Anton over at the 3D Vision Blog
takes on two very good questions. The first question that he seeks to answer is whether the power consumption of a personal computer increases or decreases when in stereo 3-D mode versus when in plain 3-D mode. The answer, as it turns out, is that it depends. When the computer is running at a low resolution and the graphics card is not being stressed, then switching from plain 3-D mode to stereo 3-D mode will
increase the power consumption. When the computer is running at a higher resolution and the graphics card is being stressed, then switching from plain 3-D mode to stereo 3-D mode will not
increase the power consumption.
But what about the second question?
Now the next logical question that you should ask is if the 120Hz LCD monitor actually uses more power when displaying plain 3D content in 60Hz or 120Hz and what happens when it displays 3D content at 120Hz. And here you can say something like that watching 3D content might kill the Earth, because of not being so eco-friendly, thanks to using more powerâ?¦
