NVIDIA Corporation today announced that NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision technology, the world’s first high-definition 3D stereo solution for the home, has received a rousing thumbs up from the who’s who in the game development world. Now that the designers, artists, and creative forces behind the industry’s hottest games have had a chance to take 3D Vision for a test drive, they have been unanimous in their praise for this hot new technology sensation that debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

3D Vision rocks, I've got one of the 3DVision kits and it totally changes the face of gaming.

Left4Dead is 100% better in 3D.

I can imagine how good it looks. You need to see 3D gaming or you just don't understand what it means, really. I've been an enthusiast of stereoscopic 3D gaming since the beggining (to the point of being reason #1 that I still have a CRT). And by that I mean that I loved to play the games with it, even in the past, when suffering of lots of ghosting and a bit of flickering was common (no flickering with my current monitor @ 100-120 hz though).

If this 3D vision really is ghosting free, it must be crazy. I'm looking into it and if it happens to work well with CRTs too, I'm definately in, but I won't buy the expensive LCDs yet. I too have to look if this new drivers will work better with my current shutter glasses, before buying Nvidia's though. Because if they work... :D:D:D

If you decide to go with just the glasses until prices drop on the true 120 monitors there is a little flicker at 100Hz.

At 120 Hz (crt) I didn't see any flicker. You can drastically reduce flicker on 100 Hz by turning off the lights in the room.

I'm lucky I have the Samsung true 120 Hz and 3D Vision. It is awesome, dial up the depth slowly as you get used to it and it's almost like standing in the game.

I might give them a try then. But now that I think of it I'll probably wait till I buy a new graphics card, because this one won't run any new game properly in S3D anyway. Sadly I don't know when I'll be able to convince my practical side of mind to buy a new card, when I can already play all games maxed out and don't game so much anymore... :eek:

You don't know if the drivers work with other glasses right? Because what makes this solution better than the past ones is not really the glasses in themselves, but how the drivers handle the games and comunication/coordination with the glasses. I guess.

I don't even know if you can download the drivers anyway. Damn. I'm so unninformed about this...:banghead:

EDIT: Oh and don't worry too much, my CRT can do 120 hz at 1280x and 100 hz at 1600x, and I could be happy with both if the 3D really is so amazing and so much better, as it sounds. Mind that here our TV is PAL 50 Hz, so although I am able to notice anything below 85 Hz and in the PC 60 Hz annoys me a lot, I'm accostumed to 50 Hz in other places. I could twist my mind to accept 50 Hz per eye (for a few months) if required and the experience was trully good otherwise. :p
Little flickering 3D reality >>> flickering free flat world. :D

I miss my good old CRT :\

Flat-panel displays just don't have... "It" - I suppose most ppl don't really notice because they never had a QUALITY CRT.

Or they just don't care :\

These developments in 3D really excite me though - but the costs are a little silly at the moment.

I remember trying to make my own 3D glasses for DukeNukem 3D's Stereoscopic mode out of cardboard and sweet wrappers years ago - I hear things are a little better than that these days?

I use a good CRT but everytime I think "man I need something new" (probably due to LCD propaganda), so I go to the store, look at a few and go "nah, not yet anyway, Ill wait to see what Laser or Oled will do".

Agreed. It happens the same to me. But shh! Don't tell them... Every time we need a new screen, many in my family and friends do the same, checking the LCDs in the stores, then we go to ebay/second hand stores and buy a high quality 21-24" CRT for 25-50 euros. :laugh:

Better picture quality for 1/10th of the price what more could we ask for? :laugh:

Ejem, I mean. NOOOOOO. LCDs rock, LCDs FTW!! :rolleyes:

Just proves again and again that ppl will buy what they are sold, for no other reason than that is what they are told to buy.

And so dies the CRT manufacturing industry because of "Lack of demand"

I think it's just because it's so much cheaper to ship flat panels. (5X as many units moved for the same shipping costs)

I got this CRT from my friend's dad. He said it was in the way (he had just bought an LCD). I was still using CRTs, so he gave me this one since it was better. It's pretty awesome lol. Only problem is the lack of widescreen. =\

Is it just me or do monitors seem really big when you first get them and it's almost like like they shrink in size/impressiveness over the next few days?

Hahahaha, YES! Definately.

And I'm actually one of those rare people who don't like wide-screen for gaming. Maybe 15/10 or something like that, but 16/10 and 16/9 i don't like them too much. For gaming. Movies yes I do.

I dont like it, but I also do not, not like it.
It does not make much of a difference for me in the actual games.
But I do hate black-bars so for that I need a widescreen monitor (16:9) for some games.
To bad there are no 16:9 CRT monitors.

Honestly - the Wide-screen is the only reason I DID tolerate the change to Flat Panel.

Was Great for things like STALKER - to be able to see a little more "edge vision"

But since you have to run at native resolution, or have everything look like cr*p - it put a LOT more load on my Video card that had until then been handling just fine - so i was kinda forced into buying an upper-end card just to be able play things they way they used to be :\

That was teh sux.

(For the record I lost my CRT to lightning - not because I was looking for wide screen)
