Nvidia believes 3D gaming makes a difference

Written by Fuad Abazovic


3D TV gaming now possible
If you happen to live in a developed country and can afford a new 46+ inch TV, it’s highly likely that you will be going after LED TV with 3D capabilities, as prices of new TVs with LED panels went down dramatically over the past year or so.

Many might be reluctant to buy a new TV due to a possible second economic downturn, but all the proud owners of 3D TVs now have the chance to plug a notebook or Geforce desktop in their 3D TV and use Nvidia's 3D vision.

This is now possible via HDMI 1.4 connector and cable and the beauty is that you can use the glasses that you get with your TV. This is what Ujesh Desai Nvidia's Vice President of event marketing was very enthusiastic about. We were told that ex-ATI chipset expert Phil Eisler who runs 3D Vision for Nvidia is doing a good job.

Of course, $99 USD wired glasses for 3D monitors definitely help the cause and 3D monitors are now widespread and don’t cost that much than 60Hz monitors with the same resolution.

There should be some 500 games that support 3D vision today, and we can tell you that it looks quite good until it makes you dizzy. To be fair it doesn’t happen to everybody and it doesn’t happen every time, but we know quite a few people who got dizzy after Avatar 3D and games produce even worse effect to these individuals.

This is one of the key factors that gives PC gaming an edge and the fact that DirectX 10 and 11 games do look better than the console ones. This Xmas might be all about PC games, as 2012 is the game of new Xbox and Playstation that will get equipped with latest greatest 28nm DirectX 11 graphics, reportedly both from AMD.

3D is a gimmick. It does not sell games. Nvidia are making zero money out of it. Yet another fail from the piss poor green team.

At least you acknowledge that all next gen consoles will have AMD graphics chips. Why is that, I wonder? Could it be that Nvidia just can't do it ? Or is it that the console makers know Nvidia is dead and buried and will be gone in 2 years time?

So Eyefinity is dead because AMD crap can't handle six monitors with 3D @ 120fps. :D

Because consoles fagbots don't need realistic Nvidia's graphics. They need downscaled Battlefield 3 704p, 30fps. :D

3D does not make much sense in terms of high speed games like shooters. Simply because the action is to quick for your brain to be able to realign the two stereoscopic images. Fast camera and especially shacky camera does not work for most people in current 3D stereo technology at all. It also does not make much sense in scene footage where there is too much going on since you have the same problem. So very bad for scenes with lots of dense foliage. Stereoscopic makes maybe sense in slower games like strategy, simulators.

And neither nShitia, AMD can handle 3D on 3 monitors just as well as nShitia, but nShitia can't even do six monitors for twat, just stay on your gay parade and leave the technology matter to the geeks.

What is the likely hood that anyone will be gaming on 6 monitors? Even gaming on 3 monitors is rare.

The price difference between a 6970 and a GTX 580 is ` $120. The price of a 46" LED TV is about $1100. So lets do the math. Nvidia option + TV = $1958 and AMD option + TV = $1718. Thats a price differnce of $240 which is only 12.3% difference. whether you spend $1958 or $1718 its all Over priced SHIT as you would say. GTX 580 = better card than 6970.
