After NVIDIA has been owning the 3d-gaming market with it's 3D Vision bundles, AMD have been left in a 2D world.

Not anymore - with the launch of the Radeon 6000-series of GPU's next week, they will add 3d capabilities to the Radeon line, including support for Blu-ray 3D through the added feature of Multiview Video Coding (MVC) in UVD3.

 

Viewsonic are the first manufacturer to have AMD Radeon 3D support.

 

The V3D241wm-LED ships with 3d active-shutter glasses, the LED-backlit monitor obviously comes in at 120hz (to enable 3D), full HD 1920x1080 resolution, 2ms grey-to-grey response time and Viewsonic's quoted 20, 000, 000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.

 

Stereo speakers are included, which are an amazing four-watts of output, a USB port is included for the plug-in of the included active-shutter glasses. The monitors comes with HDMI, DVI and VGA connections.

 

3D gaming is finally getting to the point where it needs proper support - not closed off like NVIDIA. This could be a sign of things to come, I see a change in 3d gaming once it starts hitting mainstream and with more monitor manufacturers embracing it - it can only lead to great things for customers.
