1080p resolution, 48 fps

(1920)x(1080)x(48)=99 532 800 (pixels per second)


I own a dell inspiron 530 and it has a pcie 1.0 16x slot I use for my videocard.

I am interested in buying a new videocard with hw acceleration for the new 3d blu ray and want to know if my computer has a bottleneck anywhere?

Bandwidth is not the issue.

You would need a graphics card that has HDMI 1.4 capability and you would need a Blu_ray DVD player program and graphics card driver that supports the Packed format so that it can be send to one of the new 3D HDTVs. I am not even sure if any of todays PC Blu_ray drives thenselves will support playing of the new 3D Blu-ray disks. See the followinng link for more details:

I'm guessing the ati videocards won't have 3d support till northern islands is released in late 2010 - early 2011. Seeing as the hdmi specification was just announced and they (AMD) need time to debug.


But you think my pcie 1.0 isn't a bandwidth problem? That's good.

Doubt you'll have a problem with pcie1. 3d isn't going to be mainstream for HTPC's for a couple years so be patient. By then i'm assuming you'll have another motherboard anyways. This is similar to bluray It cameout a few years ago and finally is catching on to mainstream.
