Introduction of the 3D PCs

The main highlight of the event was NVIDIA's various 3D solutions. And one of the ways users can enjoy 3D is through a new category of PCs that NVIDIA calls “3D PC”. Now, you might be wondering what exactly constitutes a 3D PC, and according to NVIDIA, a 3D PC is a desktop or notebook that:

  • Includes a pair of 3D active-shutter glasses (like the 3D Vision kit from NVIDIA)
  • A 120Hz 3D-capable display in the form of a desktop LCD monitor, 3D projector, 3D TV or notebook PC with an integrated 3D-capable display
  • A discrete graphics processor (like a GeForce GPU from NVIDIA) that is capable of delivering high definition imagery to the 3D display

Here are some examples of how users can easily enjoy 3D at home with NVIDIA.

This is the ASUS G51Jx-EE, a 3D-compatible notebook that comes with an embedded emitter that works with NVIDIA's 3D Vision shutter glasses.

This Clevo notebook is powered by the mighty GeForce GTX 480M and it too supports NVIDIA 3D Vision.

This ASUS EeeTop AIO is powered by the NVIDIA Ion chipset, which supports NVIDIA 3D Vision.

3D PCs like this one can also be used to drive 3D-compatible TVs, which will become more widespread in the months to come.

Nettops powered by NVIDIA ION, such as his one from Zotac, is an inexpensive way to bring 3D into your homes.

Gaming in 3D on a triple monitor setup was a thrilling experience.
