3D from PC to 3DTV
3D from PC to 3DTV now possible

Until now, 3D PC gaming and 3D TV gaming were two different worlds but now the graphics card manufacturers have developed systems that allow you to enjoy the many 3D PC games on your larger larger flat panel 3DTV in your living room. Learn more about Nvidia and AMD’s new 3D systems here.

3D from PC to TV

PCs and TVs are converging. Internet has found its way into TVs recently, and now the 3D convergence has started.

Until now it has not been possible to play 3D games from a PC on a 3DTV, primarily because the graphics cards have utilized the DVI standard to enable 3D and TVs have used the HDMI standard. Another issue has been the different frequencies and signals used to playback 3D on a PC monitor and a TV.

This means that 3D games from a PC only work on 120 Hz 3D PC monitors, such as the LG W2363D. But AMD (formerly ATI) and Nvidia have now developed new software and graphic cards for 3D gaming on 3DTVs.

Nvidia 3DTV Play

Nvidia has announced their 3DTV Play. The 3DTV Play is a system that allows you to connect your 3DTV and PC. It requires a newer Nvidia GeForce graphics card.

AMD HD3D

AMD enters the third dimension with their HD3D system. This system also allows you to enjoy your 3D PC games on a 3DTV. AMD (formerly ATI) has a range of new graphics card ready to supplement your 3D desire.

In order to utilize all of the 3D feature, you need a graphics card from AMD’s 6000 series. These graphics cards come with HDMI, that you will have to connect to your 3DTV.

AMD's HD3D system has not yet been released but will arrive soon, according to AMD. Learn more at www.amd.com
