NVIDIA and ASUS to announce glasses-free 3D monitor?

Published: 18th Oct 2013, 08:48 GMT

UPDATE

It looks like we are not seeing any 3D glasses-free monitor today, it’s all about G-Sync everybody.


Guess what, it looks like I could be right. In about five hours NVIDIA will make a small display-related announcement. The rumor has it that company will showcase a new 3D monitor, only this one will not require glasses!

I don’t know if this is going to be anyway similar to other solutions, but I know it’s made for gamers, so it has to be responsive. There are few possible technologies that could be used here, like mirrors or eye-tracking. Glasses-free monitors usually have smaller view angles, but it depends on the technology. Also the concept is not entirely knew, first panels were made few years ago, but NVIDIA is pretty excited about this announcement, so it has to be revolutionary in some way.

Specification-wise, everything is a  mystery. There is a slim chance it’s 4k, but I honestly doubt it (or maybe that’s exactly what is so special about it?). Currently such monitors, which are already available on the market, are not very popular, simply because they are not cheap. Could NVIDIA and ASUS make it cheaper? I guess we will know in few hours.

P.S. This is still related to graphics cards, right?
