Nvidia To Bring 3D Computing To The Masses

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has detailed his vision for bringing 3D technology to the masses while speaking at a press conference in the run-up to the Computex trade show.

At the two-hour gathering, the company's 3D Experience Center announced Nvidia's upcoming projects, Tessellation and 3D, and outlined the product roadmap for the future.

Huang was enthusiastic about PCs with 3D capability.

He detailed the three prerequisites for making a system 3D-enabled: a pair of active shutter glasses; a 120Hz, 3D-capable display; and a graphics processor capable of high-definition 3D imagery.

Huang announced a list of high-end tech companies including Cyberlink, Dell, Microsoft, Panasonic, and Toshiba as partners in its project to develop the 3D PC.

Huang shared the stage with Asus CEO Jerry Chen, who also gave an insight into his company's new range of 3D-enabled devices.

Chen told the gathered press that some of the company's new tech devices are 3D-capable, such as the EeeTop PC with a 24in display and wireless G51Jx-EE laptop.
