Multi Monitor + 3D Vision Testing


3D Vision in hasnít been covered here on Hardware Canucks in quite some time but with the GTX 690ís ability to display high framerates across multiple displays; our testing just wouldnít have been complete without this section. Honestly, the ability of using a single card for 3D Vision Surround was an opportunity that just couldnít be missed. An extreme card deserves extreme tests, right? The results you see below were achieved with three Acer GD235HZ monitors, each running at 1080P resolution hooked up to a single GTX 690 through dual link DVI cables.





Impressive, isnít it? While AMDís 3D effort is mired in the world of ďopen sourceĒ oblivion, NVIDIA has forged ahead and they now have a single card that can push stereoscopic 3D signals two three monitors, all while games are running at maximum detail settings. The performance penalty is massive but with a few small tweaks, all of these titles should deliver playable framerates.

Plus, with new 3D Vision profiles being released on a regular basis, most of the newest games will have at least some form of support quickly. If you have the money for a GTX 690, you should at least consider this type of awe-inducing setup.
