are they the nvidia 3d ready 120hrz monitors? i got the info directly from a ATi press release about the NVIDIA proprietary lock-down. ATI said that nvidia deliberately uses the extra pins in DVI connectors to verify that the monitor only works on NVIDIA GPU. It is part of the NVIDIA 3d ready supported display program.
Basically- if you want your monitor or projector to work with nvidia's license (3d vision glasses)- has has to be proprietary (according to ATI press release). This of course does not apply to new HDMI 1.4a tvs that come with glasses and will be supported soon.
I hope this proprietary stuff goes away- its really bad and confusing for the consumer. Nvidia just had the market cornered for so long they could pull the kind of stuff off.
here is the link in case you think im just making this stuff up:http://www.digitalversus.com/3d-film...icle-1086.html
I am personally really looking forward to Display port 1.2 being adopted so we can get rid of the lame HDMI limitations. I hope the next generation of tv's and projectors support DP 1.2. also competition will bring prices down! making 3d more mainstream- and this should bring out even more great 3d content.
