Not using a Nvidia card for your HTPC? There’s still hope.
Nvidia’ 3DTV Play software brings your PC into the 3D realm. It lets you watch 3D Blu-rays, and adds support for 3D gaming as well, but it only works with Nvidia graphics cards. If you’re using anything else, it’s just not going to work.
Of course, CyberLink isn’t going to leave you hanging. If you’re using an Intel G45, Radeon HD 2400, Geforce 8800GT or better, you can get full 3D playback using PowerDVD 10 3D Ultra.
In addition to 3D Blu-ray playback, PowerDVD 10 also sports TrueTheater 3D technology, which converts 2D movies into 3D. Of course, the program is fully compatible with all forms of 3D displays and all 3D file formats, so you don’t need to worry about compatibility.
PowerDVD 10 3D Ultra can be had for $99. If you picked up PowerDVD 10 Mark II, you’re in luck, because you’ll get a free upgrade later this Summer.
