Leading PC manufacturers are bringing 3D games, photos, videos and movies to our homes

A new category of PC called the “3D PC” has been debuted in the UK & Ireland by NVIDIA and an ecosystem of 3D partners, including Alienware, Asus, Dell, Microsoft, Toshiba and others.

By definition, a 3D PC is a desktop or notebook PC that meets the following minimum requirements:
· Includes a pair of 3D active-shutter glasses, such as the 3D Vision kit from NVIDIA, the only solution to provide full resolution 3D to each eye
· A 120Hz 3D-capable display in the form of a desktop LCD monitor, a 3D projector, a 3D TV, or a notebook PC with an integrated 3D-capable LCD
· A discrete graphics processor (like a GeForce® GPU from NVIDIA) that is capable of delivering high definition imagery to the 3D display

Many OEM and system builder websites will now feature a new category called “3D PC”, from which consumers can select the right platform for the right budget. For consumers wishing to upgrade their existing PC, worldwide e-tailers and retailers will now feature branded 3D PC components, so consumers will know they are suitable for building a PC capable of running 3D content.

In the UK & Ireland NVIDIA is working with the following partners to bring 3D PCs and components to consumers:
· MESH
· Novatech
· Overclockers
· Scan
