NVIDIA Introduces New 3D Vision Wired Glasses for Only $99

New Wired Model Delivers Same Award-Wining 3D Vision Quality and Features with Sleek New Design, Making Full HD (1080p) 3D PC Gaming More Affordable


TAIPEI—May 30, 2011— COMPUTEX 2011—NVIDIA today announced a new addition to the NVIDIA 3D Vision product family: NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses. The new glasses make the world’s best 3D PC experience more affordable at $99 (U.S. MSRP), and offer the same award-winning 3D quality and features of 3D Vision wireless glasses.

NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses, which feature NVIDIA’s advanced active-shutter technology, allow gamers and 3D enthusiasts to access the broadest selection of high-quality 3D content available today, including more than 525 full-HD 3D games, Blu-ray 3D movies, and streaming 3D video from YouTube and 3DVisionLive.com. NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses also support more than 65 different 3D Vision monitors, notebooks, and projectors, giving users complete flexibility in configuring their 3D Vision PCs.

NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses include a 10-foot USB 2.0 cable for direct, easy connection to a 3D Vision PC or notebook. This makes it ideal for LAN gaming events and iCafe gaming centers, as it does not require batteries and the cable can easily be secured to a PC with an optional computer lock to minimize theft.

“3D Vision provides gamers and enthusiasts with the world’s largest ecosystem of 3D products and features,” said Phil Eisler, general manager of 3D Vision at NVIDIA. “3D fans have been waiting for more affordable glasses, and we’re expecting our new 3D Vision wired glasses to hit the sweet spot for them.”

NVIDIA 3D Vision wired glasses are expected to be available beginning in late-June 2011 from the NVIDIA Store, as well as from leading retailers and e-tailers. For more information about 3D Vision visit www.nvidia.com/3dvision.

Now all I need is a 120hz monitor.

That is just too awesome, with this news it's time for me to start saving for a quality 3D monitor. The wireless glasses are only slightly more expensive though; do these not require the ir emitter or something else?

i have 3d tv and just use nivdia 3d tv with samsung wireless glasses about $49 bucks works great you just have to watch your set up sometimes

@LBowen - No emmitter required with the wired glasses. Just plug 'em in, install the software, and go--provided you've got the right hardware.

Sweet thanks for the response guys. Definitely going to upgrade soon :)

$99 is still too much money.  Think about all of the 2D Blu-ray movies you can buy for that price.

I kind of agree. I thought it would be a notable reduction but I guess the 30 dollars that we save are due to the fact that it's no longer wireless.

$99 is much more practical. I played around for a while with the Nvidia drivers using some blue/red glasses and was impressed with gaming overall. Gave me a bit of a headache after a while, but active glasses and full color should help with that a good bit.

At $99 I would consider it come monitor upgrade time.


After thought. Idk if I really need another wire hanging from my head.

You can never have enough wires. Hell I'm wired everything! Wired mouse, wired keyboard, the works!

That's cool!  When will they develop wireless glasses that can be charged just from the radiation emitted from your TV / monitor screen?  Or by the mere movements of your head (like kinetic watches)?  or by the heat from your head/body?  That would be coool!  :)
