    Hey guys, just got back from our vacation, and heard about this shiny new card released by AMD, I'm itching to get my hands on a couple of those cards, but I also just ordered a couple new Acer 27" 3D monitors to complete my surround 3D setup (5760x1080p)

    My question is: are the 7970s gonna be able to output 3D graphics to these monitors in Eyefinity, or am I stuck with Nvidia for the rest of my life?

    If you guys have had any experience using a 7970 card with an Nvidia 3D vision monitor, or if you have any info on the subject, your input will be greatly appreciated ;)

    Whenever that's going to be. :ohwell: You could try posting over on the AMD game forums to see what some of them have to say. :)

    I know this will sound "fanboy" but if you want 3D Vision/3D Surround with 3D Glasses stay away from AMD and go with Nvidia.

    My thoughts exactly :( Was anxious to hear any news from CES but it was a no show... Will try posting on their boards thanks for the suggestion :toast:

    I know, passive effectively cuts horizontal resolution in half, so until someone releases a passive 3D monitor display at 1920x2160 or higher, the best 3D experience will be with active glasses :(

    It's just that the 7970 looks so hot and OCs so well that I wanted a piece of the action, reminds me of my good old 9800XT... :(

    1H meaning somewhere in between January and June? Let's just say I have some reservations about that.

    If they don't come out when HD 7950 is launched (February) then you likely won't see them till summer. I am happy to be wrong (I am waiting for GK100 myself) but its not looking good.
