iZ3D monitor in linux?
 
I'm wondering if this 3d monitor will work in linux: http://iz3d.com/products/22_iz3d.html
Here's the response I got on their forums:

Hi, Jonathan!

Thank you for your message.

It is important to now do you use DirectX or OpenGL to run
WoW with WINE. As we know most of Linux based corporate
applications use OpenGL, but this is not correct for game.

To run our iZ3D 3d display we use chain nVidia card + nVida
driver + nVidia stereo driver. If this chain is applied for
WINE you can run iZ3D on it.

If you have nVidia card ths simplest thing you can do is to
install nVidia stereo driver and run testing application on
it in anaglygh (blue/red) mode. We red / blue glass or
plastic you may check results if 3d is there - then iZ3D
will work too with high probability.

Please contact me at any time if you need any additional
clarification.

I'm wondering if these forums will know more.

Per the driver README, only Quadro graphics support stereo.

If 3d monitors become somewhat common consumer items, will the drivers be changed so that I can run a monitor like that on my 7800gt?

The funny thing is that under Windows I could use my Stereographics and Asus flipping glasses using the nvidia stereo drivers for the GF2. Why wouldn't a driver allow to use hardware that is supported in OS1 in OS2?

I think there is some confusion here. The NVIDIA Linux driver support so-called "application stereo", where an application draws into the left and right stereo buffers on its own. That mode is only supported on Quadros. NVIDIA also has a driver that provides stereo in games on GeForces, but that driver is only available for Windows.

I hope that clarifies things.

So you are saying this is a technical difference between the cards? Some people flashing their cards claim it is only a software lock :)

I think stereo 3D is getting really common now and it is really a shame, that nVidia is not able (not willing) to support this in Linux. :thumbdwn:

Until now, I always bought nVidia graphics cards starting with a RivaTNT, and GeForce 256, 6800 GTX and 8800 GTX later on.

It is a shame that nVidia is artificially crippling the prosumer graphics cards' stereo 3D capabilities and its double precision GPGPU performance. Heck, I can't even watch stereo 3D movies with a 600 nVidia GeForce GTX590 - on Linux. :thumbdwn:

I was always positive about nVidia and its compatibility with Linux. Therefore, I never bought ATI or AMD graphics cards before, but I really think I will switch. At least they do not cripple the double precision GPGPU performance as nVidia does.

Best regards,
drmah (a former nVidia zealot - and now totally sick of it)

They just don't support 3D Stereo in OpenGL on any platform when using plain Geforce cards, get a Quadro if you want that.
