Acer's New 120Hz LCD Ready for Nvidia 3D Vision

Acer announced on Tuesday that its GD235HZ LCD display is ready for Nvidia's 3D Vision system. Sporting a tasty 120 Hz refresh rate, the 23.6-inch display will attempt to bring a new level of PC gaming to your rig.

For the uninitiated, Nvidia's 3D Vision system includes active-shutter glasses, a wireless USB transmitter, and software that transforms "hundreds" of games into a 3D experience.

"We see a strong market for 3D technology products that offer the quality and value that Acer is known for providing, as we’ve demonstrated with our Acer notebook with 3D technology and now with this new Acer GD235HZ display," said Irene Chan, senior product marketing manager for peripherals, Acer America.

Available this month for $399.99, Acer's GD235HZ LCD offers a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 16:9. The LCD also offers a 80,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, a 1000:1 native contrast ratio, a pixel pitch of 0.2715mm, and a response time of 2ms (G to G). The LCD also provides one HDMI input (w/HDMI), one DVI input, and one VGA input.

PC gamers wanting a little 3D action from Nvidia can purchase the 3D Vision Kit for an additional $199 via online retail outlets such as Newegg and more. Currently Acer's LCD panel hasn't shown up online, but stay tuned.

    A 3D demo I saw at a local electronics store did not impress me. It hurt my eyes.
