While AMD is not in the business of making 3D glasses or displays, the Samsung Syncmaster S23A750D is an important part of their ecosystem because it helps them demonstrate that their GPUs are every bit as competitive as Nvidia’s, and promotes the potential of industry-backed standards.  Formerly an Nvidia partner, Samsung's latest 3D display is not Nvidia 3D Vision compatible, so there are probably some politics attached to this product as well.  How does it stack up as a 3D gaming display?  Today we find out!

Seems like a decent monitor. I have a 23 inch samsung first gen. I don't even know what the new stuff is like. I am hoping there comes out a 32 inch 1080p monitor with dvi-d display port hdmi 1.4a for 600 bucks. $700 -$500 for a 23-27 inch is a big outragous considering i am looking at getting a 50 inch 3dtv for less than 1200 i think. Glasses included in 3d monitor tvs should not be added to cost, Damn only extra glasses. Hopefully its not gonna be a poor following in sales. More units sold = more money.

Neil, you can open a photo with the Stereoscopic Player, and it will allow you to cycle through all images in the folder by just pressing the space bar. And it fully supports AMD HD3D and pretty much everything else out there (even in windowed mode).

Also, I basically asked Andrew Fear point blank why Nvidia does not completely support the HDMI 1.4a standard (in regards to the Sony HMZ-T1). He had this to say:

We test pretty much test every TV we support. This includes adjusting size for convergence, depth, etc. The Sony is a grea example of that since it advertises that is like a 150" TV, but in reality it's more like 90, so we have to adjust the settings.

We've been releasing 3DTV Play Updates in between driver releases for a while now. It allows us to add support for products without requiring you to download an entire new driver. Eventually the support will be rolled into all new drivers going forward. ... &p=1324252

In another thread he flat out denied that the company charges licensing fees for 3DTV Play:

andrewf@nvidia wrote:
I'll settle this rumor right now.

We charge ZERO dollars for 3DTV Play to any HW manufacturer.

3DTV Play is a software product that does take real engineers to support the features and games we add to it, which is why its a paid for piece of software. ... try1318009

Its really sad Nvidia seem to refuse to want to support any standard fully. It would be super easy for them to just turn HDMI 1.4a on (fully, no whitelist). In fact, they spend more time, effort and money blocking people from using otherwise fully working hardware. They seem a lot more interested in pushing people into their proprietary ecosystem, even at the costs of hurting consumers and even their own partners (like Samsung). Really sad.

While it is a shame that a point to point connection between an Nvidia card won't work with this, it can easily be remedied by using an amplifier that is HDMI 1.4A certified with 3DTV Play. This is actually a good thing if you have multiple input devices like what was tested in this article and don't want the hassle of unplugging hardware over and over again just to change sources. A great case of standards actually working in the favor of the consumer!
