For those of you who aren't tripping over yourselves racing to the store to pick up a lightweight Ultrabook and demand something bigger and beefier, rest assured there are companies that still believe in the desktop replacement category. Eurocom arguably leads the pack with a full line of desktop replacement systems suitable for high-end gaming and even workstation chores. One of those systems is the new Panther 4.0 with support for NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. "The Panther 4.0 3D is here, a system that offers the power of 580M SLI with the enhanced viewing capability of NVIDIA 3D Vision, to... Read more...
On many levels, 3D Vision 2 is very similar to 3D Vision. The technology works in exactly the same way. It uses the same software, and the new glasses we’ll be showing you are backwards compatible with the original emitters. Conversely, the original 3D Vision glasses are forward compatible with newer 3D Vision 2 kits. But NVIDIA has made a number of physical and technical tweaks that enhance the technology in a few key ways. NVIDIA has redesigned its active-shutter glasses and incorporated 20% larger lenses and worked with ecosystem partners to bring new, larger, full-HD 3D Vision compatible... Read more...
When we first took a look at NVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology a couple of years ago, we came away impressed. We understand that gaming and watching video in 3D isn’t for everyone, but after using NVIDIA’s first 3D Vision kit with one of Samsung’s then-new 120Hz LCD displays, we truly enjoyed the experience. Not only was a new dimension (literally and figuratively) added to the games we played, but there were inherent advantages to using a 120Hz LCD, both when 2D gaming and just working on the desktop. There was no denying NVIDIA had an uphill battle convincing gamers to... Read more...
There's no question about it: 3D technology is HOT right now. Whether you're ready to hop on the bandwagon or just want to keep on top of what's out there, there are two new monitors that should be on your radar, the 27” Acer HN274H and 23.6” ViewSonic V3D245. Both of these 3D monitors feature embedded 3D emitters designed for NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. They also share a number of similarities, but have some very obvious differences. Thanks to NVIDIA, Acer and ViewSonic, we were able to get our hands on both of these monitors so that we could give you a full hands-on look at what... Read more...
For the past few years, display manufacturers of every stripe have been singing the praises of 3-D displays and their various levels of support for the nascent standard. Consumers, unfortunately, haven't been playing along. Despite marketing initiatives, high-profile film releases, and prominent support for 3-D gaming from the likes of Sony and Nvidia, 3-D isn't catching very well. TV manufacturers are grappling with some of the same difficulties that've slowed down Blu-ray adoption. It took various manufacturers and the FCC decades to create an HDTV broadcast standard that satisfied the government's... Read more...
"Hail to the 3D King, Baby!" We don't imagine that's how Duke Nukem's creators originally intended that phase to go, but it may end up going just like that. NVIDIA has announced that Duke Nukem Forever will provide full support their 3D Vision technology. Not terribly surprising that the newest Duke will support 3D, but then again, anything related to this title and "reality" is somewhat impressive. Duke Nukem Forever will add new graphics, new alien foes, new babes, and more debauchery. Gearbox is integrating full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, giving gamers an up-close and personal... Read more...
NVIDIA has just announced that a new, more affordable, wired 3D Vision kit will soon hit the market. The NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses will arrive with an MSRP of only $99 and allow compatible GeForce owners to enjoy the benefits of NVIDIA’s 3D technologies with a pair of active shutter glasses connected to a single USB port. Full details and other information regarding the release are posted in the PR below... NVIDIA Introduces New 3D Vision Wired Glasses for Only $99 New Wired Model Delivers Same Award-Wining 3D Vision Quality and Features with Sleek New Design, Making Full HD (1080p)... Read more...
NVIDIA has just announced that YouTube is now hosting 3D Vision video, so users can access, view, and share stereoscopic 3D videos worldwide. To view the videos in proper 3D, you’ll obviously need an NVIDIA 3D Vision or compatible 3DTV Play setup as well as a new version of FireFox with the requisite plug-in. There are already a ton of videos available, with many of the better offerings cataloged on the NVIDIA 3D Vision Live website. If you’ve got a 3D Vision setup and are able to check out some of the vids, we’d love to hear some feedback. We’ve tried a handful of them... Read more...
There may not be a ‘one size fits all’ HTPC, but there are some HTPC features that are universally (well, almost universally) desired. For one, it’s our opinion that an HTPC should be as quiet as possible. It should also be capable of any multimedia related task, it should be easy to install and use and it should look like it belongs in its environment. Even with those guidelines in mind, an HTPC can be many things. But we think one OEM, namely ASRock, has struck a great balance between performance, form factor, and features with one of their HTPC lines and have come up with a... Read more...
Although Home Theater PCs have been around for quite some time, they are still somewhat tough to define. For some, the term HTPC conjures up images of an ultra small form factor, low-power system that will be used for nothing more than accessing multimedia files. But for others an HTPC is more akin to a hardcore piece of A/V and entertainment equipment that can do it all—play back virtually any file type, browse the web, play games at 1080p resolutions—you name it. The muddled state of the HTPC market is compounded further by OEMs and DIYers as well. Pre-Built home theater PCs are as... Read more...

Nvidia released its new 270 driver series today, with a full set of new tools and performance improvements. Users can now configure the Nvidia control panel to automatically check for and apply driver updates or can simply choose to be notified when new updates are available. Update frequency and beta update notification can also be set separately. There's the usual bevy of small improvements across various games, though some titles—Just Cause 2 and Civilization V--gain markedly more than others. There's also a tremendous performance gain for anyone playing Dragon Age 2; Nvidia claims that... Read more...
Imagine that you're sitting there watching a 3D Blu-ray flick and you're in the middle of an intense scene. Bullets, shrapnel, and chickens are flying off the screen when the bad guy is finally about to get what he deserves, and then...blurriness. Say what? Sorry sport, your 3D glasses just lost their charge, time to plug them in and pick up where you left off later. Boo! Maybe that or something similar has happened to you or maybe not. Either way, Nvidia just announced an updated version of its 3D Vision wireless glasses kit that provide 50 percent longer battery life from a single charge. That... Read more...
