Nvidia have announced the release of their Nvidia 3D Vision 2 kit, updating their 3D-for-PC hardware to allow for more comfortable glasses and boosting brightness levels for a more vibrant gaming experience.
The active shutter glasses, paired with an IR emitter that works alongside compatible Nvidia graphics cards, now feature 20% larger lenses that feature the new LightBoost technology. While the size offers a larger viewing area than before, LightBoost boasts 2x brighter 3D images than previous 3D solutions, and also improves colour reproduction.
Environmental is also more prominent with the new glasses, meaning you wont have to strain to read your keyboard keys.
“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.”
So far only the Asus VG278H 27-inch (1920×1080) monitor works with LightBoost, though Acer and BenQ models are coming soon, promise Nvidia.
Launching by the end of the month, the Nvidia 3D Vision 2 kit will be available from all major PC retailers for $149, as well as Nvidia’s online store. Spare pairs of Nvidia 3D Vision 2 glasses, without the IR emitter, will be priced at $99.
