Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision Stereoscopic Glasses Review
13 April 2009
Summary: Looks like the situation in the real 3D image for home computer systems is really changing rapidly. Such large players as Nvidia and Samsung have stepped in the game. Read about a new device from Nvidia in our new review!
Pros: Compatible with 120Hz monitors, TV-sets and projectors from any manufacturer, Monitors with stereo-mode support are superior to older 60Hz models even in 2D mode, Compatible with all graphics cards with Nvidia’s GPUs starting from the 8800 GT, Works at any display resolution supported by the monitor, Monitor’s full resolution is available in stereoscopic mode, No problems with color accuracy, Viewing angles in stereo mode are the same as in 2D mode, No doubling of the...
Cons: Rather high price, Noticeable flicker with a frequency of 60Hz, Incompatible with AMD/ATI’s GPUs
Summary: With all of the qualifications, caveats, gotchas, and frustrations I've expressed over GeForce 3D Vision, you probably have a good sense already that this technology just isn't ready for prime time yet. Few games work well enough to make it worth buying, and from a purely value-oriented standpoint, the math is brutal.
Conclusion: We can't show you exactly what NVIDIA's GeForce 3D Vision stereoscopic glasses do to a game, because you obviously must be wearing the glasses the experience the 3D effect. But we did shoot some quick video to show you what's being displayed on-screen when gaming in 3D. This video shows Unreal Tournament 3 and Half Life 2: Episode 2 being played in 3D mode, with a FRAPS framerate counter being displayed at the upper-left.
Pros: 40 Hours of Use From a Single Charge, Compatible with 350+ D3D games, Excellent 3D Effect, Painless Install
Cons: Requires Specialized Monitors, No OpenGL support, Expensive
NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision Review - 3D Glasses for the Masses
8 January 2009
Excerpt: 3D stereoscopic technologies have been around for ages – I am sure you remember going to see a movie and wearing those red and blue paper glasses at a drive-in at some point in your life. Theme parks have used 3D movies and attractions for quite some time as well though with little advancement over previous implementations.
Conclusion: All in all, this is like a very polished version of what we've had since the turn of the century. No flicker, less headaches (though there may still be some issue with people who have motion sickness -- I just don't have a large enough sample size to say definitively), and broad game support with less of a performance hit than other solutions. NVIDIA has a very good active shutter stereoscopic solution with GeForce 3D Vision.
Bringing 3D to Your Homes - NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision
14 June 2011
Conclusion: Although 3D imaging have been around since the 19th century, it is only recently that they are being ported for home use. In light of what we've seen here, we are pretty impressed with NVIDIA's offering. Not only is it easy to setup, it is also relatively affordable - well, at least the glasses. While the compatible display is still expensive as they are pretty new in the market, the GeForce 3D Vision kit alone will set you back a reasonable US$199 (US$296).
