* Nvidia's "New" 3D Tech

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
NVidia's trying to take over an old tech - 3d glasses.

Only this time, they're desperate to tie it to incredibly-expensive hardware instead of making it work with normal hardware. A damn shame, too, because I'm using my GeForce 7800 these days with my old VRStandard glasses and a standard CRT monitor and they're still stunning.

Q: How much more expensive will 3D-supported panels cost over regular displays?

DB: Depending on the type of 3D implementation chosen, the additional cost on the monitor side could range anywhere from $100 to well over a thousand dollars. ViewSonic is targeting to launch our first ?pure? 120Hz / 3D desktop product at an end user price range reflecting a premium at the lower end of that scale. For the performance improvement we will deliver, we believe that gamers, graphics professionals and enthusiasts will be excited to put one on their desktop. The Controller and Glasses will be sold separately.
It'll be interesting to see if someone can hack together support for our older glasses out there - I really don't feel like having to re-buy my 3D glasses (and a freaking monitor) just to keep playing in true 3D.
