The folks at Engadget were lucky enough to have recently gotten a taste of NVIDIA's 3D Blu-ray ecosystem on one of Acer's upcoming LCD beauties, the 120Hz NVIDIA 3D-ready 24" G245.
Thanks god, finally a 120hz 24" monitor, now I have a reason to upgrade :D No sense in getting another 22" just for 120hz, this monitor= win/win
I really don't see the point of 3D TV's if we still have to wear 3D glasses for them....
Its not that they are 3D tv, its the hertz making them compatibly with those glasses. Smart marketing by calling it 3D tv's. The real ones don't need glasses, seen them in action, kinda cool. I need to get myself a FHD LCD tv, @ 120hz...i want these Nvidia glasses. Edit: "120Hz NVIDIA 3D-ready 24" Its not saying 3D tv, its just saying it can be used for that nvidia product
I'll be buying one of these monitors, but I personally don't care about 3d, because unlike supposed "120hz HDTV"'s this actually displays 120 individual unique frames, whereas hdtv's display each frame multiple times to give the illusion of smoothness, this will be an awesome gaming monitor, 120frames with v-sync? yes please
Well doesnt the input need to support that rate? Else it will always be a duplication of the frames in between.
that's right, 120 frames for blu ray etc is just duplicating the frame, but for gaming you get the whole 120 frames, each frame unique, using a supposed "120z HDTV" for gaming would only increase input lag, due to the fact thew you would see the same frame 4 times before noticing mouse movement etc, which is the exact opposite of responsive which is what this monitor is for, 3d gaming still seems like a gimmick to me, even those that use it and say it's cool, still say it hurts their eyes after a few hours, which is not good for me as I like a good 8 hour session on an rpg etc, 120frames per second with v-sync would be dreamy though *drools*
Wrong zone :( but even still cant wait :D
bu bu bu bluray is uzelezzzzz all we needzz iz DVD9ZZZZZ Oh chatboxes why cant M$ just admit Blu ray has always been needed ? ;-) http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... http://www.computerandvideo...
You do realise that as of right now there are over 100 3d games on pc, and they have absolutely nothing to do with blu ray, good old consoles, getting hand me down pc tech
getting steady 120 fps in actual game is like impossible. I'd like to play arma 2 that way though :D
with fermi it wont be :D
