Angry Nvidia stopping support for 3D vision

The long drawn-out death of 3D continues.

This time, it comes from chipmaker Nvidia, which said Friday it plans to stop supporting its decade-old "3D Vision." The technology, first announced in 2009, was meant to serve as a standard for PC and gaming communities. The company made the announcement on a support page on its website.

The move is the latest in the slow, painful death of 3D. The technology trend sprang to life amid the hype over James Cameron's Avatar sci-fi film in 2009. Many more 3D movies followed, while broadcasters such as ESPN began hyping the technology for use in our homes.

The rest is here if you can stomach it:

Thanks for the link wildbill. This is a very sad time for enthusiasts who love what 3D's pleasures bring to entertainment.
No consumer media replacement creates that kind of thrill.

Hi wild bill,

Know it seems as if we are sinking fast but I still have hope there will be enough left to still wet our whistles a little bit.

This is awful news. Now tell me there's no agenda to actively kill 3D.

I guess that's the end of 3D gaming. No, I will not wear a ridiculous VR headset.

I absolutely hate with a burning passion these pathetic excuses of bile these sites pass off as "articles":

"Ultimately, that's not how it played out. The glasses were goofy-looking and 3D content often cost more, pushing most people away. By 2017, 3D TV was dead."

I truly hate the media.

I wasn't aware 3D was dead in 2017. What in the heck have I been watching then? I just received Jivaro 3D yesterday. Aquaman 3D is next.

Funny-looking glasses. Lol. Yet they want us to wear this instead:

Regain 3D Vision by downgrading your NVIDIA driver to the April 11, 2019 425.31 driver.

Support Plan for 3DVision Products
Updated 03/08/2019 12:00 PM

Following the posting of the final driver from Release 418 (425.31) in April 2019, GeForce Game Ready Drivers will no longer support NVIDIA 3D Vision. The NVIDIA support team will continue to address critical driver issues for 3D Vision in Release 418 through April, 2020.

It is no longer available as a standalone download. Our 3D Vision Video Player will continue to be offered as a standalone download, for free, until the end of 2019.
