Nvidia 3D Vision Vs. AMD HD3D: 18 Games, Evaluated

Aliens Vs. Predator

AMD HD3D and the TriDef Ignition Driver:

Good 3D result in DirectX 9 with Virtual 3D mode; DirectX 11 does not work

In DirectX 9, the TriDef driver provides an excellent result with Virtual 3D mode

Aliens vs. Predator works beautifully with the TriDef Ignition driver in DirectX 9 mode, but only with Virtual 3D enabled. We couldn’t get a stereoscopic result at all with the game running in DirectX 11.

Again, in this game, DirectX 11 doesn’t offer much over DirectX 9. Thus, the loss isn't significant.

Nvidia 3D Vision:

Not recommended

The Nvidia 3D Vision solution is unplayable in this game

This game displays significant lighting and motion blur anomalies with 3D Vision. While motion blur can be disabled, no combination of settings could get rid of the lighting differences hitting each eye. Thus, we consider this game unplayable with 3D Vision.

    Except for the ones where it's not recommended. Good thing I have one on this rig! Now I just got to shell out some cash for some 3D Tech.

    3D is over hyped in my opinion, it will be some more time before games can correctly exploit it.

    Everytime nVidia pushes out a proprietary format they shoot themselves in the foot. They just can't make it marketable with such a low market share. You need something like Microsofts 90% market share to think about making a closed standard.
    Anyone notice the bevel on the Samsung model. That beautiful for multi-monitor.

    During preliminary testing, we noticed that a decent Phenom II X4 had some trouble providing smooth frame rates, and mid-level graphics cards were cut down to their knees

    Time for Bulldozer!!!

    Would it kill Tom's to use high-resolution pop-up pics? It's nearly impossible to discern any differences in detail or artifacts when comparing such low-resolution images. C'mon...1024 x 317? Seriously?
