Default Re: Compatibility of 3D with Asus VG236H monitor and a Quadro 600 in Ubuntu 11.04

Yes, active stereo on Linux requires a 3-pin DIN to synchronize the glasses flipping.

Note that more recent single-slot boards such as the Quadro FX 3800 and Quadro 4000 additionally need an adaptor: the board has a header for stereo sync but no actual connector due to space constraints. The adaptor takes up an additional physical slot (but doesn't plug into the motherboard) and plugs into the header on the GPU board.
