NVidia Geforce 3D Vision – show off

Precum am spus in postul anterior, m-am intors, sunt liber, si bineinteles, nu puteam sa las deoparte una din primele mele pasiuni, si anume bloggingul. Tinand cont de faptul ca o luasem pe ulei la un moment dat, si nu mai dadeam atentie subiectelor pe care le scriam, am decis sa ma intorc atunci cand simt ca e asa cum ar trebui sa fie, iar acest articol ar trebui sa fie unul din primele dupa … revolutie 🙂

Anyway, nu doresc sa va las sa mai asteptati mult. Nu stiu daca multi dintre voi ati auzit, dar Nvidia se ocupa de ceva timp de stereoscopic gaming, adica real gaming in 3D. Ce inseamna asta? Ce vedem noi pe ecrane la ora actuala e un 3D simulat. E de fapt un 2D sofisticat. 3D inseamna sa privesti la un joc, ca si cum ai privi in camera, sa vezi adancimea obiectelor, real.

Ce pot sa spun, de cand am auzit de asta anul trecut, am tot stat cu ochii sa vad lansarea, si ceva feedbacks, iar dupa 2 saptamani de lansare, am rugat pe un prieten din State sa imi trimita o pereche.

Sa trecem la specificatii tehnice inainte de a sari cu pozele:

NVidia stereoscopic site – aici puteti sa va documentati despre tot.

Ce am comandat:

Monitor – nu se pot folosi ochelarii cu orice monitor, din cauza refreshului de 60 hertzi al monitoarelor curente. Sunt 2 monitoare disponibile:

  • Samsung® SyncMaster 2233RZ 120 Hz LCD display
  • ViewSonic® FuHzion™ VX2265wm 120 Hz LCD display

Placi video – GeForce 8 in sus – aici am de facut o paranteza: ca un joc sa iti mearga ok in 3d stereoscopic, inseamna ca placa trebuie sa fie destul de puternica sa scoata minim 60 fps in jocul respectiv. De ce? Atunci cand modul 3d este enabled, se creaza 2 imagini identice ale jocului, una pentru ochiul drept, si una pentru ochiu stang, si fps real in 3d mode enabled, o sa fie 30 fps.

Pentru ca vroiam sa ma bucur de experienta, am comandat monitorul Samsung, o placa video GeForce GTX 285  – 1 gb GDDR3, si pachetul cu ochelarii.

Pret in state – 400 $ monitor si 200 $ ochelari. La vama o sa incerce sa va ia  taxa pentru produs, dar am fost norocos. Cehii nu incearca sa te jupoaie daca primesti cadouri.

Ce avem in mana:

Aici sunt ochelarii. Sunt foarte usori, sunt din material plastic, si au un port USB. Inainte de a ii folosi, trebuie lasati la incarcat 4 ore. Din feedbackurile pe care le-am citit la alte solutii de 3d gaming, am inteles ca dupa 3 4 ore de gaming, apar probleme cu ochii si dureri de cap. M-am jucat cam 4 ore, si pot spune ca sunt cu adevarat amazing. Dureaza cam 10 minute pana sa te obisnuiesti cu senzatia, dar … sa vezi atatea detalii, e pur si simplu uimitor. Modul 3d intra atunci cand jocul se incarca, apesi control+f4 si ochelarii se intuneca, si vezi deja in 3d. La 10 minute de nefolosire, ochelarii se opresc automat, si au o husa in care se tin, pentru a nu se zgaria lentilele.

Ochelarii se conecteaza prin infrarosu la emitator, si am pus pachetul de tigari langa el ca sa va dati seama ca toata solutia ocupa foarte putin spatiu si e chiar comod sa le ai prin preajma.

0080051Mai sus e monitorul, si cam asa arata final setup.

Ochelarii si monitorul apar in europa in Aprilie, dar presupun ca pretul va fi cu mult mai mare fata de ofertele din state.

Cateva concluzii de final, pentru ca nu vreau sa va plictisesc prea mult, in cazul in care chiar ati ajuns la final:

PRO:

– Daca reusesti sa cumperi din state direct, pretul e ultra ieftin, tinand cont ca un BFG  GTX 285 OCX eu l-am luat cu 400 $ si la magazin in oras l-am gasit la 550 euro, iar monitorul 400 $ cu refresh de 120 hz – fata de 600 euro – actualul monitor Samsung Syncmaster 260.

– Experienta in jocuri … e uimitoare eu am petrecut cateva ore doar sa ma uit prin jur, nici macar nu am stat sa ma joc, ma uitam la picaturile de apa care cadeau, sau ma invarteam in jurul vreunui stalp … stiu aiurea, dar era prea frumos, si pare prea real ca sa nu te captiveze.

CONTRA:

– Daca nu ai o placa video … buna, experienta 3d nu e chiar perfecta. Nu poti mari detaliile, si nu se comporta jocurile cum trebuie.

– Suportul e destul de scazut, cred ca e un produs test totusi de la nvidia, dar desi sunt peste 150 jocuri suportate oficial, activitatea pe forum, si frecventa cu care se lanseaza drivere noi lasa mult de dorit.

