Another launch from nVidia, this time it is the 3D Glasses we told you about yesterday. Now that the lid is off we can tell you that nVidia has gone for a shutter technology that has some interesting requirements.

 

nVidia GeForce 3D Vision makes its debut

While most of the hardware needed is nothing special (you need a dual core CPU, Vista, and a series 8, 9, or 200 GPU from nVidia) where you will get hit is in the compatible monitor arena. There are very special requirements for this piece of hardware. For your average LCD you need a 120Hz model or a 100+Hz analog CRT. There are also a limited number of supported HD TVs and only one listed projector.

 

There is also a performance impact running the glasses so if you have a slow game it will be even slower running in 3DMode. Most seem to agree that the actual 3D view is very good but at $200 it is a tad on the expensive side.
