3D help needed - upgrading from GTX 970 to RTX 2060

Post by makarastar »

Hi, all

(if anyone from "Helixmod" blog or the Nvidia forums is reading - I am Makara / Makarastar / Sateesh :-) )

I have an Asus VG236H 3D monitor, and the original Nvidia 3D glasses and emitter (not version 2).

I currently have a Nvidia Asus Strix Factory OC GTX 970 - which has a DVI port - so no issues there.

However I want to upgrade to the Asus ROG Strix 2060 OC - which has NO DVI port -

As my monitor only has HDMI and DVI - I have read that a HDMI to HDMI connection will not give me the full 120 Hz for 3D (nor for 2D?)

So I am guessing the only solution is to buy a RTX 2060 WITH a DVI port -

- or if I want the ROG Strix card (which has no DVI port) - to buy a rather expensive "Dual link" Display Port to DVI "ACTIVE" adapter for over £100 -

Am I correct in all the above? People have said "Passive" HDMI to DVI / Display Port to DVI adapters will only give 60 HZ - not 120 HZ...

Many thanks

I went with this 2070 in the end - it seems performance wise it's on a par with the 2060 Super.
