gtx 580 and 3d

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi all

i have a gxt 580 and i purchased a mini hdmi to hdmi cable, after discovering that i needed an adaptor and that it wasnt included in the box. but i want to use it in my panasonic 3d tv and play 3d games and watch 3d movies. will it work? i cant seem to find any solid info. i have read that i need an sli setup and that i need multiple screens, and that i need this 3d vision goggles thing.

so, whats the go?

if it matters, the panasonic tele is the Panasonic Viera P50VT-20A and is fully 3D capable. and my system specs are in my sig.

Cheers

You're going to need the 3D vision kit and a 3D vision ready monitor. I have no idea if it has support for HDTVs. You do not need multiple screens--that's for 3D vision surround.

For single monitor you do not need to SLI but for multiple monitors you will need to

Your graphics card should do just fine, especially if you go SLI. The adapter should not be a problem either. I'm not sure if Nvidia 3D vision supports that model TV though.

ah. bugger. well my tv isnt listed in the supported displays. and does that mean that the 3d signal cant be passed through the hdmi to the plasma for 3d processing?

cheers

You can use this, which is basically software that you download that allows you to use the Nvidia 3D technology but uses the glasses that come with your 3D TV. There's a much larger list of supported TVs but I still don't see your specific TV on there so I'm not sure.

It will work, all you need is Nvidia's software called "3DTV Play" (see here). That's all you need, just the software. Its only a 6mb download but costs $40. You can try it for 14 days free to see if everything works okay.

With 3DTV Play, you use your TV's 3D glasses. I have a Panasonic GT25 and 3DTV Play works great. In fact, Panasonic and Nvidia worked together to make sure it worked with Viera 3D TV's.

Btw, your GTX 580 is massive, massive, massive overkill for 3D on an HDTV because 3D on an HDTV is limited to 720p @ 60fps or 1080p @ 24fps (its a limitation of the hdmi 1.4a standard; there's only enough bandwidth to handle those resolutions at 3D).

Gpu wise all you need is at most I would say is a GTX 470. I'm building a 3DTV desktop myself and just putting an GTX 260 in it.

I'm pretty sure if you want nV 3d gaming to work as designed, you need a monitor that can accept a 120Hz signal. Just being a blu-ray 3d-ready TV set is not enough, as these don't (necessarily) properly handle a 120Hz signal.

Just to be clear, when a TV says it's 120Hz, that's different from being able to accept a 120Hz signal.

If there is some workaround that allows nV 3d vision on a regular 3d TV (dunno if there is or not), you are going to end up limited because the TV is only going to accept a 60Hz signal, which means for all practical purposes your 3d image is only going to be displaying at 30fps.

Blu-ray 3d at 30fps is fine, but for gaming in 3d I have to think 30fps would leave a lot to be desired.

I've tried Nvidia 3D with both a 3D monitor and a 3D HDTV. It works with both but the implementation between the two is slightly different

3D monitor: need Nvidia's 3D glasses kit and Nvidia 3D Vision drivers

3D HDTV: do not need Nvidia 3D glasses kit (because it uses the tv's 3D glasses); only need Nvidia's "3DTV Play" software
