Question

Stereoscopic 3d on Gaming Laptop?

Greetings,

I have a gaming laptop which has a onboard Intel GPU and a nvidia GPU. The onboard GPU prevents nvidia from giving me full GPU options(including stereoscopic 3d options.)
Is there another way for me to get stereoscopic 3d?

Thanks

In rare cases yes.

Some Dells have an external GPU option. But that's pretty rare so for all others, no.

However if you want to watch a 3D movie you could try a 3D TV then the usual 3D video player.

That is, 3D is not just the GPU but the display so I really should just write no and no and no.

My laptop happens to be a Dell i7559.

Where could I find these options?
It's not in nvidia control panel or intel hd graphics options.

I'm not looking to use modern 3d but the older stereoscopic which can be displayed on any monitor.

To clarify I'm seeking a method to convert 3d games to stereoscopic 3d(blue/red green/magenta glasses.)

On a desktop this would be a non issue as nvidia provided 3d can do it.

That is on the web.

And as you should discover, nothing but dead ends.

You are right for the most part.
I've been searching/working on it for a few hours.
I was able to find TriDef 3d which will work for many games.

Thanks for the help.
