Compatible GeForce 3D Vision-Ready displays devices

Unlike conventional LCD monitors, the latest high-end panels utilize a full 120 Hz refresh rate to offer an exceptional 3D viewing experience on your desktop. With the ability to dedicate a full 60 Hz frame to each eye, you retain full resolution at all times, maximize image quality, and create the most immersive possible gaming environment. Some examples of compatible display hardware are:

  • Samsung SyncMaster 2233RZ 120 Hz LCD display
  • ViewSonic FuHzion VX2265wm 120 Hz LCD display
  • 100 Hz and higher analog CRT
  • Mitsubishi 1080p DLP Home Theater TV: WD-57833, WD-60735, WD-60C8, WD-65735, WD-65736, WD-65C8, WD-65833, WD-65835, WD-73735, WD-73736, WD-73833, WD-73835, WD-73C8, L65-A90
  • Generic DLP Home Theater TV supporting 3D checkerboard pattern format
  • DepthQ HD 3D Projector by LightSpeed Design, Inc.


  • Dual-Link DVI cable must be used with the 120Hz LCD monitors.
  • Although many LCD HDTVs can support "120 Hz" mode, these HDTVs are not supported by GeForce 3D Vision as they do not offer a 120 Hz refresh rate input over HDMI and only accept a 60 Hz input.
  • GeForce 3D Vision requires LCDs that can accept a 120 Hz refresh rate input over dual-link DVI to provide flicker-free stereoscopic 3D gaming.

Compatible NVIDIA GeForce GPUs:

  • GeForce GTX 295
  • GeForce GTX 285
  • GeForce GTX 280
  • GeForce GTX 260
  • GeForce 9800 GX2
  • GeForce 9800 GTX+

Could you get back to me with suggestions for procedures to program this device (which I have and find great) in clinical application for testing and research in human stereoscopic vision. Thanks.

You should contact the manufacturer, NVIDIA Corporation, for that information.

We're a review site, not a programming site. Your best bet would be to contact NVIDIA directly; they have the developer's kits and programs you'd need (although I doubt they have anything specifically for the clinical applications you're looking for). You'll need some expertise in the C and C++ programming languages to use NVIDIA's development tools, though.

# Nvidia 3D ripoffpaul 2013-02-05 10:37
First off i have to admit i send this having only read your first page, i was googlein the old Nvidia 3D test logo, AS IT NO LONGER IS IN WITH THE NEW DRIVER PACKS, I also was sold having seen the test demo, thought the logo was unreal the way it came out the screen and then i think turned and went back in, I'm working to low class(but happy) and i spent good money on a new screen the 3d software and 2 pairs of glasses,(and a 3d ready GFX card) and in 2 years never got anything i thought that was 20% as good as the OLD test logo, Int it funny how they dropped the test on the following driver pack update!!!!!!!!, Yes i feel i was ripped off by Nvidia, The test shows the software works but no games come close and most hurt your eyes, due to the fact NO games are fully made for this software and are just adapted to suit and released well before there tested for comfortable viewing, the test also show that Nvidia 3D even with such depth viewing can be kept at a comfortable level for viewing if made properly, I never use the 3d anymore (never really used it) as having spent a s Nvidia need to invest in new software that is MADE for this gear, and stop ripping us of with hand picked adapted games which don't fully work, Thx Paul Sorry for the moan.
