NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Released

NVIDIA has announced the release of NVIDIA 3D Vision 2, the next generation of its famous stereoscopic 3D glasses.

The newly-redesigned, gamer-inspired glasses also introduces NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology, a new display technology that dramatically improves the 3D experience by delivering images that are up to twice as bright and colors that are richer than those provided by other 3D display technologies.

NVIDIA has affirmed its commitment to "delivering the industry's broadest selection of high-quality 3D content and supported displays."

"Gorgeous, bright, crystal-clear 3D worlds are created by NVIDIA's 3D Vision 2 glasses with 3D LightBoost monitors and notebooks," said Phil Eisler, general manager of 3D Vision at NVIDIA. "NVIDIA's engineering team has made incredible enhancements in 3D on PCs, creating a breathtaking gaming experience that's better than the best Hollywood 3D movie."

"NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology makes 3D games, movies and photos more stunning and life-like than ever before," said David Wung, senior director of product management of Open Platform Business (OPBG) Group for ASUS Computer International. "With 3D LightBoost and our new full-HD monitors, colors are richer, textures and subtle image details virtually jump off the screen, and the overall quality of the experience is something to behold. We are thrilled to be the first desktop display manufacturer to bring this new level of 3D visual quality to our customers with the ASUS VG278H."

NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses were designed specifically for gamers and 3D enthusiasts. They provide deeper immersion in games through lenses that are 20 percent larger than those in first-generation glasses, resulting in a wider viewing area and increased external light blocking. In addition, NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses are made of soft composite materials for a more comfortable fit with gaming headphones.

The glasses, which feature NVIDIA's advanced active-shutter and IR wireless technologies, allow gamers and 3D enthusiasts to access the broadest selection of high-quality 3D content available today, including more than 550 full-HD 1080p 3D games, more than 100 Blu-ray 3D movies and thousands of 3D videos and photos from YouTube and 3DVisionLive.com. In addition, NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses are fully backwards-compatible with all existing NVIDIA 3D Vision Ready content and supporting products, including more than 70 different 3D Vision monitors, notebooks and projectors, video applications, and cameras.

The 3D Vision 2 glasses kit, which includes one pair of NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses and a wireless USB IR emitter, will be available from the leading retailers/e-tailers worldwide in October for $149. It will also be available on the NVIDIA online store. Extra NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses are available for $99.

3D vision and wave about in the air controllers are for nubs and gimmick lovers.
Now go give them some more money, for the next fad they want you to buy!


True but that doesn't mean it has to be 3d glasses, the technology is so old that it was put out of the misery before it could even take flight. Now its just an expensive pain in the rear gimmick, something in the market is drying and a wave of 3d just happens to make a quick return? I don't buy it!

3d awsomeness

3d on games are amazing, including blu ray movies in 3d, thou i often found on games to be a bit dark, so these are just the thing, so ill selling my current ones off , its pricy but u can get 3d monitors quite cheap now pending on size asus are doning cheap ones in 3d, low in contrast though, worth buying if you got some mulla


I was looking at these the other day and was thinking about buying them, but the monitor prices being outrageous stopped me. If I would have ended up buying them it would have been a waste. How often are they going to release a better version?

well i look at it this way,

well i look at it this way, there's always going to be better versions when it comes to technology, so it doesn't really matter whether you get this version, or wait till the next, because even the next version will be old news within a year.

"Version, version, version"

Too true

I have often forked out money without thinking too far into it, well not anymore. But, that's corporatism for ya, it's shiny, it's new, It cost a fucking fortune and it must come before everything else in my life lol........ Ahhhh, the irony.
