Hmm thats pretty interesting, if their 3d support extends to 3d vision and has decent support/profiles like nvidia, I may have to re-evaluate my options.

I think you can use any monitor that supports 120Hz refresh and use any 3D glasses you want basically....ATI are keeping it an open standard.

Hopefully we will start hearing some more info soon. Nvidia's twitter page seems to be hinting at something big.

That is great news about ATI supporting 3D. With all the major players involved, they can really push it forward. Honestly once you game in 3d, you'll never want to go back. It really is that immersible

Yeah I felt like I was taking a gamble on a gimmick, since thats what everyone was saying about 3d vision, and then I booted up Batman... It was all from that point forward. I really hope it takes off!

I would honestly think it is people who have never tried 3D, that think it is a gimmick.

I'm gonna join the 3D posse as soon as 42"+ 3DTV's are available at a reasonable price. Also, this new ghost-free 3D tech Panasonic are releasing soon will probably be worth waiting for. TBH I can't wait for the Avatar BluRay3D release, too . I'm hoping it all comes together later this year.

I'm getting the new 2010 Panasonic 50VT25....rumor has it that it comes with a BluRay player but only one pair of glasses

The price is $2499.98....here's a thread on the new models.

Ouch if true,and even though it comes from charlie over at semi accurate,which is widely known he's got no love for Nvidia to say the least,he has been pretty accurate with regards to fermi issues over past 6 months,so his sources,whoever they are,have been providing accurate information.


http://www.semiaccurate.com/2010/02/...and-unfixable/


Seems the A3 yeilds are still way too low for any sort of high volume availability,and that to fix it and the high power draw,doesn't require a simpler and faster metal respin like what they've been doing for the last 3 revisions so far(A1 to A3),but a full base layer respin which would include new masks,and delay fermi at least another 3~6 months in the process.


Also seems that the clock speeds for it hit 600 Mhz at most,even with 64 SP's disabled,and only 5000 to 8000 cards available on the first run,with the actual performance lead with the reduced clocks and shaders will be about 12% faster than cypress overall,and that's with the card using 280 watts of power,versus the 188 watts than cypress uses,while the HD5970 remains untouchable basically....This is not good.

3D Stereoscopic support

While ATI won't be offering their own 3D support like NVIDIA does with its 3D Vision, they will be updating their D3D driver to enable 3rd party middleware vendor support such as iZ3D. They'll be able to offer support for 120 Hz screens and output 60 Hz per eye.

ATI have said they don't want to lock users into only one option like NVIDIA do with 3D Vision. This isn't the first time we've seen ATI say this; in the past they said how they didn't want to lock users into an ATI branded only physics support like NVIDIA do with PhysX.

You should also read the next page on that article for eyefinity bezel correction...it's pretty cool to make sure that no graphics information is lost between the bezel frames.

@ semiaccurate article.



Uggerber asks Igor Stanek (Nvidia) : "Honestly, is there any truth to this Charlie BS?"
