3D monitor for AMD graphics card

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wondering what I need to buy to get 3D on 6970 card. Is a 120hz monitor and 3D vision glases all that is needed? Can someone please explain to me if there is a difference between Nvidia and AMD when it comes to this?
And does someone know a good monitor for AMD?

I have used a 3d ready TV that had its own glasses with my 5770. I used the iz3d drivers and set it up that way. But I know that the monitor you use must have its own glasses.

You can use the iz3d drivers with most TVs and monitors that come with thier own glasses, but the standard 120hz with the nvidia 3dvision shutter glasses will not work

3D ready TV's with its own emitter and glasses will work. Also Zalaman Trimon range will also work but using polarised glasses than shutter glasses.

Ok thanks for answers guys. I have looked at some monitors, but I don't think they come with any glasses at all. or does every 3D monitor come with glasses?

Edit: How do I know what 3d glasses to buy?

Don't confuse the two technologies. ATI doesn't have active shutter technology like Nvidia. They have support for stereoscopic 3D technologies through the use of polarizing glasses but it is through third party proprietary software/drivers and monitors.

Nvidia = Nvidia 3D Vision shutter glasses & 120HZ monitor

This style requires you to use Nvidia 3D Vision glasses that uses shutters 60 frames for each eye. You can buy plenty of 120Hz monitor without the 3D Vision shutter glasses. Asus also sells their 120Hz monitor with the 3D Vision kit. The problem with this is that it only works with Nvidia videocards and the monitors are heavily marketed towards the usage of 3D Vision shutter glasses even though you're suppose to be able to use polarizer glasses.

ATI = Polarizer glasses & proprietary monitor/driver/software

iz3d uses 60Hz monitor, but you need to use iz3d monitor which is kind of restricting. But they don't sell iz3d monitor anymore only the glasses. The iz3d proprietary monitor used dual DVI for their setup with drivers and software. But their monitor is discontinued, only support remains for the software/drivers and polarizing glasses. iz3d was okay looking monitor, I just couldn't get over the fact that it was ugly as hell. But with polarizer glasses you only need 60hz. The bad thing about this is that everything is proprietary.

Check out Zalman ZM-M240W if you really want to get stereoscopic 3D for ATI cards.

Another point... AMD's support for 3D is nearly non-existent. They are rely on 3rd party for implementation. On the other hand, NVIDIA is providing the drivers and hardware for 3D.
Once again...

this is not true. Not completely. ATI doesn't have anything that is official, but it really all depends on the drivers being used.

I know that you can use active shutter technology with ATI because I have done it. I have hooked my HD5770 to a Samsung LED 56" TV with active shutter glasses, and used IZ3D drivers and it worked just fine.

It sounds to me like I should sell my 6970 and buy a similar performance Nvidia card if I want 3D. Seems like AMD is really behind here. So a 3D ready monitor with active shutter glasses, while using IZ3D drivers will work just fine on a AMD graphics card?

yes, But the monitor must have its own emitter and 3d glasses. But the IZ3d drivers work great.
