During CES I had a chance to meet with NVIDIA, and check out their GeForce 3D graphics that work with any monitor with 124 hertz refresh rate, and I was pretty impressed at it’s simplicity.
Having used an IZ3D monitor in the past, I know how complicated it can be to set up. For the IZ3D monitor you needed a video card with 2 dvi adapters because the monitor required two, and then you had to memorize where the hot keys were that increased or decreased the depth of the image. But once you figured it all out it worked great.
However NVIDIA wanted to make that simplier, and they have with their 3D devices. Once you have a 3D capable monitor as I said any monitor that has a 124 Hertz refresh rate (however NVIDIA has only certified some monitors), and the 3D glasses, you pretty much just install the software and run a wizard.
At CES I tried it out and the 3D was 10 times better than the 3D delivered by IZ3D monitors, you actually could tell how far away items were from you. Bryan Del Rizzo from NVIDIA even told us that some gamers claim to have improved at games because they have a better grasp at how far something is. So they are using less bullets in games and or throwing grenades perfectly because of the 3D.
NVIDIA also recently bought Physics so just imagine 3D game play with Physics. That is going to make gaming as real as it can get.
Something else I noticed with 3D graphics from NVIDIA is, I no longer get dizzy while playing first person shooters. Normally 2 or 3 minutes into a FPS game I begin to get dizzy so I avoid FPS games. However when playing left for dead which NVIDIA’s 3D solution I didn’t have any problems, while it may not be a cure for all, it seems to work for me. So those of you who get dizzy during FPS games may want to try one of these 3D solutions out.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Solution is the best available in my opinion so if you are looking for a 3D Solution check out NVIDIA’s.
