How much is 3D worth to you? At CES we were able to take a look at the iZ3D display,a monitor that can turn any DirectX game into a 3D experience. Whilethe picture may look blurry, put on a set of glasses and you get thegame in glorious 3D. It's a striking effect, and people crowded aroundto see Unreal Tournament 3 showing on the hardware.


And it is hardware. Because no one wanted to compromise picture qualityor resolution (the monitor runs at 1680x1050), the monitor is made withtwo angled displays (one for each eye) instead of just one. Sure, youneed the glasses, but playing a shooter in 3D seems worth it. Thetechnology only makes the monitor slightly thicker than a normal LCDdisplay. There are a few gotchas, however:

  •      
         Does not support SLI or Crossfire Configuration     
         
  •      
         Does not support Dual Monitor Configuration     
         
  •      
         Does not support 64-Bit Operating Systems     
         
  •      
         Does not support OpenGL Applications     
         
  •      
         Performance may vary depending on game and system configuration.     
         

The 22" monitor, which is available now, runs a cool $999.99.Whether or not the added cost and lack of the above features is worthit to you, the 3D effect proved to be very enticing in my limited timewith it. Tempting, indeed.