– Pretul – pentru o chestie care ar trebui sa fie de viitor, pretul e destul de mare, tinand cont ca trebuie sa cumperi si placa video, si monitor, si ochelari, e o gaura serioasa in buget, si nu merge unul fara celalalt.

Sper ca v-a placut articolul, si daca aveti intrebari, le voi raspunde cu placere

Right. I have to speak up a bit for the new stuff that it’s available in WP 2.7.

1 – ALL NEW dashboard. This is totally freakin awesome. The guys who worked this out should be given an award. It’s so intuitive, menu in the left, with AJAX drop down buttons, the menus simplified, and made WAY more intuitive than before.

torrentbits.ro a fost inchis

Un site care promova descărcarea de filme piratate a fost închis de politiştii bucureşteni. La percheziţia făcută în locuinţa proprietarului site-ului au fost găsite mii de cd-uri cu filme preluate de pe internet.

Poliţiştii îi cercetează pe cei doi proprietari ai site-ului pentru promovarea de mărfuri piratate. Infracţiunea poate fi pedepsită cu cel mult patru ani de închisoare.

au inchis frate torrentbits. Ce tare, in loc sa mearga pe urmele celor care fura miliarde in guvern, merg dupa site-urile de torrenti. bravo politia romana !!!

am primit pe mess acum, o chestie.

YVE WROTE:

Am observat ca dezinformarea pleaca tot de la voi. Hai sa o lamurim sa nu mai lansati zvonuri aiurea…

1. Nu am vandut niciodata nici un disc piratat. Ei stiu asta (anchetatorii)
2. Am fost dat in gat de cineva. Nu mai conteaza cine. Mai rau este ca sunt in cercetare inca vre-o 10 trackere. Ii intereseaza serverele si ownerii. Userii sa stea linistiti
3. Am fost monitorizat, urmarit si filmat pe strada, ascultat telefoanele…etc (de parca eram mare spion) timp de peste 4-5 luni… Stiau absolut tot. Au stiut exact cand si unde sa vina.
4. Nu am avut niciodata echipamente de copiere si/sau de distributie a materialelor piratate. Am avut un simplu dvd-r ( Samsung).
5. Totul a fost doar un hobby…nimic mai mult.

Melodie de relax:


Romanian leaders clash on live TV

Romanian PM Calin Popescu Tariceanu (left) and President Traian Basescu

The very public split threatens the ruling coalition

A war of words between Romanian President Traian Basescu and Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu has erupted on live national television. The two former political allies accused each other on air of involvement in dubious multi-million-dollar energy deals.

The outburst happened ahead of a debate in parliament on a motion of impeachment against the president.

Mr Basescu has constantly criticised Mr Tariceanu since the start of 2007.

The setting was innocent enough. Mr Tariceanu was invited to talk on television about the role of Romania’s “media moguls” on Tuesday evening.

However, the discussion quickly turned to the long-running feud dominating political life in Romania, between President Basescu and the prime minister.

Allegations and insults

Mr Tariceanu accused the president of intervening on behalf of an aluminium company, to help it secure a cheap energy deal.

“Every one of us has had to pay for this,” said the prime minister.

Minutes later, the president himself phoned in, to respond live on air.

Just because you are on TV, it doesn’t mean you can say anything you want about me

President Basescu addressing PM Tariceanu

“Excuse me, Mr Prime Minister – I don’t want a nasty scene – but I’m asking you not to lie in public. Just because you are on TV, it doesn’t mean you can say anything you want about me,” Mr Basescu said.

He went on to accuse the prime minister of involvement in dubious contracts himself, and of tolerating what he called “a mafia” in the energy sector.

Impeachment looming

He said that he intervened in the case of the aluminium company in an effort to expose how officials were taking “suitcases full of cash”, in exchange for granting energy contracts.

Then the exchange between the two men got even more bitter and personal.

At one point, the president mocked the prime minister’s appearance.

The episode underlines the deepening rift between the two, threatening the fragile, centre-right coalition government.

The opposition Social Democrats are trying to cash in, by pushing for a referendum on impeaching the president.

The impeachment debate is scheduled to take place on 28 February and if a majority of deputies and senators vote in favour, a referendum has to be held within a month, on whether to remove the president from office.

Romania s MPs suspend president

President Traian Basescu

Basescu promised a new leadership style when he won the 2004 election

The Romanian parliament has voted to suspend President Traian Basescu amid a deepening political crisis.Members of parliament have accused him of violating Romania’s constitution, even though the constitutional court found no evidence of that.

He has been at odds for several months with the Prime Minister, Calin Popescu Tariceanu.

The vote paves the way for a national referendum on Mr Basescu’s impeachment within 30 days.

But correspondents say he remains the most popular politician in the country.

Mr Basescu and Mr Tariceanu have accused each other on television of involvement in dubious multi-million-dollar energy deals.

In the parliament on Thursday 322 members voted to suspend Mr Basescu, with 108 against and 10 abstentions.

The suspension was proposed by the leftist opposition party PSD.

Mr Basescu denies any wrongdoing and has vowed to resign if a referendum on his impeachment is called.
