EVGA 750i SLI FTW?

I find it kind of odd and kind of cool that a company actually used the term FTW in the name of their product.

I wonder if they'll follow that up with the "EVGA nForce 790i SLI OMFGLOL".

Technically you can't claim something that has been "in the wild" for at least a year.

the monitor looks interesting, but i dont think the price justifies the novelty (or how ever you would put it)...

quite happy with my 22" benq that i got for a fraction of the price of this 22"..and it doesnt give me headaches.

Interesting concept indeed - I remember seeing another article about this on DT and finally it has been released. I'd love to see it in person.

However, for those that are unaware, there is a way already to have 3D of sorts on a traditional monitor already, without any funny glasses, without any special drivers, without any performance degradation and it works in every application you have.

It is simply done through the use of a Fresnel Lens. You essentially create a collimated display and can turn a normal 17 inch monitor into a 34 inch collimated 3d display... for around 50 bucks!

http://www.rickleephoto.com/rlcoll.htm for more details - this is a good introduction.

The F550 lens from 3dlens.com is what most of use that have a fresnel display, though there are a few other vendors out there that supply them also.

The effect is real, very noticeable and if you jump off a cliff in a FPS, you really feel your stomach sinking. Likewise, if you're at 22,000 feet in Falcon 4.0 (OpenFalcon or RedViper), look out your window as you are turning into a ground target, you really feel like the ground is far far below you while your internal cockpit is in your face.

Worth a try and doesn't cost much at all.




Made me laugh a little.
