In a similar offer to Dell and their Alienware gaming laptops, Origin PC has this week announced that any orders which have been placed in the last couple of weeks and have not been processed and shipped. Will automatically receive an upgrade to Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors, at no extra charge.
Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors are a 22nm follow up to the successful 32nm Intel Sandy Bridge processors. As well as the 22nm construction and new 3D Trigate-gate transistors. Intel has also increased the Ivy Bridge’s security. With a hardware random number generator, great for encryption, and a hardware-enabled supervisory mode that helps prevent malicious code from being executed.
Along with quicker 3D rendering, Intel has also provided the chips with a broader graphics package, and the QuickSync video transcode now includes better performance, for instance. Native support for up to three displays is another first. More information on Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors can be found over on the Intel website.

Here you are the A540-H, a new 3D notebook from LG. While LG announced at CES earlier this year the Glasses-Free 3D A540-T/D, today in Korea LG announced a new version of this A540 with the A540-H and its Cinema 3D IPS Display (Passive 3D glasses). This new A540-H comes with SRS Premium Sound 5.1, a new Core i7 Quad Core CPU, as well as a nice GeForce GT555M Graphics. If like most of us you have no interest whatsoever in 3D you will be glad that LG will also propose in Korea the A540-P with its none 3D AH-IPS Panel.

LG Optimus 3D Max — or Optimus 3D Cube, depending on your country. The latter’s been announced for Korean carrier SK Telecom, with the former rolling out to Europe later. The Optimus 3D Max is slightly thinner than its predecessor at 9.6mm vs. the Thrill 4G’s 11.9mm, with a faster 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 16GB of storage built-in, confirming most of therumors we’d heard previously.
According to LG, it will also be the world’s first that can handle 3D photo and video editing right on its glasses-free 4.3-inch screen, all shot by the dual 5MP cameras mounted on the back. It also has NFC baked in to support the new LG Tag+ stickers that change the phone’s settings when swiped, just like the Optimus LTE Tag. It’s scheduled for release in early March with Android 2.3, but we’re promised an Ice Cream Sandwich makeover soon after launch, just like its cousin, the Optimus Vu.
Check out the full list of specs after the break and expect to us to get a firsthand look when Mobile World Congress kicks off on the 27th.

Dell has just taken the wraps off a brand new addition to the Alienware family, hailing it, rather poetically, as “a serenade to raw gaming power.” It’s called the Alienware Aurora, and it’s staring at you with a Cylon-like grin in the image above. Beneath its menacing veneer lurks Intel’s six-core, 3000 series Core i7 CPU, an X79 Express chipset and quad-channel DDR3 memory, all of which are kept in check by Dell’s liquid cooling and active venting technologies.
The Alienware Aurora gaming rig also supports both multi-display and 3D configurations, with GDDR5 memory-laced graphics cards.In person you’re not slaked, you can always get under the outlaw and repairman with it yourself, without equal busting out your tool track.

For those shopping around for a 3D monitor, LG has recently unveiled their DX2500 series glasses free 3D monitor in South Korea. Customers will be able to choose from either a 20” monitor or a 24” monitor although apart from its size, they both appear to have the same technology built into them which is the parallax barrier 3D technology which is supposedly good enough for the company to earn TÜV Rheinland certification.
One of the tricks to glasses free 3D is that it allows the user to see 3D imagery if they look at it from a certain angle. However since we can hardly be expected to sit in one spot and not move our heads for hours, LG has made use of the built-in webcam in the DX2500 monitors to help track the viewer’s head/eyes.
This will allow the monitor to adjust the image based on where their heads/eyes have been tracked, ultimately allowing the user to see 3D images at pretty much any angle. The bad news is that if you wish to watch a show or video on this monitor with friends or family, it might prove to be a little tricky. The LG DX2500 series of monitors is currently available in South Korea for 1.29 million Won (~$1,131) and is expected to be released internationally next year.
