GeForce.com was able to go eyes-on with 3D Vision Surround, an NVIDIA technology that allows gamers to view three 3D monitors working simultaneously together, at this year's CES.

The setup that was on display featured a triple-monitor resolution of 5760 by 1080 pixels per inch. While the rig is initially seen running in 3D in the following video, NVIDIA technical marketing manager Sean Cleveland was there to demonstrate that by using an emitter, NVIDIA 3D Vision allows players to switch from 3D to 2D and vice-versa. In addition, the emitter allows gamers to tweak the depth of the 3D to their desired level of visual immersion.

As Cleveland points out, in order to get 3D Vision Surround working, enthusiasts will need three 3D displays, two of the same GeForce GPUs (400 series and up), and lastly, the latest GeForce drivers (which you can attain here) . Having this setup will allow PC gamers to experience over 500 3D Vision Surround-supported games.
