Nvidia 3D Vision 2 review: Great performance, slim availability

The Nvidia 3D Vision 2 solution is a combination of redesigned, more comfortable glasses and Lightboost technology. It's just unfortunate that so few Lightboost monitors exist.

A few years back, Nvidia released its 3D Vision Kit active 3D solution. At the time, it was the only real choice for 3D PC gaming, but its crushingly dark images and abundant crosstalk were, let's say, problematic.

The Nvidia 3D Vision 2 glasses , along with Lightboost technology, attempts to address those issues. Check out my full review now.

Lightboost makes a big difference in performance, but aside from the Asus VG278H , the monitors compatible with the technology are really difficult to find.

It's too bad too. Even for a 3D disliker, like me, Lightboost makes the best case yet for the technology on the PC. Here's hoping Nvidia and its partners redoubles its efforts in increasing the availability of these displays.


More reviews can be easily accessed from the monitor hub.
