Is it possible to run Nvidia 3D Vision 2 on AMD Card ? I have an AMD HD 6870. I think I will using the Benq XL2420T ( or the TX ) monitor. but this monitor will only support Nvidia 3d Vision 2. And, I dont really understand 3d, so could somebody tell me what is 3d Emitter IR ?

You can only run Nvidia's 3D vision 2 with a Nvidia card , AMD has thier own version and supporting monitors.

That's not entirely true. I have an Nvidia 3D vision monitor that I've run HD3D on an AMD card, that said, you don't typically want to do that due to other limitations.

AMD HD3D requires displayport to get 1080p @ 60hz per eye or HDMI 1.4a to get 720p @ 60hz per eye.
Nvidia 3D Vision requires DL-DVI to get 1080p @ 60hz per eye.

I have not seen an Nvidia 3D Vision monitor support Displayport, but I have one that does have HDMI 1.4a as well as the DL-DVI connection. As far as I'm aware, and from my experience, AMD's HD3D does not require any specific standard other than HDMI 1.4a or displayport to work.

If the monitor you are looking at has Displayport as an option, there should not be a reason it wouldn't work on the AMD system, but I have not used that monitor, but the Nvidia 3D vision monitor in my sig does work with HDMI 1.4a, the other standard AMD works with.

But with the Nvidia 3d Vision glasses will work ?

They worked for me. That said, I switched to Nvidia cards to have 3D vision at 1080p (I only had HDMI as an option with AMD). If that monitor has displayport as well as dl-DVI, there is a good chance it'll work. I do not, however, know if the lightboost will.

This monitor is on Newegg and it incorporates the Nvidia 3D vision 2 technology. If you read the Overview tab you will come across this foot note;

1 VG278H 3D feature can only be activated via Dual-link DVI cable connection with a NVIDIA 3D Vision Kit, a compatible NVIDIA-GPU graphics card, a PC with Microsoft Windows Vista/7 OS, and NVIDIA 3D Vision drivers installed. Moreover, the resolution/timing must be set at 1920x1080@120/110/100Hz.

I'm sure if the monitor would fully support the AMD card running the Nvidia 3D Vision 2 then it would certianly say so to further thier sales capacity. You might be better off with a monitor that is not promoting either card like this one;

If the 3D only works through DVI, then ya, the AMD system won't work. Mine does say it works through HDMI or DVI, which is why the AMD solution works.

Thank you for your reply. But I still doesn't understand 1 things. What is the "3D Emitter IR" ??? Thank you for your help !

EDIT: The Benq XL2420"TX" also included 1 Nvidia 3D Glasses and 3D Emmiter IR, which I dont know what that is. I want to know because I have to choose between one of this monitor. the price of the "TX" version almost double the price of the "T" version ( I see it on amazon.com )

As mentioned above, that monitor will not work with an AMD card for 3D, but if you change cards, it will.

The emmiter is what syncs your glasses up with your monitors refresh rate allowing the effect of 3D.

So, Im guessing Its an active 3d ( not the passive 3d ), that the glasses uses battery to sync with the monitor. Thanks !!!

EDIT: Just want to ask. Does Display Port and Mini Display Port act the same ?

Yes, only Displayport (or mini dp) works on AMD systems and uses frame packing as a way to transfer information to the monitor. DVI does not use frame packing which is it does not work for AMD.

inzone has the right response, although mine is true in some cases, not in this one.
