Nvidia is embarking on an initial European launch of its famed stereoscopic 3D peripheral sets for the PC.

The 3D Vision package will consist of wireless glasses, a high-power IR emitter and a set of software programs that is said to apply a convincing, flicker-free, stereoscopic 3D experience to PCs.

In a press release sent out by the chipmaker, a number of developers had offered positive comments on the emerging technology.

Corey Rosemond, a marketing manager for Windows Gaming said: “By including support for previously released and upcoming Games for Windows titles, PC gamers can expect a new level of immersion in full stereoscopic 3D, and enjoy broad support for the hottest games.”
She added that “there’s never been a better time to be a PC gamer.”

A 3D Vision unit alone will be priced at around €159 and £129.99.

Though designed to work with monitors and TVs running at 120Hz and above, those tempted to buy should be aware that only a select number of PC monitors will be able to fully utilise the product.

This is why Nvidia is also launching a bundle package that includes a fully-compatible Samsung LCD monitor, priced together at €479 and £399. This bundle will also be available in the UK, Holland and across the Nordic region.
