NVIDIA launches sequel to 3D Vision
Twice as bright but still equally priced.
NVIDIA has announced 3D Vision 2, a sequel to its 3D solution for gamers. The new technology promises ‘brighter and richer’ picture and more immersive 3D “realism”. The usual then.
The first big change are the glasses itself: it now sports a lighter, sleeker, and apparently, “gamer-inspired” design. The lenses are 20 per cent larger as well, “resulting in a wider viewing area and increase external light blocking”.
The second big change is the introduction of a new technology called NVIDIA 3D LightBoost. The “unique new display technology” apparently improves the 3D experience by producing brighter and more colorful pictures than “those provided by other 3D display technologies.”
“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 carries the same price tag of $149 as the previous model. The new glasses will be sold separately for $99.
