Video Excursion with the Asus V7700 Deluxe

3D Glasses

The Asus 3D glasses were a bit of a pain to wear being that I wear prescription glasses normally. You have to enter the display properties and enable the 3D glasses option in each of the APIs before use so I made sure D3D and OpenGL were both enabled. The 3D glasses seemed to work well in only one game I tested (Expendable) and it looked fantastic! The only problem was that it didn't seem to work with any of my other games. I'm assuming that there still some kinks to be removed before most software can be played in 3D glasses mode but once they do, it's going to be a blast.

The Competition

Many of our readers have been using older solutions to provide the video tasks they require but have requested that we find newer graphics solutions for them that provide the excellent 3D performance that the older models lack. This is a huge reason why I wanted to gather all the available VIVO NVIDIA solutions as well as the ATi "All in Wonder" product. We should have a VIVO modified ELSA product within the next few weeks as well as ATi's video powerhouse shortly after that. For the time being however, the V7700 Deluxe stands alone.
