Gitex 2008: They work well


Zotac has showcased Nvidia's 3D stereo glasses on a 120Hz display and it looks pretty much the same as the demo that we've seen back in late August at Nvidia's Nvision.

Company representatives didn’t have any answers when will this technology be available for the masses and which products will actually come bundled with these glasses. The demo that Nvidia has put together looks really great and the glasses are really wireless; and the only thing you need to plug in your USB port is the received part that is used to synchronize the glasses with the screen.

Nvidia will probably answer some of these questions at its meeting that is currently taking place in Taiwan, and we can tell that the glasses are a nice gadget; but there is still a huge cost related to the fact that you would need to change your display for one that supports 120Hz, and such an adventure would probably cost you at least a few hundred euros / dollars to get any decent sized monitor.

The question remains, what to do with your obsolete 22 or 24-inch display that can only do 60MHz or 75MHz at 1680x1050 or 1920x1200, as this is obviously not enough for glasses which need 120Hz to work properly?

The demo we’ve seen was done with Geforce GTX 280 at 1680x1050 at 120Hz on a Viewsonic display.
