_which_ quadro cards have stereo support under driver 3123
i would like to know which quadro chipset is included in the new quad-buffer-stereo support. is it only the quadro4 700/750/900 series, or e.g. the quadro4 500 as well ?

in addition, can I use the shutterglasses & cables I bought for the GeForce2 / MSWin / Stereodriver _or_ do I need to get extra cables and glasses ?

i develop low-level openGL scientific visualization software on several unix systems, among them linux. up to now, only expensive un*x workstations could offer quad-buffer based stereo, but with the latest advancement and effort of NVIDIA, linux+opengl is finally maturing to a point where it can replace these commercial workstations in this respect (thankyou thankyou thankyou). now i read that quad-buffer stereo is supported with the newest 3123 driver, only its not clear exactly which quadro chipsets are supported.

Stereo is supported on all Quadro cards, with the exception of the Quadro4 NVS 200/400 cards.

Specifically, yes, the Quadro4 500XGL supports stereo.

tnx - This is great!

I will try to get my hands on one (here in Switzerland) and test out stereo for linux. From the top of my head, I know about 500 people that would be maximally excited if it works in my viz app and scientific software for linux in general.

Any idea when stereo will be supported on other cards?
Are there plans to add stereo support for cheaper boards as well anytime soon? I have an Asus V7700 GeForce2 GTS based board with 3d goggles and was hoping to see Linux stereo support. I am also using it for scientific visualization - I've replaced some volume visualization apps that were running on SGI workstations at ~1 fps with Linux versions that work at ~10 fps. It'd be great to have stereo as well.

Alternately, what is the cheapest card out there that will currently support quad buffered stereo?
I see some Quadro4 550 XGL cards in the $250 range on Pricewatch...
