A big issue is that you lose all the color depth when you do this because of the bandwidth limitations of 120hz/4K.
The ability to run with 4K 3D is not new and a number of professional cinema type projectors have supported it for a number of years. I did an installation that was an offshoot of a 3 dimensional projection space which used a Christie cinema DLP with dual DisplayPort inputs. It was fed from a very high end PC and modeled 3 dimensional virtual walk through spaces as part of design and development. The main chamber used 5 projectors within a open sided cube for above/below, and 3-sides of dimensional projection with active glasses. The projector we installed was for an overflow space so others could take part of the 3D environment.
It required dual DP connections to achieve the 3D effect.
Cost was in the 100 grand range.
No consumer level product is anywhere in our sub $3,000 ball park, and may not be for a long time. When the HDMI 2.1 specification is ratified and official, and we finally see equipment being produced, then this may make it to some chips that are manufactured, but not yet, and not for several years to come, at the earliest, if ever.
