you to leverage the 3D processing power of NVIDIA GeForce graphics to create an immersive 3D experience in your own home, on a compatible 3D TV.
Simply connect your laptop to a 3D-enabled TV and effortlessly project your favorite Blu-ray 3D movies and 3D photo slideshows for a real-life theater experience. Then, bring your 3D-enabled games to life. Using the power of your laptop and a 3D TV, you can step into an eye-popping 3D gaming experience right in your living room.To harness the 3D power of your XPS 17, all you need is an HDMI cable, optional Blu-ray Disc drive, a NVIDIA compatible 3DTV, 3D glasses and 3D media.
