3D Computers


Thursday, 3 June 2010

Last April, we remember that Sony had updated the firmware of its PlayStation 3 console in order to prepare for the arrival of the first games in 3D. More recently, the Director of Ubisoft has defined the contours of years to come in the videogame medium, contours will be in 3D. This is a message clearly intended for PC manufacturers who may need to start thinking hard about 3D Computers.

Since the immense success of Avatar in the cinemas and or nearly everyone agrees that 3D technology is undoubtedly the next big technological leap and as big as the transition from VHS to DVD a few years ago. Hollywood studios have been among the first to feel this new trend, and hardly a week goes by without a film in 3D being released. It must be said that the , $ 2.71 billion revenue generated by the latest film by James Cameron has done enough to make your head spin ... and whet appetites of many in the industry.

And if the TV manufacturers have naturally followed suit, the manufacturers of computers seemed more down on the ground. But in recent days, several companies have advanced their thinking on 3D technology. Thus, , some companies like nVidia, Alienware and Asus want to take advantage of the excitement around this technology to boost sales of computers, through a kind of unofficial label “3D PC” label

To be considered a 3D PC, the machine must meet certain specific criteria: have active 3D glasses, have an LCD display (or 3D projector) capable of displaying a 3D frequency of 120 Hz and finally a graphics processor fast enough to provide images in high definition.

On May 20, the director of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot had pitched the trend of the world gaming for next two to three years, during a telephone conversation with investors: He suggested that next year should see maybe 15% to 20% of 3D games released on next generation consoles ... and he suggested that in the following year at least 50% of the games will be in 3D.
