Nvidia Support Plan for 3D Vision Products

Unfortunately it seems that Nvidia is retiring their 3D Vision software support after quite a long of time with no serious development on the project… can’t say this is unexpected, just not happy that they abandoned the project.

Following the posting of the final driver from Release 418 in April 2019, GeForce Game Ready Drivers will no longer support NVIDIA 3D Vision. The NVIDIA support team will continue to address critical driver issues for 3D Vision in Release 418 through April, 2020. Those looking to utilize 3D Vision can remain on a Release 418 driver.

Our software that enables the use of 3D gaming with 3D TVs, 3DTV Play, is now included for free in Release 418. It is no longer available as a standalone download. Our 3D Vision Video Player will continue to be offered as a standalone download, for free, until the end of 2019.

Asus ROG Swift PG278Q is the First Official Nvidia G-SYNC Monitor

January 7th, 2014 · 8 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

asus-rog-swift-pg278q-g-sync-monitor

Here comes the announcement of the first Nvidia G-SYNC enabled monitor at CES 2014 fromm ASUS – the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q. The monitor supports WQHD 2560×1440 resolution and ASUS says it is a 120+ Hz display, so this is also the first monitor to officially support 120Hz refresh rate with a resolution over 1920×1080. What is not so good news for some people is the that the display probably uses a TN panel, something that is suggested by the announced 1ms response time. And the other not so good news is that there is not a single mention of 3D Vision support, so apparently this display from ASUS is not 3D-capable, meaning we are still don’t have a 3D Vision monitor with a resolution higher than 1080p.

The ROG SWIFT PG278Q is also the world’s first WQHD monitor powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. NVIDIA G-SYNC, a breakthrough in display technology, synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU. The ROG SWIFT PG278Q eliminates screen tearing, minimizes stutter and input lag to deliver the smoothest gaming experience possible. With G-SYNC technology objects look sharper and more vibrant, while gameplay is more fluid and responsive.


ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q Specifications:

– Display: 27-inch WQHD 2560×1440 (16:9)
– Narrow 6mm bezel designed for multi-monitor setups
– Pixel Pitch: 0.233mm
– Brightness: 350cd/m2
– Display Colors: 16.7M
– Refresh Rate: Over 120 Hz
– Response Time: 1ms (GTG)
– Connectivity: 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x USB 3.0 ports
– Stand Adjustments: tilt (+20° ~ -5°), swivel (+60° ~ -60°), pivot (90° clockwise), height adjustment (0 ~ 120mm)
– VESA-wall mountable (100 × 100mm)
– Special ASUS Features: GamePlus and 5-way joystick OSD navigation

According to ASUS the ROG SWIFT PG278Q monitor availability is expected at the beginning Q2 this year for the Asian Pacific, European and North America markets. So we can expect to see this monitor available as early April this year with an expected price of $799 USD. As a comparison you might be able to get earlier an ASUS VG248QE monitor modified to support Nvidia’s G-SYNC technology for about $500 USD, however this is a 24-inch model with 1920×1080 resolution and the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q monitor is 27-inch and with 2560×1440 resolution. It would’ve been nice if this was also announced as a 3D Vision monitor, but there is still some time left until it’s release, so it could get certified by the time for the official release on the market as it has the required features to support stereoscopic 3D as well.

BenQ With New 24-inch 3D-capable Monitors – XL2411Z and XL2420Z

benq-xl2411z-xl2420z-monitors

Soon after the announcement of the new 27-inch BenQ XL2720Z 3D-capable monitor, the company has just announced two new 24-inch 3D-capable displays that essentially bring the new features of the larger model to the smaller 24-inch ones. The new BenQ XL2411Z and BenQ XL2420Z will probably replace the older XL2411T and XL2420T/TX series, but the not so good news is that these two new models expected early next year will not feature support for the new Nvidia G-Sync technology. Nvidia has promised us the G-Sync DIY upgrade modules before the end of the year, but we are still not seeing these available, and availability of models with G-Sync support built-in early next year, but it seems things may get delayed a bit. BenQ XL2411Z and XL2420Z are suppose to be available in early 2014 and probably not too long after their release on the market BenQ may also announce new series that are supposed to provide G-Sync support as well as the company is an Nvidia launch partner for the G-Sync technology.

Enough with G-Sync for now, the BenQ XL2720Z and the new smaller BenQ XL2420Z and XL2411Z monitors that will feature 3D Vision support with an external 3D Vision kit (including IR emitter as it is not built in) as well as 3D LightBoost technology. However, apart from the 3D LightBoost support (strobing backlight) these display feature a new Motion Blur Reduction technology developer by BenQ that is supposed to work in a similar way as the 3D Lightboost, however BenQ’s solution will be video card type independent and you will not need to “hack” it to work in 2D mode as well. Other interesting things about the new BenQ Z-series is a the addition of Low Blue Light mode that allows gamers to adjust the blue light levels of the monitor – what is considered to be the major cause of eyestrain when using computers for long periods of time. Another new feature introduced a these monitors is the Gaming-comfort Flicker-free technology that is supposed to eliminate noticeable flickering of the backlight when you lower the brightness level of the monitor (no PWM dimming of the backlight).
