With the real foundations laid earlier this year at CES for 3D in home theaters, Nvidia today announced a merging of its 3D Vision technology with big screen gaming.
Nvidia announced its new 3DTV Play software technology that allows consumers to connect their GeForce GPU-powered desktop or notebook computer – as long as it has HDMI or DVI – to new 3D TVs supporting HDMI 1.4 and 1080p24, 720p60, and 720p50 3D formats.
Games that support Nvidia 3D Vision include World of Warcraft – Wrath of the Lich King, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Avatar: The Game.
Nvidia 3DTV Play software will be available later this spring and sold separately with an anticipated U.S. MSRP of $39.99. It will also be available for free for current Nvidia 3D Vision customers.
To promote its 3D tech gadgets, Nvidia has teamed up with Panasonic for a coast-to-coast 2010 "Panasonic Touch the Future Tour."
