Nvidia makes its 3D Vision cheaper

Written by Slobodan Simic

Drops it to US $149

Nvidia decided to drop the price of its 3D Vision kit bundle that now goes for US $149. The bundle includes the USB IR emitter, pair of wireless active shutter 3D glasses and the required 3D software.

Two years have passed since Nvidia introduced its 3D Vision kit. The cool and interesting gadget was selling for US $199 back when it was announced. However, overall cost of the 3D Display coupled with less than desirable availability made it an enthusiast piece of gaming gear.

The new price of 3D Vision kit makes it a bit more affordable and the new glasses have been updated so you will be looking at a 50 percent longer battery life. Nvidia also slashed the price of the glasses as well so you can snatch them at up for US $119.

Of course, in order for it to work, you still need a 3D display and a system, or to be precise, a graphics card that supports 3D Vision. Thankfully, 3D displays are not as rare as they were two years ago, so this time around you just might have a chance.

It's nice NV dropped the price of the 3D Vision. Though according to market research, 3D is not doing all that well, as it stands it lies within the niche market category. No problem, both AMD & NV still need to come out with 3D hardware/software for that niche market.

The only good thing that came out of 3D IMHO is the fact it drives flat panel companies to innovate and create better regular 1080p HDTV’s.

The content is there. According to Nvidia, this acually works with over 400 of today's PC games! Then you have the small amount movies that are being released. All you need is a 3D HDTV or monitor.

My opinion on this all 3d stuff is that it expensive sport that is not good for brain.

Can I use AMD's HD 6xxx's 3D output over HDMI with a commercially available 3D TV? - for example a Samsung 3D Plasma?

I want my first playthrough of Crysis 2 to be at full high def 3D 8)

Yor best bet is Nvidia as they have teamed up with Crytek and EA on Crysis 2!

3D is not entirely good for you. Try playing a 3D game with either NVIDIA or AMD 3D glasses and you will have a nice headache in a matter of 30min or less. The problem with 3D today is it’s not perfected and so the early adopters will suffer from migrain headaches. As for me and the mass populous, I am quite happy with my 1080p HDTV PC gaming without the 3D glasses...

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for new innovations, but this 3D stuff is being stuffed down our throats and it doesn’t even work 100% right. Plus it’s overpriced.. It will remain niche just like the Laser Disc...

You mean Nshittia have done their usual trick of throwing money at a developer to deliberately lock out AMD from some of the features of the game.

When their hardware launches are turd after turd after TURD, they have to resort to underhand methods.

Warrior, how does Huang's shit taste?

Your problem is that you have your tounge buried in AM-DUNG's $h!t chute so deep their balls are resting on your forehead. AM-DOO DOO's inability to develope their own technology is a result of their own ineptitude and inferior designs! Why do they need Nvidia's help? Once you stop letting AM-DUNG mount you repeatedly, you'll see the light! The 6990 is the latest shaft that they're shoving up your gaping sphincter. It was already outclassed upon release and not worth buying as a 560 in SLI are cheaper and faster! Oh! Nvidia just teamed up with Epic on an enhanced Unreal 3 engine too ensuring that their cards work well with games made with this engine.

While I do enjoy 3D time to time, at the theaters and my friends giant 3D screen, I am not ready to give up my IPS panel for a shitty TN one, even if it's 3D capable.

Warrior & dan same person?

Also warrior 560 sli is cheaper than 6990 but its not faster. Find me a review that tests at 1920x1200 or 2560x1600 that says 560 sli is faster and then I will believe everything you say.
