Gaming has always been a passion of mine and I have played every type and variation of game out there, be it board, PC, console or D&D with my friends in high school. I have also dabbled a bit in the 3D gaming arena with the I73D monitor and it was very cool, but not quite ready for prime time. 3D, this is a term we have been hearing since the 1960's when cheesy paper glasses and mildly applicable 3D was introduced in movies and made things appear to be moving in your direction. In reality this entire concept is rather old, but technology is starting to catch up with the ideals of 3D and making it a viable application in the gaming world. The paper glasses have been replaced with some new cool plastic goggles and NVIDIA has incorporated the 3D aspect of gaming in these new goggles and their own drivers.

NVDIA Stereoscopic 3D Vision Gaming Review

NVIDIA always known as a trend setter and major player in the VGA game has taken stereo 3D to the next level and bringing it into your home by way of your NVIDIA VGA card a new pair of glasses and IR box that will be known as the GeForce Stereoscopic 3D Vision. One thing NVIDIA has proved is that even if your company, take PhysX for example is failing, NVIDIA has the money and resources to take that idea and turn it into a profitable idea. This whole thing is not a new idea in any way shape or form, but what NVIDIA has done is to make it happen in a new and better way by integrating the 3D spectrum into their VGA platform. One thing that really stopped me dead in my tracks for a day or so was how to convey what my eyes see into a written form that people would be able to grasp, I hope you can translate my words into something that grabs your attention. Let's move forward and see what this is all about as we look at the various aspects of NVIDIA's new 3D Vision.
